Mindfulness calls on you to wake up to the possibilities, benefits and challenges of human life with awareness and intention that allows you to live "lit"! Mindfulness encourages a cultivation of compassion for yourself while searching deeper to uncover wisdom and healing opportunities.
Mindfulness therapy increases awareness of feelings, thoughts, and actions to reduce auto-pilot reactions that often keep us in stuck places. Mindfulness is an invitation to the present moment, and mindfulness therapy is an invitation to the healing opportunities in the present moment.
The mindful therapist brings trained awareness to the counseling experience to identify opportunities for healing and growth.The relationship between therapist and client can serve as a practice ground for mindful skills.
With significant practice history serving children and families, our highly-trained counselors understand that all humans live in the context of relationships. The health of various important relationships throughout your life significantly affect how you see yourself and how you show up in relationships.
Our therapists are trained to consider your relationship history over your lifetime, along with patterns in how you engage in relationships currently. Attachment-informed therapy works to repair past relationship traumas and inform healthy relationship experiences in the present day.
Somatic experiencing, or SE, is a body-focused counseling model that allows healing from trauma, stress-related symptoms, and toxic belief systems about yourself. We create massive amounts of energy in our bodies in response to stress. If you've heard of "fight, flight, or freeze/fawn", that's the kind of energy that somatic experiencing is addressing.
The body's natural strategies for self protection are often hindered in traumatic experiences. That reactive energy can get stuck in the body. SE encourages increased tolerance for difficult bodily sensations and emotions, and invites the body to complete the cycle.
Somatic practices can also illuminate bold internal structures that you want to grow, such as supportive belief systems and healthy boundaries. Feedback from clients about healing with somatic experiences are illuminating and profound.
Mother Wound Healing
Modern society encourages a toxic environment for women and mothers, holding women to unreasonable standards such as wrapping her identity up in her utility, upholding impossible standards of perfection, and ignoring her own needs or ambitions to care for others.
Healing the Mother Wound involves an integrative mix of counseling approaches such as grief work, somatic experiencing, cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness to shift internal belief systems and heal from the developmental trauma brought on by this cultural dynamic. We have the roadmap to reclaim that feminine essence that powers your vibrancy, power, and evolution.
