Dr. 1Drea is founder of the holistic health company and media platform, In8Vitality, which integrates ancient wisdom with modern neuroscience and conscious media. With over two decades of medical practice specialized in trauma recovery, addiction medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture, Dr. 1Drea has provided medical services, workshops and retreats to help thousands of people build resilience, reclaim vitality after burnout, recover from Adverse Childhood Experiences and nurture real self love in order to thrive in all areas of life.
After years of running a successful Intensive Outpatient Program for binge eating disorder, Dr. 1Drea developed The Cornerstone Process, a proven bio-psycho-social-spiritual model for healing trauma and facilitating conscious evolution, which has been taught around the world. This 5-step holistic framework provides a process for self-guided or group-led recovery from developmental and intergenerational trauma and adverse childhood experiences. It serves as the foundation for building resilience, and integrating insights gleaned from sacred ceremonies, psychotherapy and personal development work.
The Cornerstone Process is used in Dr. 1Drea’s Psychedelic Assisted Therapy preparation and integration programs, which she offers in person and online in PRISM Sessions, along with her signature LifeWriting program which empowers you to heal your inner child, reprogram your subconscious mind, transform from victim to hero, and rewrite your life story.
As a sought-after media personality for over twenty years, Dr. 1Drea has shared her empowering wellness advice on the Oprah Winfrey Show, the Dr. Oz Show, iTV This Morning, CNN, the Today Show, LUXE-TV, Thrive Global and HuffingtonPost and as a news anchor for Discovery Health Channel. She is also a featured teacher on the Insight Timer app.
Dr. 1Drea’s most recent TEDx explores the winding path she took to escape depression and arrive at unconditional self-acceptance, featuring her performance of an original song, “I Love You, Me”. As shared in her first inspiring TEDx talk entitled 'Become Who You Really Are', 1Drea candidly explains that overcoming a long history of hidden depression and anxiety came via an out-of-body near death-like experience which allowed her to break free to love and express her authentic self.
