Isaac Farin, M.S., LMFT, a doctoral student in the Department of Family Therapy (DFT) in NSU’s School of Humanities and Social Sciences (SHSS) uses his concept of “Longboard Therapy,” developed with Jonathan Strauss, the founder of the International Distance Skateboard Association, to provide an additional dimension to his Solution Informed Mindfulness Therapy (SIMT). Farin has found that the use of Longboard Therapy assists clients in stress reduction and increases awareness, concentration and confidence. Farin and Longboard Therapy have been featured in The Miami Herald, on WSVN Channel 7 News and, most recently, in Redbook Magazine, see: http://www.redbookmag.com/health-wellness/advice/new-therapies#slide-3
Prior to entering the doctoral program in DFT, Farin received his M.S. in Counseling with dual specializations in MFT and in Mental Health from Barry University. He is a licensed marriage and family therapist with a private practice in North Miami Beach.
