into a healthy personal narrative.
for complex PTSD, self-harming and addictive behaviors, and eating, mood, and personality disorders.
Prior to her career in Psychology, she taught the visual arts and piano in private schools, music conservatories

into the therapeutic process of insight and behavioral change.
Cross Modal Therapy (CMT)
- The subject areas addressed are designed to establish a strong understanding of the psychobiology within the trauma spectrum. This foundation is necessary to understand the neural mechanisms involved with developmental trauma.
- To specify and track the neurobiological impact of development trauma on healthy cognitive, emotional, and social maturation.
- To understand how developmental trauma can contribute to the etiology of psychiatric disorders involving attention deficits, self-harming, hyper arousal, anxiety and dissociation.
- To increase the understanding of complex posttraumatic stress disorder and the neurobiological changes that result from adverse childhood events.
- To identify and discuss the brain areas that may promote neural and psychological integration of this material through the Cross Modal Creative Therapies.
- To discuss how cross-modal creativity may engage the functions of the middle pre-frontal cortical processes that facilitate body regulation, emotional balance, fear modulation, empathy, and insight.
- To discuss the underlying neurobiology of the cross modal creative arts approach as it relates to the integration of body, mind, interpersonal attunement, and self- awareness.
- To present and discuss the neurobiological perspective on developmental trauma.
- To understand the neural mechanisms involved with developmental trauma cross modal creativity.
- To compare how both trauma and creativity influence the functions of the basic regulatory systems as well as those areas involved with emotional balance, body regulation, and insight.
- To propose and discuss an arts-based neurodevelopmental treatment to be integrated into any therapeutic orientation, to more effectively access unresolved, forgotten but relevant material, originating with adverse childhood events.
- To build a foundation upon which clinicians can consider and debate how an arts based cognitive therapy such as Cross-Modal Therapy can access and re-organize the imbalanced emotions, sensations, and cognitions associated with the ‘trauma response’.
