Mindfulness & Psychotherapy for Stress and Anxiety
In today’s world, stress and anxiety seem to be running our lives. Chronic and unmanaged stress, worry, and anxiety are contributing factors to nearly all physical dis-eases and to all mental health difficulties.
We deserve more peaceful, more joyful, and more balanced lives.
Dr. Hersh deeply acknowledges these truths of our modern society and approaches therapy with an abiding belief that we all deserve to thrive in our own unique ways. A fundamental first step in this process however is to acknowledge and honor our struggles and roadblocks and to view them as learning opportunities. From that stance of acceptance, we can change an incredible number of things for the better.
Through a thoughtful integration of the latest evidence-based therapeutic approaches including mindfulness and meditation, positive psychology, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and energy psychology, Dr. Hersh approaches therapy from a flexible, collaborative, and compassion-oriented perspective. When clients feel like they are active participants in their therapy, they are more likely to come back, to apply their therapeutic learning to real-world situations, and to feel a sense of mastery and pride. And when clients not only feel validated by their therapist but can cultivate an increased sense of self-compassion, optimism, gratitude, and even humor in the face of social, emotional, and behavioral challenges, they are more likely to reduce their suffering and begin to thrive. Thus, Dr. Hersh aims to help clients not only to reduce “the negative” that gets in the way of healthy functioning but also to enhance “the positive” that can facilitate increased well-being and a sense of flourishing.
