Hello Mental Health
My orientation toward individual therapy has a strong humanistic flavor. In the words of Irvin Yalom, "it's the relationship that heals." I desire to form a warm and supportive relationship, free of judgment, and full of unconditional positive regard. In doing this, I take time to understand clients through their own eyes and together we form an alliance and work towards goals as a team. In addition to a humanistic influence, I also incorporate many Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills, positive psychology interventions, and strongly encourage patients to take care of their Minds, Bodies, and Spirits. I welcome individuals from all walks of life and I celebrate diversity. I have experience working with individuals who struggle with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, thought disorders, personality disorders, trauma, and dual diagnoses (mental health and substance use diagnoses). I feel a deep sense of connection with all of my clients and have the utmost respect for their journeys. If you or someone you know is interested in receiving more information about my services, please feel free to contact me and I will gladly answer your questions.
MARY MCGRATH, LISW-S
LICENSED CLINICAL SOCIAL WORKER- CHILDREN, ADOLESCENTS, ADULTS, FAMILIES
I am a licensed mental health therapist with a great deal of experience working with children and teens (and their families), young adults, and adult women. If either you or your child is experiencing social and emotional difficulties, or life is feeling challenging or "not quite right", I invite you to contact me to decide if therapy would make sense for you at this moment. I have specialized training in the areas of play therapy and trauma therapy, and use a variety of interventions, including expressive arts and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy, to help tap into unexplored issues and – most importantly – your innate powers. I take an individualized, strengths-based approach to find practical solutions that work for each one of my clients. I work to increase emotional intelligence and build a "toolbox" of coping skills to help you or your child better navigate life's challenges. Above all, I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship to unearth strengths that have been buried and discover potential that has been locked away. I invite you to contact me to begin this journey for either you or a loved one.

I came from the field of mental health, specializing in substance abuse counseling. After spending several years in school studying psychology and counseling, I found a passion for holistic healing.

After resolving many of my own health issues with alternative and holistic remedies, I started Vivacity Healing. I am a certified AcuDetox specialist, reflexologist, reiki practitioner, iridologist, and acupressure specialist.

I have been helping people all of my professional life. Starting first with medicine, my career later shifted to treating addictions and becoming a life coach.

In addition I am the only provider in the TriState certified in Mindfulness Training for Smoking (MTS), an immersive, highly effective method to quit smoking and stay quit.
Today I run marathons, compose music, and mindfully approach the way I eat and interact with our environment. And in my spare time I'm writing a rock musical, "HIGHER, about the rollercoaster of emotions that speaks the truth of individuals and families struggling with heroin addiction .

LORRAINE HORINE, RYT-200
REGISTERED YOGA TEACHER
I started doing yoga back in 1995 with a Jane Fonda VHS tape. Over the years I did yoga at home, in studios and community centers as we moved from Ohio to NJ to Florida and back, combining it with walking, running, biking and hiking. Six years ago I became more committed to practicing yoga regularly and appreciated the deep joy and peace that I didn't get from any other activity. I wanted to find out WHY yoga felt so good, and so I began Yoga Teacher Training at the Bija Yoga School in downtown Cincinnati. (Bija is led by The Yoga Bar founder Rachel Roberts, who studied under leading teachers in Asia, Europe and India and brought the wisdom back here to her hometown). I am now RYT-200 certified and have specialized training in Yin/Mindfulness. Slow and gentle yoga has eased the pain of my herniated disk; I also appreciate the introspective aspect of yin yoga so we can, as yogi Rolf Gates says "be calm and still in action, yet vibrantly alive in stillness." I feel strongly that yoga teachers should be there to encourage individuality, make helpful suggestions and ensure safety so that the practice truly belongs to the students. I hope to help spread the wonderful feeling from the spiritual and physical therapeutic benefits of yoga.
