Some of our Specialties

Mindfulness-Based Therapy

Depression and anxiety Food and eating issues Low mood and negative thoughts Body sensations such as weariness and sluggishness Psychosis If you can relate to any of the above issues, mindfulness-based therapy may be right for you. MBCT helps people separate themselves from their thoughts and moods and teaches them how to recognize their sense of being, and aims to give participants the necessary tools to combat depressive symptoms as they arise. Evidence indicates that mindfulness-based therapy may reduce the rate of depressive relapse by 50%. If you or someone you know will benefit from mindfulness-based therapy, please contact us today so we can schedule an appointment. We would be happy to speak with you about how a Mindfully Healing Clinician may be able to help.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT is a short-term, problem-focused form of behavioral treatment that helps people see the difference between beliefs, thoughts and feelings, and free them from unhelpful patterns of behavior. CBT is much more than sitting and talking about whatever comes to mind during a session. CBT sessions are structured to ensure that the therapist and the person in treatment are focused on the different goals of each session, which in turn ensures that each and every session is productive. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is grounded in the belief that it is a person’s perception of events – rather than the events themselves – that determines how he or she will feel and act in response. If you or someone you know would benefit from cognitive behavioral therapy, please reach out today. We would be happy to speak with you about how a Mindfully Healing therapist may be able to help.

‘Suicide hotline, can you hold?’

Last spring, a report found that 23 calls to the veteran’s crisis hotline went to voicemail. The Veteran’s Administration inspector general said he didn’t even know there was a voicemail system. Politicians said all the things you’d expect politicians to say. The VA said it was hiring additional staff to comply with the inspector general’s report. And then nothing really changed. The VA started having the unanswered calls roll over to a backup crisis center, not run by VA, and a new report, issued today, finds that a fourth of

The Type of Dairy Products Linked To Lower Depression

Certain dairy products are associated with lower rates of depression. People who consume low-fat dairy products are less likely to be depressed than those who prefer whole-fat. The conclusions come from researchers in Japan and China. They studied 1,159 Japanese adults aged between 19 and 83. All were asked about their dairy consumption and levels of depression. People who ate low-fat dairy between one and four times a week were less depressed, the results showed. The benefits of dairy products could be down to trytophan, the study’s authors write: “Dairy

DBT – How Skills

Taking Hold of Your Mind: “How” Skills Non-judgmentally See, but don’t evaluate as good or bad. Just the facts. Accept each moment like a blanket spread out on the lawn, accepting both the rain and the sun and each leaf that falls upon it. Acknowledge the difference between the helpful and the harmful, the safe […]

The Very Best Learning Method Is Not Taught To Students Or Teachers

The one learning technique which works best is the one that students use the least. Spreading out learning over time is one of the most effective strategies. So-called ‘distributed practice’ means breaking up learning into short sessions. People learn better when they learn in these short sessions spread over a long period of time. The reverse — cramming in a short space of time — doesn’t work that well. Despite this, distributed practice is very infrequently used by students and may not be highlighted as a top strategy to them

Video: Depression and Anxiety Symptoms: Can You Have One Without the Other?

What’s the link between Depression and Anxiety? Depression and anxiety can occur at the same time. In fact, it is estimated that 45% of people with anxiety disorders meet the criteria for a depressive disorder and vice-versa for primary depressive disorders.  Some symptoms of depression and anxiety overlap, such as sleep issues, irritability, and concentration […]

2 Video Games Linked To High Intelligence

Some video games can act like an IQ test. Certain strategy games can act like an IQ test, according to new research. People who perform well at the two games also did better at standard paper-and-pencil intelligence tests. One of the video games is called ‘League of Legends’, a popular game which has millions of players around the world. The second game is called Defence of the Ancients 2 (DOTA 2). Professor Alex Wade, who led the study, said: “Games such as League of Legends and DOTA 2 are complex,

Counseling for Anxiety

Is anxiety taking over your life? Does it feel like you can’t control it no matter how hard you try? Have you already tried therapy but found it ineffective? If this sounds like you, Mindfully Healing can help. Our practice offers the most effective forms of treatment, to get relief from the anxiety that you deserve. When it comes to treating anxiety disorders, research shows that therapy is usually the most effective option. That’s because anxiety therapy – as opposed to anxiety medication – treats more than just symptoms to the problem.

Counseling for Trauma

Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime whether it’s a car accident, abuse or neglect, the sudden death of a loved one, a violent criminal act, exposure to the violence of war, or a natural disaster. While many people can recover from trauma over time with the love and support of family and friends and bounce back with resiliency, others may discover effects of lasting trauma, which can cause a person to live with deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or posttraumatic stress far after the event has passed. In these circumstances, the support, guidance and assistance of a therapist is fundamental to healing from trauma.

Online Counseling

*Due to concerns regarding the COVID-19 outbreak and social distancing recommendations, some Mindfully Healing Clinicians are now offering VIDEO TELEHEALTH services to both new and established clients.

Grief & Bereavement Counseling

Bereavement and grief aren’t light-hearted topics. Bereavement refers to the process of recovering from the death of a loved one, and grief is a reaction for any form of loss. Both encompass a wide range of emotions such as fear, anger and deep, deep sadness. The process of adapting to a loss can dramatically change from person to person, depending on his or her background, beliefs, relationship to the person who’s passed, and other factors. Common symptoms of grief can be physical, emotional or social.
