Introducing Dr. Yael Gold

Hello my name is Dr. Yael Gold. I am a licensed psychologist who has been living and working in Wilmington, NC for the past 22 years. Also, I am proud to have been affiliated with Integrated Therapy Associates (ITA) since its formation 10 years ago and I’m thrilled that we’re starting this blog. Let me tell you a little about myself.

I consider myself to be very fortunate in that I find my work as a psychotherapist to be both extremely fulfilling and endlessly rewarding. In fact I often wonder whether I chose this field or whether it chose me! Day in and day out I am deeply moved by the courage of the clients I serve and by the tenacity and resilience of the human spirit. As the daughter of a Holocaust survivor, I have witnessed firsthand, through my mother, what it means to rise above our own circumstances in order to do good in the world. At age 85, my mother, who is a retired therapist in her own right, continues to find ways to help others. She currently volunteers at a soup kitchen in New York City where she helps to feed those in need of a hot meal.

As for me, I am dedicated to a lifelong process of expanding my knowledge of the factors that promote growth, wholeness, well being, and a sense of meaning in our lives. Likewise, to the extent that we find ourselves facing obstacles based on past experiences, I do my best to help my clients overcome anything that might be blocking them from reaching their full potential. I believe that we’re each a tapestry woven from our experiences across our life time, our unique dispositions, and the ways in which we’ve attempted to make sense of these experiences. I also believe that the true self emerges as we sort through and heal from our past difficulties.

As a therapist and in my new role as a blogger, I am committed to staying engaged in my own growth process throughout my own lifetime. As I’m made aware of new and exciting developments in the field of psychology and beyond, I am passionate about passing them on to my therapy clients as well as to a broader audience, to you the readers of this blog. I hope that my contributions to healing insights are helpful to you wherever you might be on your own personal journey. Here’s to your wellbeing!

Intro and Welcome

Welcome to “Healing Insights”, Integrated Therapy Associates’ new blog! We look forward to having this new vehicle for communicating with you. We are a holistically oriented group of six practitioners in private practice all providing services under one roof. Currently we’re comprised of five psychotherapists and a registered dietician. Our intention for this blog is to focus our posts on topics related to the integration of the mind, body, and emotions as this pertains to mental health and emotional healing. At times we may also focus on the role of spirituality. We’ll  start with an introduction by each of our practitioners so you can get a better idea of who we are as individuals. New posts will appear about once every two weeks. We hope that you’ll find our posts to be informative, thought provoking, and inspiring!
