Mindfulness is a scientific proven method for bringing more calmness, focus, patience and improvement to your relationships. I use mindfulness in my every day counseling practice with individuals and couples. In addition, I offer workshops on mindfulness for police, teachers and educators, parents, and health care providers.
I ground myself in the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn and Daniel Siegel. They have impacted my work tremendously and I’m very happy to offer clients an approach to counseling and therapy which tends to the mind, body, and soul.
I hold an Introduction to Mindfulness Workshop that presents the scientific principles behind, and the benefits of mindfulness, as well as beginning techniques that you can use immediately to reduce your stress and improve your focus and awareness.
When: 2nd Saturday of each month. 10-12:00pm
