Mindfulness

You can cultivate compassion for yourself while paying attention to what is happening, right NOW.

How often do you ‘zoom in’ on your experiences? This is a strategy that can greatly enhance your life.

I am grateful to the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn, and his mindfulness-based stress reduction approach, which many patients find helpful. You will learn basic mindfulness techniques to apply throughout your day. These are incremental change prescriptions, e.g. small behaviors that gradually help to shift your feelings and perceptions.

If you find it difficult to implement these techniques, we will spend time uncovering what obstacles are interfering with your progress toward optimal health.  If needed, we can conduct mindful exercises together in our sessions.  You will find my presence to be both a catalyst and a support.
