Our Teachers

At some point in our lives, we all encounter difficulties. These hard times may be related to our relationships, past or current traumas, work challenges, health problems, among others. At Mindful Healings, we focus on the entire person. This involves taking a holistic view of the client and integrating healing practices for all facets of your being. 

Our first goal is to get to know you and co-create a healing plan for you. We partner with you to find what will work best for you. In addition to relational  psychotherapy, we will integrate mindfulness meditation, yoga, eating for your body type, and other holistic healing practices. We always keep in mind your culture, religion, age, sexual orientation and other personal variables while co-creating your plan. 

Our main objective is to help you find the healing practices for your specific situation, and walk with you on your journey to holistic health. We believe you can transform your life and find the peace you want.

Services are provided in English and Spanish to adults, adolescents, children and families.
