What is Integrative Psychology?

Using various modalities of psychotherapy, the integrative psychologist and therapists at the Raby Institute help patients acheive self-acceptance and personal growth in all aspects of their lives. Together, they work through challenges patients may be facing on spiritual, emotional, psychological, and physical levels. Over time, this creates a full picture of the patient's health and wellness, and ties together how all dimensions contribute to personhood.

Erin Brewer, therapist

Psychotherapist Erin Brewer, MA, believes that "We all experience hurt and need a place to explore, process, and heal from that pain. I build that healing space with my patients so they can move towards their personal values and create a rich, fulfilling life."


Psychotherapist Erin Brewer, MA, became a therapist out of a pure desire to help people find peace and enrich relationships in their lives. She practices a blend of therapeutic approaches, depending on which option best meets the needs of the individual patient. She primarily uses more traditional cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and mindful acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and has a history of treating patients experiencing depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, and stress. She also specializes in helping couples navigate the ups and downs of their relationship.


Plus, she appreciates that many therapy patients at the Raby Institute also see physicians here. "It's a beautiful thing to have my patients' doctors under the same roof," Erin says. "Having that resource gives us a more complete picture of a person. Practicing therapy at the Raby Institute is the perfect example of mind/body medicine."

When should I see an Integrative Psychotherapist?

People tend to wait to see a therapist until they experience a personal hardship, such as a breakup, illness, or depression. But why wait?


Everyone needs healing in their minds and bodies throughout their lives--in the good times and bad. The therapy room gives patients a contained space to bring up whatever is on their mind. In that unique environment, the integrative therapist and patient explore what the patient's mind and body are telling the patient.
