attends to patterns of thought, feeling, behavior, and family system,
tailors treatment to match a client’s unique needs
uses the most effective tools from a variety of approaches while being rooted in a therapeutic theory.
Lavina primarily leans toward a strengths-based and existential/ontological approach integrating mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, and other complementary methodologies. She has a special interest in continuing education related to neuropsychology, trauma, resiliency mindsets, and the connection between food and mood.
