It’s no secret that the past few years have brought unprecedented challenges to our health and mental well-being. With COVID-19 spreading around the world, our corner of North Brooklyn wasn’t immune to the impact of the pandemic as we went into lockdown and quarantine. While much attention has been paid to our physical health, less attention has been paid to our need to deal with the resulting feelings of fear and isolation. In the context of covering news in the community, many neighbors and local businesses continue to reach out to us at Greenpointers about their struggles. And while we do our best to build a sense of connectedness through trusted news, true healing and better rebuilding are supported by the work of trained professionals such as a local psychotherapy practice, Integrative Psychological Services in Brooklyn It is located at 117 Dubin Street.
With more than 25 psychotherapists, Integrative Psychological Services in Brooklyn (or for short, Brooklyn Integrative) focuses on the struggles of each individual. As a native of New York City, the Mary Mercado Foundation (PsyD, MS) has sought to build a practice that speaks to the unique identity of this city, one that providers often do not seem to fully understand. “I wrote my dissertation about what adults with intersecting identities including duality found helpful or unhelpful about their therapist and treatment. From my own experience working in every area in many industries, and hanging out in countless scenes and cultures, I knew that the only way to be A great therapist is to introduce myself to all walks of life. I also learned about as many techniques and techniques as possible in order to promote the greatest understanding, harmony and therapy for each client,” said Dr. Mercado.
Now as the owner of a group practice, Dr. Mercado helps other psychotherapists develop their skills and clinical acumen while providing a great place to work, including employment benefits, which promotes longevity and job stability. Each therapist has a different psychotherapy approach that is reinforced through training in different clinical areas, such as psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), emotionally focused couples/relationship therapy (EFT), trauma therapy and emotional regulation, in order to serve diverse clients. But they all take a holistic approach to improving mental health by first listening carefully to who you are and what you’re struggling with. Treatment takes into account many life variables such as culture, identity, nutrition, physical health, pharmacology, and the environment.
Whether you suffer from anxiety, depression, attention difficulties, occupational or relationship problems, cultural issues, identity issues, or are recovering from past trauma, Brooklyn Integrative Psychological Services has the support you need.
