A note from your speaker

If you are reading this, I know you are interested in healing.

As a clinician, you know that exploring the various treatment modalities to facilitate that healing upholds the rigor of our profession.

For me, it became very clear that over many decades of that same pursuit, that the symptoms presented by my clients could become their ally - if they learned how to relate to them differently.

Whether the problem is stress, anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, or catastrophic illness, that presenting problem is the gateway to healing. It is dependent upon the quality of awareness and relationship applied to the perceived ‘problem’. Hence, my life’s work is creating conducive environments for the health of individuals. Mindfulness, and specifically the original template for mindfulness based interventions, MBSR, is teaching clients how to access their innate ability for healing through a new kind of awareness.

Join me in this restorative workshop to learn the original template for healing as developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D., leave with the tools that will transform your clinical practice - and help you with your own stress and burnout.

Here’s to healing,
