Using Mindfulness Meditation For Depression and Anxiety.
Contact Dr. Ellie
What is it?
Mindfulness is a practice of becoming aware of physical sensations, thoughts and emotions while they are taking place in the moment. Mindfulness meditation is an ancient practice of becoming aware of one’s inner and outer environment by viewing what is taking place from a bird’s eye view. The ability to observe the workings of the body and mind allows the individual to examine everything in great detail without any attempt made to change, deny, block, or distract the thoughts, emotions and / or sensations. The process of simply becoming aware changes recurring negative thoughts and emotions. This process allows the individual to become more familiar with all the mental chatter and distractions of the mind to eventually becoming free of them.
How do I know this is needed?
If you or someone close to you is having difficulty with stress, anxiety, panic attacks, mid life crisis or is struggling with lack of meaning or purpose in life and would like to find relief from these issues, then Mindfulness meditation can be the right direction.
How to proceed.
Mindfulness meditation is relatively easy to learn, has no side effects and is a very cost effective approach to stress reduction. It can also be a wonderful spiritual practice to utilize as a way to enhance the quality of life. If you are looking to find relief from stress, physical and emotional pain, or develop a spiritual practice, then this is a wonderful tool to learn.

Most of us wandering this planet aren't aware of too many therapists who have a Ph.D. and also are Shamanic Healers. Knowing that you had a solid background in Western philosophy made me feel very comfortable going on this journey with you. I wasn't looking for Western healing, but I did want to make sure that my past was held solidly in a professional AND spiritual environment. Ellie you created a foundation where growth appeared for me rather than just contemplated. You helped me discover a path with the abilities I already have and that are unique to me and you gave me the support and encouragement to become my own healer.
Thank you, Ellie.M.H. Hollywood, CA 2012
