Present Mind Therapy
Rocky Mountain Mindfulness, Online
Health challenges, relationship problems, family and parenting issues, work and school pressures...difficulties in life are part of being human.
When times get tough, our minds naturally bounce back and forth between the past -- "Why did that happen to me?" or "If only I had made that decision when I had the chance" --and the future, "What if I never get to do that thing I've always wanted to do?" or "What if this is all there is to my life?" This back and forth, this push and pull, can intensify during difficult times, turning our pain into true suffering.
Next thing we know, our lives feel as though they are dictated by suffering. We end up stuck in a rut and out of touch with the present moment. Mindfulness goes out the window and it feels as though we are on auto-pilot.
When that happens, we can find ourselves doing fewer or none of the things that bring us joy, enrichment, or meaning. We get further away from the people and things that matter most to us. We lose contact with the present moment and our values.
It's tough,.. and, there is help for this! Compassionate and clear evidence-based psychotherapy can help. Using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), mindfulness, and other data-driven interventions delivered in tailored ways to you can help alleviate your suffering and get you back into a rich, meaningful life.
In our work together:
We will start by learning about who and what matters most to you.
We explore what has gotten in the way of living the life you envision for yourself.
We practice being mindful and stepping into the present moment with openness, courage, and self-compassion.
We chart your path forward. We will find out what steps (big and small) you need to take in order to live a life that is in line with your deepest values.
If you live in Colorado or Wyoming, together we can do all of this via HIPAA-compliant, secure, telehealth while you are in the convenience and comfort of your own space.
