Personal statement: Modern Minds has a 360-degree view of the individual and well-being, recognizing and prioritizing both the mind and body.  Modern Minds addresses the challenges of modern human living (i.e., over-doubting, over-thinking, over-sitting, under-valuing) which stem largely from the disconnect or fragmentation in our lives. The science of change clearly demonstrates that successfully connecting with ourselves, our values, and our lives also involves connecting with our bodies. This refreshing and long overdue perspective enables clients to pursue meaningful and sustainable change in their lives.  My profession is more of a life pursuit than a job, and the mission of Modern Minds to not only reduce suffering but moreover to actualize well-being is also my personal life mission.
