My style of counseling draws on interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB) which uses clinical evidence that supports continuous brain growth as its foundation. To make positive changes, we can start by looking at ourselves. You’ll be able to discuss what’s present for you and I’ll accept and support you without judgment. I approach counseling with a holistic perspective that focuses on the interconnectedness of body, mind, and spirit. Rather than labeling old patterns as pathologies, I prefer to recognize them as coping strategies. Therapy should offer a safe container in which to explore old patterns and experiment with new ones.
