The humans supporting you
Jenna Sholl, M.A. LMFT, CCTP
Co-Founder and Clinical Director
I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist committed to helping people recover from developmental and relationship trauma. After over a decade of experience in the field of psychotherapy and trauma recovery, I am honored to gain the trust of my patients while I guide them through research backed treatments.
My work is rooted in psychodynamic psychotherapy and incorporates interpersonal neurobiology. My aim is to navigate towards rapid symptom relief and long-lasting change. I believe in an integrative approach for the treatment of traumatic stress, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, sleep difficulties and more. I provide culturally responsive, patient-driven and compassionate care.
I have served communities across the US in foster care management, schools, residential treatment facilities, nonprofits servicing those experiencing homelessness and addiction and outpatient clinics. I am a Level I Certified Clinical Trauma Professional and practice as a certified Neurofeedback provider through the Trauma Research Foundation. I have presented to the Counseling Psychology graduate students at Santa Clara University and served on the Board of Directors at the Silicon Valley Chapter of CAMFT.
My love for soccer, Boston and exploring the Bay Area with my family keeps me busy as well!
Rachel Carson, M.A. LMFT, CCTP
Co-Founder and Director of Operations
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist focused on helping my patients find true, lasting healing from the impacts of trauma and painful experiences. It is a privilege to sit with my patients in both the wounds of the past and the potential for the future. I have received extensive training in the field of trauma recovery and after my years in the chair, I firmly believe that with the right conditions, anyone can experience healing.
The foundation of my work incorporates psychodynamic psychotherapy, somatic awareness, interpersonal neurobiology, and trauma-informed care. My goal is to help guide patients towards relief and hope, to understand old patterns and create new ones, and to increase mind-body awareness to be able to life more fully. I seek to create relationships with patients built on trust, honesty, and an invitation into awareness. I believe our mind, body, and soul occupy the same space and require integrative treatment to alleviate unwanted symptoms, create long-lasting change, and find reconciliation with ourselves and our experiences.
I have a history of providing treatment in private practice, school-based therapy, and community clinic settings. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP I) and maintain ongoing education in the latest trauma-informed research and treatment. Prior to becoming an LMFT, I worked in high-tech startups as well as the sports physiology, nutrition and wellness industry.
I was born and raised in the Bay Area and you can usually find me with my husband, family, ukulele, or hiking in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
Janae Stewart, M.A. AMFT
Clinician, Supervised by Jenna Sholl
I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist and my mission is to help clients find healing through compassion and empathy in an environment where they can be themselves. I’ve worked in eating disorder treatment, sexual assault and domestic violence, and trauma recovery. I am passionate about helping people find liberation and healing in body, mind and spirit. I am also a 200-hr registered yoga teacher.
My work is centered in a psychodynamic lens, incorporating principles from systems frameworks and positive-psychology. I believe in a strength based approach in that our symptoms were once strengths that helped us survive. Our work is to acknowledge the ways that it has served us while learning to renew our relationships with ourselves, others, and the world around us.
I’ve worked extensively in the community across various settings including residential treatment, PHP and IOP programs, non-profit outpatient clinics, school based counseling, and juvenile hall. I’m always striving to continue my training in trauma-informed care in order to provide the highest quality care to my clients.
I’m a bay-area native and in my free time, you can find me at the pottery studio, rock climbing, reading, or exploring the world with my husband.
Alysse Caraballo, M.A. AMFT, BCN, R. EEG T. & Care Coordinator
Clinician, Supervised by Jenna Sholl
I am a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist and my goal is to help clients navigate the ebbs and flows of everyday life. I have experience working with trauma, anxiety and depression and neurodivergent populations. I value the importance of looking at the person holistically and tailoring the therapy to meet each client’s individual needs in order to fulfill their potential and maximize their well-being.
I believe that the foundation to effective therapy is in the development of the relationship between the therapist and the patient. My work is grounded in a philosophy of non-judgement and acceptance; meeting the client where they are as they examine their views of themselves, relationships, and their outlook on the future. My interest in the mind-body connection is influenced by my work with biofeedback/neurofeedback and neurology. By using somatic and psychophysiological approaches, I help clients to increase brain-body awareness, enhance self-regulation skills, manage stress and build resilience.
I have served communities in the Bay Area in schools, as well as psychiatric, hospital and outpatient clinics. I have served on the Pre-Licensed Committee of CAMFT. I am also board certified in neurofeedback by the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance.
I enjoy traveling with my husband, game nights and spending time with my dog.
What Brought us here
How Cura Integrative Health Came to Life
Our name comes from the latin phrase cura personalis which means “care for the person.” At Cura Integrative Health, our treatment promotes balance for your whole being so that you may life a full and satisfying life.
After working in solo private practice and other settings solely focused on psychotherapy, Jenna and Rachel launched Cura Integrative Health to honor their shared vision of a holistic treatment center that offered more than just psychotherapy. We recognized the power of psychotherapy, but wanted to provide our patients with more treatment possibilities and opportunities for insight and change than talk therapy alone.
Jenna and Rachel quickly realized it was time to join forces and make our shared vision a reality. The mission that guides us and the integrative approach that we wholeheartedly believe in are the outcomes of this mutual dream to do more for our patients.
