My Approach to Therapy
My main approach to therapy is through the lens of Interpersonal Neurobiology and I am a fond student of the work of Dr. Daniel Siegel MD. Mindsight and Mindfulness are an integral part of the work I do and several of my therapy sessions will begin or end with a mindfulness practice, where we will get to practice taking a non-judgmental stance and breathing.
“Your safety in our space and time together is the most important goal in treatment.”
I am also trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) skills working with adolescents, families, and adults. DBT has so much relevance with interpersonal neurobiology and the importance of understanding our brain and working with our brain’s chemistry. Skills building with the importance of validation and mindfulness is an important part of the work we do as we integrate and make sense of our lives.
“You are unique, your treatment is unique to your experience.”
The connection between our mind, body and soul, I believe is key to our mental well-being. Through the training with Somatic Experiencing and my interest in Yoga as a mindfulness practice, I will help bring awareness to the many layers of your body’s experiences while working with you. Don’t be surprised if we do some tree poses together! Attention to our bodies will bring us more to live within our bodies and fully appreciate the capabilities of our bodies.
“Your treatment includes the whole person – your heart, your soul, your body and your mind all work together for your healing.”
