Integral Flow, a Personal and Organizational Transformation Service Company, Officially Opens with Dedicated Offices in Houston and Sugar Land, Texas

Doctors Devine and Sarahan Formulate “Developmental” Health Consultancy Service

Co-Directors, Dr. Neal Sarahan, PhD and Dr. Tara Devine, PhD, LPC-S, LMFT-S, LCDC announced today the official formation of Integral Flow, a “developmental” personal and organizational transformation service company with one office location in Houston, Texas, and another in Sugar Land, Texas. Integral Flow provides a collaborative, strength-based, life systems approach to wellness for individuals, families, groups and human service organizations. Their unique integrated system of care offers innovative growth opportunities that emerge from personal and organizational challenges.

Formerly directors of Culture, Program Development and Therapeutic Services at the Monarch Institute for Neurological Difference, doctors Tara Devine and Neal Sarahan formulated Integral Flow with the intention to offer their unique coordinated care to a more diverse economic and organizational demographic. With more than 60 combined years of experience and integrated practice in human services, their approach leads clients toward educational, social, cultural and organizational successes.

“We are very excited about this new formation,” states Dr. Sarahan. “Our new service locations enable us to offer our expertise in empowering individuals and families who are navigating the complexities of neurological differences and transition challenges. In addition, we have expanded the benefits of our approach nationally to companies seeking to energize their organization’s vision, and to start-ups desiring to craft integrated, leading-edge service programs.”

Integral Flow’s philosophical stance to learning and growth opportunities is based on Social Construction, Collaborative Therapy, Appreciative Inquiry and Interactive Value Creation. Sarahan’s and Devine’s proprietary process highlights co-designing “strength and stretch-growth maps” and action plans that support transformation. This approach acknowledges clients as architects and co-constructors of their own growth and change. Their intention is to impact whole care systems that bring out the best and highest capacity in the individual, family and organization and further affect growth, resilience and positive change in each.

“Individuals, as well as organizations, are inclined toward adapting and flourishing,” states Dr. Devine. “Too often when pursuing change, brokenness, diagnosis and pathology are the main focus. Our system moves beyond remedial, problem solving models. We successfully discover the enabling conditions that assist our clients to face each day with meaning and purpose.”

Dr. Sarahan holds a PhD in Applied Developmental Psychology, a MA in Early Childhood and a BA in Urban Government. He started and oversaw residential communities at the Brookwood Community and the Monarch Institute. He has been program director for educational settings, launched school-based businesses and initiated and operated a series of transitional living programs. Dr. Sarahan is previous Executive Director of the Monarch Institute for Neurological Differences and its first Director of Culture. He now serves as Board Secretary of National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI) Greater Houston as well as on the Board of the Isensee Foundation for Safe Police Response. He helped organize Houston Heifer International Volunteers, is an active Cosanti Foundation alumnus, a past faculty member at Antioch University, a current Associate in the Taos Institute, a contributor to Reclaiming Youth and ADDitude journals and a frequent presenter on issues of neurological differences, executive functions and relationship development.

Dr. Devine holds a Ph.D. in Human Development, a MA in Marriage and Family Therapy, MA in Human Development and a BS in Psychology. As a licensed clinical therapist, family therapist and supervisor, Dr. Devine has practiced as a therapist in hospital, residential and school settings. She is previous Director of Clinical Services for a large residential program for children, adolescents and young adults and founder of Resilience, Inc., a licensed non-profit mental health and substance abuse agency for children and families historically underserved. Dr. Devine served as Director of Therapeutic Services at The Monarch Institute for Neurological Differences and has trained and supervised graduate and postgraduate level interns for 25 years. She currently is an Associate in the Taos Institute and a board member of Tapestry of Hope.
