About Dr. Cervelli

Dr. Cervelli has a holistic, body/mind approach and works with adults who would like to be connected more deeply to their authentic Self.  Often we identify with the conditioned self, but feel a longing to know our Self more deeply. There may be a sense that the conditioned self is not the full story and we long for the depth and knowledge that realigns us to the authentic Self.  Depth psychology and mindfulness-based counseling can help to reveal more of the authentic Self and break the patterns and barriers of our conditioning.  This process can lead us to live a more enriching life with deeper interpersonal connections.
