Bio: John Monopoli, PhD

Dr. John Monopoli, a clinical psychologist for 33 years, treats individuals using a combination of Mindfulness psychotherapy, meditation, hypnotherapy and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy.

He believes that a skillful clinician will draw from a variety of therapeutic orientations and philosophies. In this spirit, he has employed both eastern and western models of mindfulness in his therapeutic work. He writes that these models not only complement each other but broaden each other and widen the scope of possible therapeutic techniques and approaches.

Dr. Monopoli maintains that the therapeutic use of meditation is by far the most valuable "tool" with which a client can gradually learn not only to self regulate but also to access previously neglected inner resources and strengths. He sees a client?s strengths serving as a "fulcrum" for the remediation of difficulties and challenges.
