Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
“Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a psychotherapy that is based on the cognitive model: the way that individuals perceive a situation is more closely connected to their reaction than the situation itself.” -Beck Institute
Rational Emotive & Cognitive Behavior Therapy-” Developed by Albert Ellis . According to RECBT it is largely our thinking about events that leads to emotional and behavioral upset. With emphasis on the present individuals are taught how to examine and challenge their unhealthful thinking ” – stated on Ellis Institute website
At Mindful Power our therapists have dedicated a large portion of their post-graduate training on CBT and RECBT interventions, including the completion of multiple certification levels via the Aaron Beck and Albert Ellis Institutes.
Although the birth of a baby is often highlighted as a time of pure joy,
it can be one of the most challenging times in a woman’s life.
Women of various races, ethnicities, socio-economic status, educational backgrounds, and ages are all can be affected by postpartum depression (PPD) and anxiety. Individual and Group Therapy has been shown to be effective in reducing the numerous symptoms associated with PPD and anxiety.

- Constant worry about the baby
- Inability to care for self
- Intense feelings of shame and guilt
- Feeling out of control
- Frequent bouts of crying
- Loss of interest in activities
- Feeling disconnected from the baby
At Mindful Power we offer both individual counseling focused on the treatment for Postpartum as well as a Monthly Postpartum Support Group.

CBT for the Millennials
Facing challenges never experienced by previous generations
Millennials, the first generation to come of age in the new millennium, are facing challenges never experienced by previous generations. They must navigate thru the influence of social media on dating, friendships, and career. They have the task of maintaining the personal impact of a political environment often filled with conflict and tension. In addition, they must find financial stability, career success, and self fulfillment. At Mindful Power LLC , we understand the stress resulting from these challenges and work to create a holistic means of addressing them.
Technology with Therapy
Measuring one’s stress, anxiety, and sleep
At Mindful Power we recognize how influential technology is in our daily lives and as a result have seen the importance and strength of using it to support the enhancement of our clinical work. This includes the use of Spire, a device that measures the one’s stress, anxiety, and sleep. We then utilize the information gathered to develop a means of reducing stress and anxiety specifically targeted to the uniqueness of our clients’ needs. In addition to Spire, we integrate Meditation Apps, and Virtual Reality for addressing phobias/fears.
