Mindfulness is “paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally” -Jon Kabat-Zinn
Researchers have shown numerous mental and physical health benefits to practicing mindfulness in daily life such as decrease in anxiety, depression, stress, pain, and irritable bowel syndrome (to name a few.) Mindfulness has been shown to help increase immune function, positive coping skills, and overall well-being. I have training and plentiful experience using mindfulness myself and teaching mindfulness as a therapeutic technique to others. I have led mindfulness skills groups and taught the skills to individuals. Additionally, I have experience teaching these skills both in traditional therapy settings as well as in outpatient and inpatient medical settings.
