   Individual Psychotherapy

Dr. Pearce-McCall combines psychology, relational theories, and mind-body science to bring a holistic approach to personal growth. Many of her clients are in therapy to understand themselves better; to increase their sense of engagement, contentment, and balance in life; to improve their relationships; to change patterns of behavior or thinking that aren't supporting their health and well-being. A collaborative exploration of concerns, symptoms, resources, and strengths, psychotherapy is a time to focus on yourself, your mind, and your life. Whether healing past hurts, calming current distress, or creating and implementing changes from now on, psychotherapy can make a difference.

Our minds emerge from the beautiful kaleidoscopic swirl of relationships, environment, neurobiology, experience, attention, intention, awareness, and more. Become curious, compassionate, and informed about your amazing mind. You will be inspired to take better care of your self, your relationships, and your world.

At this time, Dr. Pearce-McCall is only able to take new clients who are paying privately or using out-of-network insurance benefits.

Dr. Pearce-McCall has special expertise in working with: organizational and thought leaders and creative professionals; people in the healing and teaching professions; folks who are consciously attending to making a commitment, becoming engaged or marrying; becoming/being parents or co-parents; adult family members strengthening their relationships; and people interested in mindfulness and/or a mind-brain-relationship perspective.

Many insurance companies provide little or no coverage for relationship therapy or couples counseling, and those that do require that one individual with a mental health diagnosis be the focus of treatment. Contact your behavioral healthcare insurance and ask for specific information about your coverage for couples, marital, or family therapy for adults.

Today, many people are understanding the great benefit of having a trusted and highly trained consultant to help with relationship development, strengthening trust and communication, learning how to understand each others' minds, and living well together. For these reasons, many couples and families see Dr. Pearce-McCall for confidential wellness and relationship enrichment services that they pay for privately.
