Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Howard Wax "The key elements of interpersonal neuro-biology are the distinction between connection and attachment. The foundation of my practice is utilizing my experience in somatic therapy and my development of a deep relationship with my patients. I continue to work in trauma utilizing the "new science" of both mindfulness and attachment. My patients receive "cutting edge" treatment. I believe in integrating eastern disciplines in the therapeutic milieu."
