Mind-Body Connection 


My approach is Humanistic, YOU are the expert in your story.

I am also Existential, examining the meaning and purpose of life including the journey through suffering- the human condition.

I practice Strength- Based Therapy, understanding one's core beliefs then bridge the gap between where you are today and your best self.

I utilize evidenced-based therapies: Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Somatic Experiencing.

I incorporate brain-based therapy and Practical Neuroscience to improve attachment, emotional regulation, and distress tolerance, including mindful practices.
