Practicing Mindfulness as a Therapeutic Treatment
I work in tandem with my individual therapy and counseling clients to ensure that their goals are aligned with the treatment plan to create a positive, sustainable shift in their relationships. I believe that my clients are the experts in their lives, and what I provide is objective guidance for them to uncover their strengths and gifts. This enables them to live their best life.
What to Expect from Individual Therapy
Every individual that walks through my doors has their own story, and one that is unique to them. My hope is to help you untangle whatever pain or challenge that is getting in your way of living your best life NOW. You are the expert of your life and my goal is to help you find a new way of being with yourself and the world around you.
How long does therapy last?
It is your journey to a new way of being, and you get to choose when you no longer want or need therapy. You know yourself better than anyone. Many of my individual clients see me 6-12 times and then choose to see me occasionally. Others choose to see me longer; but it depends on what you are seeking to heal.
The Power of Knowledge and Choice
I use the basic tenets of mindfulness to begin the process of acceptance and awareness of your thoughts. When you begin the process of understanding that you have the power to choose what thoughts are beneficial to you, and which thoughts are just the” inner critic chatter.” You are on the road to freedom and that comes from knowing with clarity that when you respond to a thought it is because it has a benefit to you. The outcome is something that will have a positive impact in your life.
The days of endlessly second guessing yourself will slowly diminish the inner critic will no longer rule you will! You will be able to decide with clarity, who you want to be and how you want to show up in this world. Gone will be the days of shaming yourself and self-loathing, in place you will have a profound understanding of the power you possess in choosing to live your best life NOW! You get to decide no one else has the power to choose the outcome of your life.
It is a privilege and honor to walk beside my clients on their path to healing and self-discovery. This comes with finding a new way of being with yourself and the world around you.
