Our bodies have a way of making themselves heard -- what message are you getting?
Felling run down, unmotivated, tense, restless, achy and having trouble sleeping are often nearly as bothersome as negative or worried thoughts, relationship trouble, or the feelings of worthlessness or directionless.
Depression and anxiety are the most common mental health challenges faced by adults in the U.S. Mind and body psychotherapies are evidenced by quality clinical research to reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, and can also support personal discovery, improved well-being, and recovered motivation to do the things you care most about.
High levels of stress, over time, leave you feeling run down, out of control, and can add to the severity of health problems like headaches and other chronic pain conditions. Through therapy that addresses both body and mind, you can achieve better stress management, greater confidence in personal skills, and even a lessening of bothersome or painful symptoms.
Insomnia is a condition in which sleep is chronically out of balance, leading to fatigue, dissatisfaction with sleep, and can increase the severity of other conditions such as depression, anxiety, and related health problems. Mind and body therapy can help reduce bothersome daytime sleepiness and improve sleep quality in as few as 6 sessions.
Our belief is that when the mind and body are in disagreement, or both are undergoing a significant challenge, there is greater suffering, and that lasting improvement in mental health requires attention to both. We only practice evidence-based therapies that are tailored to your own mental and mind/body health needs including psychotherapy, meditation, biofeedback, and yoga.
Biofeedback is a state-of-the-art, computer-assisted therapy that measures the body's signals of stress and tension. Through this tool you can learn what happens in your own body during stress and what works for you to restore balance. You can grow skills for managing stress, anxiety, and even lessen the severity of some chronic pain conditions, such as headache, long after leaving the office.
We offer empirically-supported, mindfulness-based therapies including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) groups. Appropriate therapeutic approaches are determined and discussed at the time of an intake interview and initial meeting.
