What is Mindful Self-Compassion?
Mindfulness is bringing non-judgmental awareness to the present moment. Self-Compassion is treating ourselves with the same kindness and compassion as we would a good friend.
Benefits of Mindful Self-Compassion
- Becoming aware of our negative internal dialogue.
- Meeting moments of struggle with kindness instead of harsh self criticism.
- Increasing motivation and inner strength needed to meet life’s challenges and obstacles with our compassionate voice.

Therapeutic approaches I utilize in guiding clients finding their inner strength include CBT, Solution Focus, and Strength Base therapy. Utilizing a few approaches help meet the need of every client. I am currently providing services for self-paying clients and take some insurances. For more information go to www.thriveworks.com.
