Love Netflix or video learning? The short series The Mind, Explained on Netflix offers a concise understanding of how the mind and body operate under stress and the function of anxiety among other lessons on mental health

I use an integrative approach of different types of therapy: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), EMDR, Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing (MI). If you'd like to learn more about these check them out on Psychology Today.

Mindfulness is one of the most popular and scientifically backed practices to decrease stress, improve self-awareness and focus on the present. Check out www.mindful.org for more information.
