Do you ever feel that your life is too busy or do you feel stressed out with the amount of things you have to do or complete? Are you experiencing worry or the feeling of being “burned out”?
Mindfulness can be a helpful practice reducing stress, anxiety and depression. Achieve your life goals through more focus and awareness. Mindfulness is practicing, in a nonjudgmental way, being in the present moment. It is being aware in the here and now – who you are, what you are doing, why you are doing it and being fully engaged in it.
It is natural to have difficulty focusing in the now. When engaged with an activity or when the mind is at rest, you may find your thoughts wandering or racing. The practice of mindfulness has the restorative power to be beneficial to your own wellness. Not only will your mental health improve, but physical and emotional benefits can follow as well.
I have been using mindfulness techniques with individuals for over 17 years. I have experience and training in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction techniques through courses within the Duke Integrative Program.
There are several core principles and techniques to achieving a sense of calm and tranquility through the practice of mindfulness. With the tools I provide you, you will pave your own course to personal well-being and find your way to wholly experiencing yourself and life at every moment.
In addition to mindfulness, I have experience and training in several other mind, body, spirit modalities of treatment, which compliment traditional psychotherapy. Yoga has been proven to effectively help reduce stress, trauma symptoms, anxiety, depression, and is useful for relapse prevention with alcohol & drug addictions.
In addition to being a psychotherapist, I’m a Registered Yoga Teacher, incorporating basic yoga poses into sessions if you feel that it would be of benefit to you. I have also been trained in Energy Psychology and as a Reiki Master.
