Integrative Approach to Psychotherapies

Growing up as ‘a living organism,’ human beings register every life event physically, emotionally and cognitively. To survive and move on with life, one naturally suppresses or represses any unpleasant or traumatic life events to the unconscious, and sometimes totally block out these events from memory.

However, the physical and emotional memories remain and become reactivated every time another life event happens that even remotely reminds the body of past events.

One, therefore, reacts to both current and past life events in the form of panic attacks, anxiety, physical symptoms and behavioral avoidance or aggression. These events retraumatize one in amplification each time they happen.

To change any behavior and emotional overreactions requires desensitizing the body’s emotional and physical memories and bring the suppressed and repressed memories to the cognitive level with better understanding and coping skills. To achieve that, it takes the integration of cognitive behavior therapy, psychodynamic therapy, biofeedback and mind-body therapies using techniques like EMDR and N.E.T.

The team at the Yang Institute of Integrative Medicine includes highly trained, board-certified psychiatrists with extensive experience in the integrated treatment of all forms of psychological and behavioral problems. Our team also consists of some of the few providers available who combine intensive psychotherapy and, when appropriate, psychopharmacology.
