As a psychotherapist, my practice goal is to assist patients in connecting with their inner wisdom, cultivating mindful awareness, developing compassionate courage, and experiencing the empowerment they need to move through life with grace, ease, intent, and vitality. An essential part of my clinical and research work is to understand how the brain and body are connected and to promote personal healing and integration at all levels: social, physical, mental, and spiritual.
I focus on assisting individuals in becoming aware of their inner strengths and wisdom while processing difficult emotions and situations. We achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to their concerns, and customizing a treatment plan that uses psychodynamic approaches and traditional variations of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). These CBT variations involve mindfulness, compassion, and acceptance.
Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) has developed from evolutionary, neurological and psychological science. It is a third wave CBT therapy emphasizing issues such as mindfulness, emotions, acceptance, the relationship, values, goals, and meta‐cognition. Although rooted in modern science, CFT also draws on Buddhist philosophy. CFT is useful for overcoming distress, trauma, depression, anxiety, eating difficulties, pain, and psychosis.
