Reality Attunement Therapy draws from several classical theories including Cognitive Behavioral, Rational Emotive, Client-Centered, Existential and Gestalt approaches. These theories are informed by Buddhist Psychology and mindfulness training. The foundation for successful work together requires the creation of a safe, supported therapeutic environment conducive to the flourishing of a natural sense of curiosity. Mike works with clients to move beyond dualistic thinking, entrenched conditioning and habitual reactions. By connecting with a felt sense of what is, clients begin to open to new ways of relating to their experience. In feeling supported and safe to explore, we work to examine existential questions with which we all wrestle as human beings. We come to experientially realize what it means to be alive.
