About Me

I’m Christine McDevitt, an integrative health practitioner specializing in helping people with physical or emotional health issues who aren’t satisfied with the outcomes they’ve gotten using conventional care.

I spent over 20 years as an occupational therapist providing rehab to people living with serious illnesses, injuries, and the aftermath of traumatic life events.

Too often, I’d see clients get stuck at some point in their healing process even though they were doing everything their providers told them to do.

For some, stuck was physical (e.g., unexplained chronic symptoms). For others, it was mental (e.g., wanting to change but unable to break unhealthy patterns) or emotional (e.g., unable to let go of fear or resentment).

For many of those clients, traditional medical care and/or counseling wasn’t enough to get them over the hump, and they continued to suffer.

When I had my own health crisis, I experienced stuck firsthand. All the medical tests were normal, and recommended treatments had little to no effect. Even my years of neuroscience education and arsenal of therapy tricks didn’t bring lasting relief.

This experience led to a search for a better solution, and I trained in the powerful, evidence-based methods I now use with my clients. These tools effectively address underlying issues that can affect the ability to heal physically and emotionally – and I’d love to share them with you.

I see my role as that of a consultant and guide and believe the body-mind has an amazing capacity to heal itself under the right conditions.

The combination of evidence-based complementary health methods, lifestyle changes, and conventional medical/psychological care when needed tends to set the best stage for those conditions to emerge.

My practice is based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and I work virtually with clients from across the country and around the world.
