Her approach focuses on how thoughts and feelings affect an individual's behavior and emotional regulation based on their genetic and environmental experiences and history.

Learning how to alter thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and utilize mindfulness stress reduction to create positive consequences can enhance an individual's self-esteem, happiness, relationships and productivity.
