Dr. Pound's primary goal is to provide patients with a broader understanding of health and a more lasting sense of well-being. Instead of traditional clinical psychology, Dr. Pound applies a patient-centered approach that addresses the whole person rather than simply their symptoms. True Nature Healing Center was developed to combine the discipline of modern clinical psychology with the wisdom of ancient healing and take advantage of the knowledge of several disciplines including: Ayurveda Therapy, Clinical Psychology, Mindfulness/CBT, Cogmed, Sandplay Therapy and Energy Therapy. What this means to the patient is that Dr. Pound works with you to develop an integrated diagnostic and therapeutic plan that will best address your mind and body as one. Dr. Pound has been in private practice for over 10 years in the San Diego area, and works primarily with families, individuals, couples, children and adolescents who are dealing with life transitions, emotional trauma, and physical and emotional pain. Dr. Pound's interest in the mind-body-spirit connection developed through a dedication to clinical psychology, yoga and meditation. Through her own inner journey of self healing and working with spiritual teachers such as: monks, mystics, yoga and meditation teachers from both India and the United States, she began to realize that the psychological pursuits alone would not lead to inner peace and happiness. Dr. Pound's mission is to view the body as in integrated whole in all its physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions and to trust the body's inherent wisdom to heal itself.
