Integrative Practices is a consortium of independent practitioners dedicated to providing integrative and evidence-based assessment, treatment, mediation and consultation to help our clients live happy, healthy and vitally engaged lives. Integrative Practices clinicians began this professional association to work in collaboration with other practitioners who share the same values for high standards of care, provision of evidence-based treatment and regular teaming with other providers to ensure effective care coordination and the benefit of additional professional consultation.
We offer a comprehensive range of behavioral health, mediation, coaching and wellness services.
