Counseling & Therapy

Integrative Therapy:

Support to navigate life’s challenges

At Omaha Integrative Care, our licensed mental health therapists and psychologists practice traditional counseling as well as integrative mental health counseling — or integrative psychotherapy. Integrative counseling or integrative psychotherapy means using evidenced-based practices in addition to complementary therapy models to fit the individual needs of clients.

People come to therapy or counseling for a variety of reasons, such as depression, anxiety, grief, and other life stressors. Our integrative therapists provide individual, couples, family and group therapy for those looking to improve mood, create healthier relationships and travel through life with more ease.

Through one-on-one sessions with our experienced therapists, you’ll gain an understanding and awareness of how you interact with the world. By learning vital coping skills to help you remain present and whole, you’ll be better equipped to support and nurture your emotional health through life’s stressors, including depression, anxiety, illness, and loss. It is also an opportunity to explore old or unhealthy patterns, as well as go deeper into a new phase of personal growth.

No matter the reason that brings you to therapy at Omaha Integrative Care, we take a holistic view to support you. This means we may explore evidence-based ways to help lessen your symptoms, such as nutrition/lifestyle changes, exercise, stress-reducing techniques, and mindfulness. Ultimately, each therapy experience is unique to each individual and is guided by you as the client.

Psychological Testing at Omaha Integrative Care

Psychological evaluations at OIC can serve a number of different purposes. Most commonly, clients are referred for testing to clarify diagnoses to guide treatment with specific therapies and/or medications. Sometimes, a mental health practitioner can hear an individual’s symptoms and make a diagnosis with reasonable certainty, without giving any assessment measures. Other times, when symptoms are complex or treatments are not as effective as expected, clients are referred for testing.

Psychological assessments help to quantify a client’s symptoms using specific tests. Typically, treatment recommendations are offered after the assessments. Treatments may include psychotherapies, medications, and/or behavioral/integrative interventions. The psychologist will then collaborate with the client’s existing practitioners to create a more comprehensive integrative healthcare plan to best serve the patient.
