About CMI

Critical Memory Integration (CMI) is a neuro-clinical system that utilizes therapist skill alongside client experience to integrate critical memories and recondition the nervous system through the science of learning and memory reconsolidation.

Core Values of CMI

Critical Memory Integration, or CMI, is based on a carefully crafted set of Core Values which have guided the creation of this new therapeutic system. We believe these values will resonate with change makers in the mental health community and inspire those to join us on the leading edge of mental health care. Together we can renew a focus on mental wellness and see lives rebuilt and restored.


We recognize each individual as having a unique matrix of experience.

We recognize symptoms as adaptive responses with a physiological explanation.

We reflect a belief that challenges in the human experience are normative and adaptive, not pathological.

The brain is an adaptive collaborative system of hubs managed by neural networks.

The brain can be rewired to increase healthy adaptation by enhancing an individual’s interoceptive awareness and emotional fluidity.
