Therapists for Anxiety, Depression and Couples

Mindfulness Therapy

Mindfulness is the practice of non-judgmental awareness of the present moment. When we practice mindfulness, we intentionally focus on our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment without judgment. Regular mindfulness helps reduce stress and anxiety, improves emotional regulation, enhances focus and concentration, and improves general well-being.

Mindfulness therapy is a therapeutic approach that emphasizes being present and fully engaged in the moment, helping individuals manage stress, anxiety, and depression. Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is at the heart of our practice at Behr Psychology. It provides a powerful blend of cognitive therapy and mindfulness strategies to improve our client’s mental health and help them navigate life’s challenges.

What is Mindfulness Therapy?

Mindfulness therapy uses practices to help you focus on the present moment, which reduces stress and promotes emotional well-being. Our therapists at Behr Psychology use MBCT to treat a variety of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, and stress.
