I will utilize a mindfulness-based approach in my work. This includes cultivating a practice of increasing greater awareness and attention to the present moment and developing a deeper connection to oneself. By practicing to observe whatever is arising in the moment with curiosity and compassion, my intention is to help you break free from the habits and patterns that are no longer serving you, while simultaneously creating new healthy responses. While exploration of your past may be explored, my focus is on the present and how to help guide you to live your optimal life.

MINDFULNESS & MEDITATION
Mindfulness is the practice of living your life with greater awareness, attention and intention. It is a practice in which we can become centered in each present moment, anchored in your breath and body, and respond with curiosity to whatever is arising. When practicing mindfulness, we also cultivate gratitude, compassion and loving-kindness towards ourselves and others, allowing us to go through life with greater understanding of how live authentically and in alignment with our intentions.

Individual and Couples Therapy
Our therapeutic modality comes from a place of mindfulness in which we focus on being in the present, accepting what is arising in the moment, and how to create new habits and patterns that will get you unstuck from the habitual cycles that are no longer serving you. This also includes working towards being in alignment with your head and your heart, effective communication skills, speaking from your authenticity, and acknowledgement that growth and change are normal and healthy aspects of life.
Whether you are transitioning to being single to married, married to parenthood, married to divorce, stay-at-home-parent to back into the workforce, retirement, empty-nester, career change, relocation, or any other significant transition, we are here to help release you from old stories in order to create a new working model for you to operate from. It is beneficial notice where you are getting stuck in the past, as well as your fears and anxieties about the future, all the while helping you become more present in who you are in the here and now.
There is no manual on how to parent, and often we find ourselves living by trial and error on what will work best with our kids. BAMTC offers individual sessions and group classes on how to not only survive, but thrive, in your parenthood. Drawing upon the foundations of a mindfulness practice, of increasing your presence, awareness and attention, you will learn how to respond not react, as well as role model the very behaviors you are wishing to see. Practicing presence, patience, compassion will increase the connection between you and your child, and create an authentic, peaceful relationship and home environment.
Stress and Anxiety Reduction
Mindfulness has been scientifically proven to reduce stress and anxiety and can be beneficial in almost any setting or situation. Being mindful allows us to be more aware of the triggers to our stress and anxiety, and as you learn to notice and acknowledge them, you become more skilled at not being swept away by them. When we are feeling overwhelmed, it is very difficult to access our tools, so through practice, you will learn to calm down the emotional brain and be able to utilize the tools that will benefit you overall well being.
Weekly Meditation Classes
We always focus on our to-do list, but rarely focus on our “to-be” list. As humans, we are busy “doing” without having the opportunity for just “being.” When we create intentional time dedicated to slow down and disconnect from our digital devices, our busy and over-scheduled lives, it is then that we become grounded and in touch with ourselves, our intentions and be in alignment with our minds, body and spirit. Research shows numerous health benefits to a meditation practice, from stress and anxiety reduction, alleviation of chronic pain, and improved overall health. During this 45 minute meditation, you will be guided on how to provide structure for your sit, then you will be given the space and the gift of silence. After this period of stillness, your brain and body will be recharged, preparing you for getting through the rest of your to-do’s. Meditations every Wednesday from 12:15pm – 1pm. Registration is required, as space is limited, so be sure to view calendar and register to hold your spot.
