My approach in treating most clients is based in encouraging them to practice mindfulness skills that they are introduced to in the first session. They are instructed in the basic neural structures of the brain and are informed on how psychotherapy impacts the brain neurobiologically. Clients learn the science behind feelings of well being and inner peace and are taught skills that they practice every day between sessions so that they can influence the neural firing of their brains in life affirming ways. All clients are instructed in meditation or centering prayer, which is a crucial part of cultivating a well lived life.
