Through the use of mindfulness based therapy interventions, loving kindness and compassion practices, expressive arts, along with western theories and interventions, I hold a safe, non-judgmental, space for healing. I draw upon a variety of psychological approaches, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Humanistic Therapy, Buddhist Psychotherapy, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Non-Violent Communication, Gottman Method, and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).
The "four limitless qualities" refers to a series of four Buddhist values and accompanying practices: love, compassion, joy and equanimity. The idea is that these qualities are always present and we have the opportunity to cultivate each one in any given moment. These are the four primary values that create the framework for my mindfulness based therapy practice. My approach is also influenced by formal studies of a wide range of psychotherapy interventions, as well as personal practice and study of mindfulness meditation, loving kindness and compassion practices.
