Health and Wellness

My approach to health and wellness incorporates psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, somatic and mindfulness-based therapies. Together these methods lead to a deeper understanding of the mind/body connection. They foster self-awareness, and increase self-esteem and confidence.

Mind/body techniques include listening to the body and breath; slowing down to increase awareness of sensation; paying attention to both our physical and psychological edge; understanding repetitive patterns of physical activity or inactivity; and using this knowledge to strengthen our relationship patterns and our core sense of self. Integrating mind/body techniques helps to soothe and heal both physical and psychological pain and promotes health and wellness.
