Mindful Psychotherapy - developing the art of living in the here and now

Tanya T. Wiser, LCSW LICENSE #l7621

The work I do is guided by the principles of psychology, contemplative insight and neuroscience-based practices that support our heart and minds ability to heal. My approach to supporting personal healing has evolved over many years of clinical practice, study and an intensive Buddhist meditation practice.  There are three critical awareness training practices I teach that can be combined with bilateral stimulation. Each clinical practice is in itself a powerful support for the process of healing but when combined further enhance and accelerate our innate and natural capacity to find balance, wholeness and joy.  
Sometimes our circumstances, thoughts, emotions or responsibilities feel like a barrier separating us from those we love as well as from what is happening in the present moment.  If your intention is to be more present in your life Mindfulness, Compassion and Somatic Experiencing practices can help you.  In addition, if you have experienced trauma, are struggling with addictive behaviors or have difficulty processing emotional experiences the added benefits of bilateral stimulation, by way of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), can support and even enhance your therapeutic healing process.
When you enter mindful psychotherapy, If you decide to do so, I will offer you tools, support and engage therapeutic techniques with your personal needs and preferences in mind. With these in place along with some practice you will learn it is possible to stop reactive behaviors such as the impulsive running away from experiences and undesirable feelings.  Instead, you will  discover how to repeatedly turn toward your inner experiences as well as  life’s difficulties with more understanding, wisdom, courage and skillfulness so that you are empowered to navigate your own uniquely personal, wise and compassionate path through life.
