COASTAL THERAPY WELCOMES YOU
Every one of us possesses an internal core of resilience, strength and determination. My goal in treatment is to help individuals to recognize, embrace, and utilize these attributes to navigate the challenges they face and to achieve peak emotional fitness.
Emotional fitness is a state in which the mind is capable of staying away from negative thoughts and, therefore, can focus on creative and constructive tasks. Therapy must focus on and nurture our mind, body and soul to achieve the totality of emotional fitness. This is the focus of my treatment.
To achieve this, I integrate evidence based practices, including CBT, DBT and Positive Psychology, with Mindfulness and Movement in sessions that take place via telehealth and in various settings in nature.
