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.

Lisa Gallagher, PsyD I am a MA & RI licensed psychologist with over 30 years experience in the practice of evidence-based and integrative psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, mediation and meditation. I help clients move beyond stabilization of negative states of mind to actively sustain positive psychological practices to live meaningful and vitally engaged lives. I teach clients the new skills, knowledge and practices they need to sustain positive states of mind and prevent relapse. I have expertise in behavioral medicine/medical hypnosis protocols to manage symptoms (IBS, IBD, pain, surgery preparation/recovery, skin disorders, nausea & hot flashes, etc.), anxiety and depression, grief, trauma, relationships, life transitions and adoption. I am trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Behavioral Medicine, Stages of Change, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Exposure and Response Prevention, Complex Trauma Treatment, Couples & Family Therapy, stress management, and the integration of meditation and yoga with psychotherapy. I also am a Mediator and Parenting Coordinator, helping family members resolve disputes and reach mutual agreements in the midst of divorce, parenting plans, parenting coordination, elder care planning, and family business decisions.
Depending on the treatment protocol you need, you may elect to learn any of these skills: psychological flexibility, mindfulness, metacognitive thinking, self-reflection, regulation of emotions/thoughts/sensations, habit change, performance enhancement, exposure and response prevention, values-guided action steps, compassion and self compassion, conflict resolution, relationship skills, problem-solving, and attachment-informed parenting. I work with clients in an open, engaged, empathic and collaborative way. We develop, monitor and evaluate your treatment plan together to ensure that you experience our work as focused, meaningful and beneficial.
I also am an Approved Consultant for the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis, a MA GAL and Parenting Coordinator, and a Clinical Fellow of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy. I run professional consultation groups for training in clinical hypnosis and evidence-based assessment and treatment.
