Individual therapy, sometimes called talk therapy, has been around since the late 1800’s. The benefits of therapy are far reaching and lasting. Why? Because by talking about your problems with a therapist, you do more than just vent or complain. You share your experience and get feedback from a therapist who is listening to more than just the surface of what you’re saying. I blend psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral and attachment based therapy to help you understand your issues and find solutions to. I want you to challenge yourself and tackle the behavior that makes you unhappy and. People get therapy for a variety of reasons including: relationship problems, divorce, anxiety, stress at work, eating and food issues, addictions, depression, PTSD and trauma.
Group Therapy Services
Group therapy is a valuable tool for change. Shared your story and insights with people like you who struggle with the same sort of issues you struggle with. Get feedback and hear how other people handle their triggers in a non-judgmental setting. Helping other people through your experience makes you feel supported and improves your confidence. I have groups that address weight loss and women’s issues such as parenting, divorce and menopause.
Assessment for Bariatric Surgery
Insurance companies and surgeons require you to meet with a therapist and assess your readiness for bariatric surgery. I use a test called the PsyBari and a structured interview to determine if weight loss surgery is the right choice for you. After taking a comprehensive history, we discuss your motivation and level of emotional preparedness for bariatric surgery. You leave with a plan to maximize your weight loss success. The assessment takes about 90 minutes and a report will be sent to the referring doctor.

Energy Work Avaliable by appointmeant with Janine Vente
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes physical healing. It was discovered in 1922 by Mikao Usui.
During a Reiki treatment, energy flows from the practitioners hands into the client . The client lies on a massage table, but treatment can be given with the client seated or standing. The practitioner placed their hands on or above the clients body, in a series of hand positions. These include positions around the head, shoulders, stomach and feet. More specific positions may be used depending on the needs of the client. Each position is held approximately three minutes. A Reiki session usually lasts about 45 minutes.
Reiki has a positive effect on all forms of illness and conditions. This includes upset stomach, bee stings, colds, flu, tension, anxiety, headaches as well as serious illnesses such as heart disease, depression and many types of cancer. It can help to reduce or eliminate side effects from many types of medical treatments, including chemotherapy, post op pain, or various medications. Reiki always helps, but it is highly recommended to be under the care of a medical professional.
Integrated Energy Therapy (IET) is a safe, gentle, nurturing way to empower your life by helping you to release patterns of the past.
Feelings and sensations are stored in the cells of the body. Traumatic experiences, stress, unexpressed emotions, fear, anger, resentment or self-limiting beliefs can become “stuck” or suppressed in the body, and inhibit or disrupt the vital flow of life force (energy) at a cellular level. These energy blocks limits our experience of life and can result in a lack of spontaneity, energy depletion, a feeling of unrest, agitation or dis~ease.
IET targets specific areas in the body where these “cellular memories” are stored, helping to release them on all levels~ physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. As these blocks are cleared, the suppressed charge of energy dissipates and the energy field is rebalanced. The more energy is opened, the more freely energy can flow, the closer we can move to our natural state of being: joy.
