Alana Hammer is a Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist. She is nationally certified as a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine (Dipl.OM). Alana is also licensed as an Acupuncturist in the state of California where she practiced acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine as a primary care provider. Her passion for healing through traditional Chinese medicine ignited during a six-month sabbatical through South East Asia. The Orient and its traditions, representing a complete system of medicine, have long fascinated Alana. At the root of all these traditions is the idea that health is a reflection of a balanced life–that our true purpose is to go beyond mere physical health to achieve harmony between body, mind and spirit.

Alana earned her Masters of Science degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACTCM) in San Francisco. Prior to this, she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at the University of Colorado. Alana has done extensive post-graduate work in women’s health and obstetrics through seminars, workshops and internships. Additionally, her practice focuses on internal medicine and pain management.

Jodi A. Brin is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who enjoys working with children, adolescents, and adults. Her therapeutic style is best described as integrative, utilizing the framework that she sees as most helpful to each individual, couple, or family that she works with. She has been trained in a variety of therapy modalities, including play therapy, behavior modification, cognitive behavioral therapy, supportive therapy, and psychodynamic therapy. She has worked with clients and various clinical issues, including depression, anxiety, trauma, behavioral issues, ADHD, and grief and loss. Dr. Brin has a wonderful ability to connect and empathize with clients, allowing her to use the therapeutic relationship to help her clients move in a positive, healing direction.

Dr. Brin believes that grief and loss experiences greatly affect all of our lives; whether it be a death of a loved one, loss of a pet, separation, divorce, loss of job, a move to a new house, a child moving to college, loss/change in health, etc. Dr. Brin believes that internalized, suppressed grief often leads to physical and mental health issues. After experiencing her own grief and loss, Br. Brin became increasingly aware of the vast and conflicting emotions associated with grief and was intrigued by the verbal and nonverbal messages she received from others in response to her loss. Looking to explore this further, she found The Grief Recovery Institute and Participated in The Grief Recovery Method® Certification Program. As a certified grief recovery specialist, Dr. Brin helps to provide a safe, supportive environment in which the client can explore old beliefs about dealing with loss, identify what losses have effected one’s life, and help the client to take the steps necessary to complete the pain associated with those losses and move forward. In addition to helping adults, Dr. Brin helps grieving children to understand and express their feelings regarding their loss and helps the parent/ caregiver learn how to best support the child.

Dr. Brin also has a very special interest in psychological oncology. A member of the American Psychological Oncology Association, Dr. Brin works to treat the social, psychological, emotional, spiritual, and quality-of-life issues associated with cancer. Dr. Brin helps the client from the time of diagnosis, during treatment and survivorship, and through end of life issues and bereavement.

Dr. Brin earned her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Michigan State University, and her master’s and doctorate degrees from Illinois School of Professional Psychology in Chicago. She is trained in play therapy, EMDR I and II, and is a certified Grief and Loss Specialist. Dr. Brin is a member of the American Psychological Association and the American Psychosocial Oncology Association.

DR. Negrette is a board certified integrative holistic psychiatrist. Her path to integrative psychiatry began during her residency when she realized that her training in allopathic medicine and treatments was limited in its ability to heal. A close mentor and friend introduced her to holistic approaches in the treatment and maintenance of mental wellness and since then she has been incorporating creativity, movement therapies and psychotherapeutic modalities to heal her patients. As Dr. Negrette is trained and board certified in allopathic psychiatric treatments she understands that traditional medicines may be indicated as part of a person’s treatment plan however she prefers to limit their use, understanding that the body can be, and is, its own healer.

Dr. Negrette is passionate about working with people to reach their full potentials and helping others find their own paths and reconnect to their mental, physical and spiritual selves. In order to fully reconnect with one’s self Dr. Negrette utilizes an integrative approach; healing the mind through creative processes, mindfulness techniques, walk and talk therapy as well as judicious use of pharmacotherapy.

Carl Jung once stated, “Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”

Nicole L. Bickham, PhD, LMT, is a psychotherapist with a passion for body-mind healing. Her therapeutic style is collaborative, engaging, and integrative. Nicole operates from the belief that we begin life in a state of wholeness, and are innately oriented toward growth, but inevitably encounter experiences such as physical or emotional stress or trauma, or simply not getting our needs adequately met, that divert the natural process of development. While our human adaptability affords us ways of coping with these circumstances that work for us initially, these strategies may become restrictive later, limiting our growth and resulting in tension and anxiety, a sense of not “showing up” fully in one’s life and relationships, and mood difficulties.

Outdated patterns of thinking, behaving, and relating often occur automatically, below the level of conscious awareness, making them particularly challenging to access with traditional talk-based therapeutic approaches. The body-based, experiential techniques she incorporates are uniquely suited to accessing the “stories” held in the body so that challenging patterns can unfold and shift. She views her role as one of creating supportive and accepting space in which clients can cultivate inner resilience, rediscover their innate wholeness, and restore a sense of clarity and purpose.

Nicole received a doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Syracuse University in 2002 and later studied somatic therapy, bodywork, and inner awareness practices. She is a member of the American Psychological Association and is a Wisconsin licensed Bodywork Therapist.
