I am trained and have experience in a variety of specialty areas, including incorporating mindfulness practice into therapy.
Mindfulness involves paying attention in the present moment, intentionally and without judgment. It is practiced through the observation and acceptance of your thoughts, emotions, and sensations. Mindfulness practice is about being willing to notice where your thoughts, emotions, and sensations take you, and then bringing your attention back to the present. (In part from ptsd.va.gov)
Particularly over the past decade, mindfulness has worked its way into the world of mental health because of its benefits to cognition and mental well-being (therapistaid.com). Mindfulness techniques in therapy can be useful for people who want to increase their self-awareness, compassion (toward themselves and others), and satisfaction in their lives.
While I employ an array of therapeutic modalities, I also seek to mindfully meet my clients where they are at in the present, helping them explore their unresolved issues and/or barriers to thriving in their lives.
