Message to clients

Mind-body conditions are very real, chronic and debilitating physical symptoms that develop due to stress, trauma, and other psychological causes. Breakthroughs in pain neuroscience has led to a paradigm shift in our understanding of how chronic pain develops and persists. This knowledge inspired the creation of the innovative evidence-based psychological treatment approaches that are highly effective in the reduction or elimination of pain and other stress related physical conditions.

These chronic conditions result in a cycle of pain and fear that can be incredibly debilitating in a way that is difficult to understand unless you have been there. Overtime we eliminate more and more activities that bring purpose and joy. For those struggling with pain and are considering a mind-body approach, know that I understand your struggle because I've been there. I also believe in this therapeutic approach because it helped me heal.
