Dr. Fuller integrates advances in neuroscience, family therapy, and compassion in creating a personalized treatment plan for each client. Therapy is highly individualized for the unique person, couple and situation. Therapy with Dr. Fuller will focus on growth in developing four points of balance: a solid flexible self, calm heart and quiet mind, grounded responding and meaningful endurance.
Dr. Fuller’s patients describe her as warm, easy to talk to and a great listener, but also as one who “tells it like it is” in a direct compassionate style.
The science of the mind and relationships has advanced to where we now know what is most effective in helping clients and couples achieve real and lasting change. Dr. Fuller utilzes state-of-the-art, evidenced-based practices and techniques to help her patients reach their goals, grow as individuals and discover deeper peace, joy, and meaning in life.
Dr. Fuller is a differentiation-based systemic therapist relying heavily upon the Sexual Crucible approach to therapy developed by Dr. David Schnarch. This approach emphasizes each persons willingness to grow and potential to relate to themselves and others in more honest and compassionate ways.
Exciting advances in neuroscience demonstrate the brain’s ability to change and create more inner-peace, contentment, and confidence.
Integrated within a relational model, Dr. Fuller uses a variety of techniques from interpersonal neurobiology and mind-mapping to relaxation, mindfulness, and awareness techniques to take advantage of the brain’s innate resiliency.
We were created for connection. Usually both our darkest and most joyful moments involve those who are closest to us.
Our partners, family, and friends can provide us with support and warmth, but these relationships also bring pain, isolation, anxiety, and even desperation at times. The emotional aspects of well-being are essential to both healthy relationships and personal growth.
In couples or family therapy, Dr. Fuller will facilitate a healing process where these important connections can be restored and strengthened by helping individuals grow as a person in front of their loved one.
Our bodies bear the burden of the stress we experience in life. It is not uncommon to be completely disconnected from how our bodies respond to the challenges we face. Finding ways to connect more fully to our bodies provides an avenue to increase awareness, making therapy not only more experiential but also more effective.
Dr. Fuller uses somatic experiences when working with trauma or loss with Somatic EMDR or Natural Processing. By integrating awareness of body sensations, clients are able to integrate and be more connected to themself and others.
Not all therapists will address spiritual issues within the therapeutic setting. Dr. Fuller believes fully in the strength and resilience found in the faith and beliefs of her clients.
When appropriate, Dr. Fuller will integrate spiritual concepts into the healing process, based on the self-disclosed beliefs of the client.
