The Mindfulness Program at Greenepsych
Our fast-paced lives make it virtually impossible to sustain focus, express gratitude, visualize success, and think optimistically. Quiet time, like morning coffee and bedtime, are often interrupted by incoming texts, FB posts, tweets, and ever-breaking political news. It’s no wonder we tend to think and feel like we can’t keep up, and can’t ever get enough sleep.
At GREENEPSYCH, we recognize that taking care of ourselves is often secondary to taking care of everything and everyone.
Under the guidance of Dr. Mitchell Greene, and under the direction of counselor and meditation coach Nina Rizzo, Greenepsych is pleased to offer mindfulness instruction to teenagers, student-athletes, sports teams, and individual adults.
Who Can Benefit From Mindfulness Training?
Mindfulness for Athletes
Are your thoughts too negative during competition?
Are you too focused on the future that you struggle to perform in the moment?
Does balancing sports and school feel like too much for you to handle?
Are you constantly stressed and need to learn new ways to calm yourself down?
Mindfulness for Everyone
Are you having racing thoughts?
Does worry and anxiety overwhelm you so you can't get enough rest?
Do the changes in your life make you fearful of the future?
Is an addiction towards alcohol, food, or sex making you feel out of control?
