Some of our Specialties

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.

Clinical Hypnosis (Hypnotherapy)

Clinical Hypnosis is sometimes referred to as Hypnotic Relaxation Therapy (or HRT) because it involves the use of relaxation, mental imagery, and suggestion for a therapeutic purpose. HRT involves learning how to use your mind and thoughts in order to manage emotional distress (e.g., anxiety, stress), unpleasant physical symptoms (e.g., pain, nausea), or to help you change certain habits or behaviors (e.g., overeating, impulsivity).

The Risky Personality Trait On The Rise In The Young

In 30 years this trait has increased by up to one-third. Perfectionism in mind, body and career is on the rise in the young, new research finds. The current crop of college students is more obsessed with being perfect than they were 30 years ago. Making comparisons on social media could be one important driver for the rise in perfectionist tendencies. The change could be having a dramatic negative effect on their mental health. Dr Thomas Curran, the study’s first author, said: “Meritocracy places a strong need for young people

The Personality Trait That’s Unexpectedly Sexy To Both Men And Women

New study reveals the personality trait that is attractive to both sexes. When it comes to dating, both sexes prefer a non-conformist partner, a new study finds. Although most people know a rebellious man is sexy; the results upend the common assumption that men prefer women who play by the rules. Women in the study guessed that the personality trait of conformity would attract men, but it didn’t. The study’s authors write: “Women overestimated how attracted men would be to the conformist women. People think that men prefer conformist women,

The Natural Foods That Decrease Stress Risk By 23%

One of the easiest ways to reduce the risk of stress and anxiety. Eating vegetables daily is linked to a lower chance of anxiety and depression, new research finds. The study of over 65,000 Australians found that the more vegetables they ate each day, the lower their risk of suffering from anxiety and depression. Women in particular seemed to be sensitive to vegetable intake. Vegetables had a stronger protective effect on women than it did on men. Binh Nguyen, the study’s first author, said: “We found that fruit and vegetables

10 Common Signs Of Anxiety Disorders Everyone Should Know

The common signs of anxiety disorders are both psychological and physical. Anxiety comes in many forms, but all the different types often have certain core features. Like many mental health problems, almost everyone experiences anxiety from time-to-time. Whether it is a problem all depends on the amount and nature of the anxiety. Everyday anxiety in response to stressful events is normal, but severe anxiety in response to relatively minor events can be seriously disabling. Bear that in mind when reading the signs of anxiety. For example, a lot of people

Marital Interventions

When marriages are facing reoccurring problematic issues, they may need the help of a professional to help them restore their relationship. Depending on the depth of the problems I would choose either Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) or Cognitive Behavioral Family Therapy (CBFT) to help the couple resolve their turmoil. I like SFBT because it […]

Major Depression: This New Type Could Account For One-Third of Sufferers

One-third of people experiencing major depression could be of this new type. Inflammation in the brain could explain episodes of major depression in some people, new studies suggest. Around one-third of people experiencing major depression have high-levels of inflammation markers in their blood. This persistent inflammation could explain some of the worst symptoms of depression. The inability to feel pleasure — called anhedonia — is a particularly stubborn symptom. Depressed people often find it hard to experience pleasure from everyday activities like eating or spending time with friends and family.

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.
