I am committed to an holistic body-mind-spirit approach to healing and wellness. As a Board Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse I incorporate a collaborative and comprehensive approach to the complexity of mental health problems. The compelling neuroscience of developmental attachment and neuroplasticity informs my work and is the focal point of our therapeutic process together. One's capacity to tolerate connection and the attachment style that is encoded in our very being determines our ability to create and maintain intimate relationship. In addition how our brain is 'wired' is governed by physical, energetic and emotional experiences from conception through early childhood. Neuroplasticity is the brains capacity to rewire itself with specific therapeutic interventions, thus reversing outmoded neural networks reponsible for distress and self-defeating behavioral manisfestations. It is widely accepted that disruptions in early attachment along with neurological wiring is a major contributor to the development of mental, emotional and physical illness.
I have specialized in two psychotherapy methods that are based on this research and are believed to rewire 'frozen' neural pathways that drive unhealthy behaviors and create emotional and physical distress and illness.
I am a Certified CIMBS Practitioner (Complex Integration of Multiple Brain Systems). Please review CIMBS at complexintegrationmbs.com for more information.
Another neuroplasticity-focused modality I provide is Lifespan Integration which you may review at lifespanintegration.com.
