Often our minds can have a mind of their own and create more chaos than calm. I provide guidance and counseling to individuals struggling with stress, anxiety and worry. I have been a licensed clinical social worker for over 30 years and have worked with teens, young adults, aging adults, and families. I believe in helping individuals find calm within the chaos; knowing that chaos is often of our own creation. I help to re-channel the critical mind, ruminations, and worry in order to persevere through the activating events. And, I help individuals to tune into mind-body connections in order to respond mindfully, instead of reactively (knee jerk reactions). Using a mindfulness-based approach, I guide individuals in strengthening their own internal resources by helping individuals to learn to live more fully in the present moment and have a greater capacity for self compassion.
In sessions, we focus on your presenting concern through a mindfulness lens in learning how to
(1) have a different relationship with stress, anxiety, and worry,
(2) decrease suffering,
(3) increase self compassion,
(3) increase overall wellbeing, and
(4) decrease tension and distractions.
Simultaneously, we are seeking to strengthen your inner well-being, presence, and balance. Mindfulness is about learning to be present and awake to all the moments of our life.
