Mindfulness is about focusing on simplicity by being in the present moment and getting out of our heads where we create stories that are filled with negativity and fearful thoughts.
I can show you a variety of mindfulness-based techniques besides sitting on a pillow and focusing on your breath. It's about staying focused in the moment and clearing the clutter so that we can focus on the essence of who we really are.
Negative thoughts are generated by dysfunctional core beliefs that we all have and the thought that we create determines how we feel. If you can change the stories that you created in your mind around situations that you are strongly holding onto and believe without any evidence of truth to the belief, you will be free from anxiety/depression.
We will identify your core beliefs and the root cause of them when they developed during your upbringing. We will then replace them as you gain insight.
Motivational interviewing is a counseling technique that will help you resolve ambivalent feelings and insecurities about your recovery. We will explore feelings to find your own motivation to change.
Research has shown that this intervention works well when you feel discouraged, unmotivated, stuck, or unprepared for change. If you are motivated to change, I will meet you where you are in your recovery. There is more than one way to recover from addiction.
When pets die, a human heart will break….Grieving a beloved pet can be devastating. I offer a safe space to process the grief of your beloved pet and make peace with the loss. Your pain, grief, disbelief, frustration, anger, and sadness are intrinsic to the healing process. I offer tools for healthy coping mechanisms and how to handle self-care through your grief journey. I can help you be intentional with your planning with the passing into heaven which will bring about peace while you create final memories.
How you grieve, how long it takes, and what it looks like is unique to you. Finding support when we experience loss decreases the risk of developing unhealthy coping mechanisms like falling into a depression, overeating, or drinking excessively.
Life is precious. Together, let's honor what we have been graciously blessed with...our pets' lives whom we love so dearly.
