Mindfulness meditation, which stems from Buddhism, is a well researched and easy-to-learn set of coping skills. Mindfulness has been shown to help decrease chronic stress, relapses in depression, reduce anxiety and panic disorder, and suicidal behavior. Mindfulness is also very effective for reducing chronic pain as well as emotional reactivity and impulsivity found in addictive disorders.
I draw from the many skills and insights of Mindfulness Based Psychotherapy with the goal of helping you achieve both immediate symptom relief and long-term healing. Depending on your specific goal, I will teach you the principles of mindfulness meditation, its application to daily life as well as guide you through a series of meditation practices.
