At neurOasis, we strongly believe that we are in the business of treating people and not simply their disease.
Mindful psychotherapy, led by Terrence Sullivan, LCSW, is an integral piece of our belief in treating the whole person and their illness. This requires an openess by both patient and therapist to new ways of experiencing reality that is centered in "being" rather than in "doing". There is an understanding developed that the mind and body are not separate entities, but rather intricately connected with a complicated feedback mechanism. Although we are not our thoughts, they can set in motion physiological processes that cause the body physical pain.
This is particularly true for anyone with a history of childhood abuse of any sort, sexual, physical, emotional, abandonment and others. An abundance of research indicates that there is a strong connection between childhood abuse and chronic pain as an adult. This MUST be addressed in order to truly find relief. We are here to help guide you through the process
The work you will do with Terrence Sullivan is not premised on reaching a desired outcome but rather, in fully savoring each moment and using the deeper understanding developed to foster new insights and strengths. The result is an enhanced ability to live life more satisfactorily and fully, regardless of one's level of pain or perceived disability.
You will learn techniques such as meditation, breathing exercises and a unique form of therapy called EMDR training as you embark on your journey through mindfulness and learning to harness the power of your own mind and brain to control your pain and live a happy and content life.
