mindfulness

“Mindfulness is simply being aware of what is happening right now without wishing it were different; enjoying the pleasant without holding on when it changes (which it will); being with the unpleasant without fearing it will always be this way (which it won’t).”

– James Baraz”

What would it be like to develop the ability to greet all of our experiences and emotions with curiosity and friendly attention? Could doing so offer greater resilience, peace and contentment?

Both decades of research and my personal experience say, “Yes!”

Together, we may decide that you wish to incorporate evidence-based techniques from Mind-Body Medicine, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy or Positive Psychology into your treatment. When coupled with traditional approaches such as psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral and systems-oriented therapy, mindfulness can bring deep healing and growth.

Whether you are seeking relief from the discomfort of stress, anxiety or depression, looking to improve relationships, or cultivate greater contentment and well-being, mindfulness offers a pathway to reach your goals. Contact me today to begin your journey to a more aware and accepting life.
