Mindfulness-Based Counseling

Online & in Houston

Mindfulness isn't just a buzzword.

It's a powerful tool to help all humans; the young, the old, and the in-between. In a world that can feel mindless at times, mindfulness gives you the ability to take control of your daily life and be in the present. 

 

Jon Kanat Zinn, the father of secular mindfulness and founder of mindfulness-based stress reduction, described mindfulness as paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally.

 

At Human State of Mind Counseling, we embody the attitudes of mindfulness: nonjudging, patience, beginner's mind (every moment is new), trust, non-striving (not forcing a result), letting go (allowing things to be as they are), acceptance, gratitude, and generosity.
