While her work is informed by many different “traditional” therapeutic modalities, Jasmine infuses many clinically validated Eastern practices into her therapy.
Recently, she described her style as, “…integrative in that I pull heavily from psychodynamic and analytic theories in order to inform what I call ‘soul work:’ that incredibly courageous, but difficult work of honestly examining the sides of life that we instinctively hide or run from.”
In addition to her formal academic training, Jasmine has been trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). She also leads groups on mindfulness, emotional acceptance, values exploration, and self-esteem.
