Do You Struggle With Stress?

  • Do you feel dread & fatigue over your endless to-do list?
  • Are you overwhelmed and have trouble focusing with all you have to do?
  • Is it difficult to fall asleep even when you’re tired?
  • Do you have trouble letting go of worry?
  • Is it hard to relax?
  • Do you need a break from negative thoughts?

If relaxation feels like a foreign concept and negative thoughts cloud your mind, you’re not alone. In fact, up to 90% of doctor’s office visits stem from stress related issues. Stress can turn every corner into a shadow of doubt and every challenge into a mountain that looks too steep to climb. It shapes our reality with unwelcome pressures—another bill to pay, a deadline looming over us like a storm cloud, illness striking unexpectedly or the profound grief of losing someone dear. Confronted with such moments, our reactions vary wildly—from wanting to scream into the void or choosing escape in any form possible to considering less healthy coping mechanisms.

The battle against stress is often rooted in juggling the myriad demands from work,  home life which have often been complicated by traumas that have occurred along the way. My mission is to guide those feeling ensnared by stress, trauma, anxiety and depression towards achieving lasting relief—a state where happiness, healthiness, and peace aren’t just fleeting moments but part of the fabric of their everyday lives. By engaging in personalized counseling you’ll embarking on the transformative healing journey where you will learn methods that are designed not only to alleviate current stress but also to equip participants with mindfulness practices that integrate seamlessly into daily routines.

I extend support through The A Keen Mind Podcast—a resource aimed at reducing stress through practical mindfulness techniques. Each episode not only delves into insightful discussions on cultivating a mindful existence amidst chaos but also features guided meditations—a sanctuary for those seeking calm amidst the storm.

Remember: taking control of your stress doesn’t mean eliminating challenges from your life; it means transforming your relationship with them. Let’s embark on this path towards tranquility together.

Testimonial-

Jennifer  “ When I started the class, I wasn’t sleeping for weeks which caused me to feel anxious. Despite being very active and generally optimistic, I shut down, stopped eating, lost weight and became depressed. I felt helpless because my daughter was struggling with depression and I didn’t know how to help her.  I was taking medication and going to counseling, but nothing worked. This class gave me the tools I needed to live in the present moment. I stopped spending so much time living in the future and making up stories in my mind about my life that weren’t true. By the end of the course I was sleeping well and let go of worry and depression. I have referred many of my friends to MBSR and all of them have loved the class!”

Excellent Form of Mind-Body Medicine

Mindfulness meditation, along with yoga, is an excellent form of mind-body medicine. When added to, or combined with, an existing medical or a psychological treatment, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program can significantly benefit your health, and effectively enhance the treatment results pertaining to the following conditions:

Chronic pain, high blood pressure, heart disease, fibromyalgia, GI Distress, skin conditions, headaches as well as many other conditions.  It can also be helpful for psychological distress like panic, anxiety, depression, fatigue and sleep disturbances. Even if you are not facing a medical issue, MBSR can improve overall well-being and enhance your health. 

How It Works?

Neural-pathways comprise of neurons that are responsible to connect distant areas of the mind. Through repetition and practice, these pathways are strengthened and thus, formed into habits. If your mind is trained to overthink & stress, it becomes a habit. On the contrary, mindfulness meditation rewires the mind to view thoughts, differently. It teaches you to focus, relax and thereby reduce the ‘mental time-travel’ and ruminating about the past.
Even if you are not facing a medical issue, MBSR can improve overall wellbeing and enhance your health. According to the World Health Organization “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
