I am a family therapist devoted to healing the wounds of social and historical traumatic stress and Fostering resilience. I am Committed to training culturally responsive and globally Informed MFT practitioners to serve the unique needs of diverse communities, Both locally and Internationally. As an educator, I Believe That education is a drawing out, not a putting in. Knowledge is not simply Transmitted from the teacher to students, but is Actively constructed in the mind of the learner through dialogue, reflection and various hands-on activities. I Believe That Make Their students Their Own Ideas by constructing knowledge structures, and That They Learn by Integrating new information from Their Own life experience.

Combine this with some serious cognitive therapy and you are GOOD TO GO! It will take a while but this is THE most effective combination. Exercize is good too, as you already know
