FAQ'S

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is being aware of your mind, body, and feelings in the present moment, non-judgmentally. It allows you to be fully immersed in the NOW vs. past and future. Mindfulness is scientifically proven to change the structure of the brain, due to it’s neuroplasticity, for new healthy thought and behavior patterns to be created.

What are the benefits of Mindfulness and Meditation?

A few benefits of Mindfulness and Meditation include: 

  • Reduce Stress, Anxiety, and Depression
  • Increase self-acceptance and empathy
  • Improve sleeping patterns and the immune system.
  • Regulate emotions for better self control
  • Improve focus, memory, and executive functioning skills
  • Increase self compassion towards self and others
  • Enhance Resilience and overall feeling of wellbeing
Are you a life coach?

Similar concept, but completely different areas of work. My coaching is about applying practical exercises that create neurogenesis (new neurons) and weaken the connections between the fear centers of the brain. I’ll give you the tools needed to create healthy thoughts and behavior patterns, calm the anxious mind, enjoy the present moment, and cultivate a balanced frame of mind.

Do I need to know Mindfulness and Meditation to start your programs?

Nope! I designed these programs ESPECIALLY for beginners. I developed a formula with baby-step approach that has turned biggest skeptics into the most passionate advocates.

What is the formula you developed?

It’s called the M&M&M formula! AKA Mindfulness + Music + Meditation.

This combination allows for you to experience the benefits of a Mindfulness practice PLUS the benefits of music mood. This allows for neurogenesis and the release of your feel good neurotransmitters, by using auditory stimulation and mindful awareness.

What do your programs include?

Explanation of affirmations, how to meditate at your own pace, exercises that you can do on your own to practice, self-reflecting exercises, how to restart your day or begin your day on a positive note. Tools that can help cope with everyday life stressors.

Is this therapy?

No. I’m not a licensed therapist nor do I practice psychotherapy. The programs I’ve created are based off of Jon-Kabat Zinn, PhD creator of MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction), my own research and experiences of what’s worked.

I'm skeptical about this new age Mindfulness and Meditation stuff. Does this really work?

Besides heavy backing from neuroscience, I’m living proof that it does! Like any new practice though, you get out what you put in. I’ll give you the tools and homework to succeed, but you must apply them in your everyday life to get the best results. I can’t do the work for you.

Am I going to have to mediate an hour to see results? There is no way I am going to be able to sit still for that long.

You don’t have to! This is the reason why I started coaching, because it was near impossible for me to sit still for so long. My coaching programs allow you to practice at your pace using a baby step formula. This allows you to enjoy the benefits without having to sit for an hour. Overtime, as you apply this practice into your life, you’ll be able to sustain meditating for longer periods of time.

Okay, I think I am ready! Where do we go from here?

First, we’ll schedule a consultation to see if I’m skilled in helping you with your areas of concern. During our consult we’ll discuss what you would like improve in your everyday life to optimize your ability to handle life’s inevitable difficulties! If we move forward, I will create your tailored made program which includes mindfulness and artistic exercises. Read more here!
