MYBody believes that each person is capable of discovering their authentic self. The use of psychotherapy, yoga therapy and evidence based alternative healing techniques, MYBody creates a space for the individual and family to find integration of mind, body and acceptance.
MYBody: Mind Yoga Body, began as an idea to address comprehensive treatment and advocate ownership for individuals or families seeking care. We wanted to create an environment of inclusivity, acceptance and compassion. MY Body was intentionally created as a place for individuals to find themselves in an authentic way, reconnect with their body to find love and compassion in the vehicle they live in, an encourage behavior change. We integrate the most effective evidence based treatment components to foster healing, while leaving space for growth of the individual.
Healing happens through the brave decision to change. Many times, one has the answers to their struggles within them, and due to addiction, maladaptive behaviors, pain, or past experiences, one has strayed from their authentic self. MYBody promotes behavior change through evidence based practices to rediscover the self.

Our Therapeutic Approach
We use a combination of techniques and theories in our practice, depending on the needs of the individual, couple or family. We most often use Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, and Cognitive Behavior Therapy, which allows for mindful identification of thoughts, emotions and behaviors to be examined, reframed, accepted or shifted through use of cognitive and behavioral changes. We educate clients on the stages of change model, and techniques that research has shown to be most effective in creating sustainable change.
We also implement mind-body techniques based on current research in neuroscience. Mind-body techniques include the practice of mindfulness, compassion training, meditation and breathing exercises. Mindfulness is the nonjudgmental awareness of what is happening currently. Mindfulness allows for those who may cruise through life on auto-pilot, or maybe suffer from the disease of being overly busy/stressed, to become enlightened to reclaim the rich and full potential of our lives in the present moment. This may mean we utilize various techniques in session together, facilitated purposefully for growth, opening, and exploring the edge of discomfort, in a safe and comfortable environment.
Real changes occur outside of the therapy sessions when you have practiced the skills and techniques you’ve learned. Therefore, you may be assigned homework or practices to be completed between sessions, such as meditations, written assignments, journaling, etc.
