Meet Dr. Jennifer Paul
Licensed Mental Health Counselor,
As a clinician with over 15 years of experience, I have gained an advanced understanding and training in many mental and emotional struggles, including anxiety, depression, self-esteem, women's issues, body image issues, and relationship issues.
Through the use of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), I have treated individuals with a balance of acceptance and challenge throughout my career and continue to be a student of the art of counseling.
I have my Master’s Degree and Doctoral Degree in Mental Health Counseling and Counselor Education, which has allowed me to be exposed to learn the most evidenced-based practices as a clinician. As a Linehan Institute trained and certified DBT therapist, I implement skills and interventions that will allow you to find increased emotional regulation, improved distress tolerance, improved relationships, and increased overall mindfulness.
My passion for living a mindful life began with my own awareness that I was, in fact, NOT living in a mindful way. My journey into my self and my own understanding led me to an overwhelming desire to share what I have learned. As part of my own conscious healing, I found greater joy in life, greater awareness of my emotions and thoughts, as well as deeper and more connected relationships. I look forward to sharing my journey and walking along the path with you on yours.
Why Focus on Conscious Healing?
It can help with
Engaging in mindfulness practices empowers us to enhance our attention and awareness of our thoughts and emotions, free from judgment. This, in turn, enables us to effectively manage strong emotions, reduce stress, alleviate anxiety and depression, strengthen our connections with others, and immerse ourselves more deeply in the present moment of our lives.
Devoting attention to our relationships not only enables us to nurture and strengthen healthy connections but also empowers us to disengage from toxic ones.
This transformative journey teaches us the art of articulating our needs, cultivating self-respect, and ultimately fostering richer, more meaningful connections with others.
Emotional awareness is our ability to recognize emotions in ourselves and others, to understand their effect, and to express these emotions in a healthy way.
Cultivating emotional awareness paves the path to self-regulation, empathy, and enhanced social skills..
Increased Self Awareness
Self-awareness involves learning to better understand why we feel what we feel and why we do what we do. With this better understanding of ourselves, we are able to experience ourselves through the lens of self-acceptance, as unique and empowered individuals. This leads to an increased ability to make changes in our lives, clarify our own unique needs, and acknowledging what we still have to learn. True consciousness begins with self-awareness!
Improved Body Image
Body image includes person’s beliefs, thoughts, perceptions, feelings, and actions about their body and appearance. Body image strongly influences they way we see ourselves, which ultimately influences our self esteem. Attending to one's body image issues is a catalyst for gaining self-worth, challenging negative self-talk and having an overall healthier relationship with ourselves.
Life Skills Coaching
Everyone of us needs guidance and support at points in our lives. This can be guidance in making a major life decision, support due to a recent loss, or coaching in order to attend to professional/work life issues. Having the guidance of a clinician during these times can help us to feel confident that we are proceeding with full awareness and consciousness.
