Our therapists at Simply Mindful Counseling help our clients learn how to be aware of and at peace with their current state while maintaining an awareness of the things around them that may need to change. This skill is useful in virtually any context and with nearly every issue that could bring a person into therapy. With mindfulness-based therapy our clients learn how to use these skills to address their thought and behavior patterns that have caused problems for them.
At Simply Mindful Counseling we have two therapists who have received certification to practice EMDR therapy. Our therapists spend time working with their clients to create a safe and therapeutic relationship before guiding them through the structured treatment protocol of EMDR. EMDR has shown to be effective at treating trauma as well as depression and anxiety. It entails having a person tell their story while engaging in bilateral stimulation in order to support the brain-body healing process.
Our thoughts drive negative feelings and our behavior can reinforce and perpetuate those negative feelings. Our therapists at Simply Mindful Counseling help people understand the though, behavior, feeling cycle and then teach them how to interrupt it.
In order to come to a place of acceptance, we first have to feel. Our compassionate therapists at Simply Mindful Counseling will help you experience your feelings – without judgment, and at a pace that creates safety for you with the purpose of foster healing and growth.
Depression feels awful. It's almost always accompanied by hopelessness and despair and it seriously impairs a person's ability to function in the everyday. Our compassionate and evidence-based therapists at Simply Mindful Counseling can help you find hope and learn tools to understand your depression and regain control of your life.
During the course of treatment with one of our therapists at Simply Mindful Counseling you will not only learn tools to manage your anxiety, you will learn to recognize your triggers and to identify your internal warning signs that the anxiety cycle has started. You will learn to disengage from negative thoughts and to treat them as information, rather than absolute truths, so they have less influence over your behavior.
