By the time I found my way to therapy and a Mindfulness practice I was worn out, stressed out, and on the edge of burnout. 10-years working in fast-paced corporate jobs, living in NYC, and working 50-60 hour weeks had me fried.
The highs had me experiencing anxiety that left me irritable and edgy toward the ones I loved (some even told me I was angry), and I always felt like I was one step away from an emotional meltdown.
The lows made it hard for me to see the beauty in my life, my friends, my loved ones. I was never present. I had a hard time appreciating what I had, and sometimes felt so overwhelmed that I wouldn’t get off the couch unless it was to drag myself back to work.
I can promise you, mindfulness saved my life...

This course isn't only for those who are actively working with anxiety and depression.
I truly believe all of us could benefit from deeper insight and tools to live a more calm, present, and connected life. Ultimately helping us to enjoy, more fully, the every day.
Mindfulness has not only decreased my anxiety and depression symptoms, but it has made my world more vibrant. I am happier, healthier, and more grateful each day for not only the good but also the struggle. I don’t get thrown off by the little things like I used to.
