I am passionate about helping individuals, families and society to achieve the goal of happiness. The benefits are far beyond merely "feeling good". Happiness leads to increased success at finding a partner, healthier marriage, stronger relationships, better physical and mental health, and a long life (up to ten years longer!). Happiness is an achievable goal, something we can deliberately cultivate through practice and effort much like any other skill. Would you like to learn some tools to train your or your children's mind?
I integrate Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Mindfulness (such as meditation or yoga), Body-Mind awareness tools, Art as a healing tool, body movement, play therapy, embodied art, interpersonal neurobiology, and Nonviolent Parenting (an empathy-lead approach) to help you, your children and family:
Heal from trauma, better manage stress; deal with emotions like anger, fear and sadness; develop clear and compassionate communication; improve attention or concentration; cope with painful life events; reduce chronic physical pain; cultivate tools to move from reactivity to receptivity; reduce addictive behaviors; enhance positive emotions; and increase interpersonal skills.
