I use an integrative, whole-person approach in my practice. I believe that at the most fundamental level, our psychology and our physiology are inextricably linked, thus it is essential that the incorporation of somatic practices and body-oriented interventions be essential pieces to integrative mental health.
I practice mind-body techniques such as hypnotherapy, meditation, bio-feedback and mindfulness based skills. I stay current with research on psycho-neuroimmunology, neuroscience and evidence-based complementary therapies. I have conducted my own research in the healing benefits of yoga and mental health, as well as the benefits of breath-work, movement, dance, acupuncture and trance-work.
My dissertation is focused on people who have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Learning Disabilities (LD) and how this population experiences body awareness and the perception of time passing. By integrating these fields, I can teach the basic benefits of slowing down and feeling fully into each moment.
