What To Expect At Your Visit
Mindful Zoul Psychosocial Services LLC, will implement evidence-based psychotherapy methods to instill self-understanding among clients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life and its situations. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that needs the participation and investment of the client combined with the therapist's assistance, as part of a teamwork in order to be effective. But in the end, making small changes to self-defeating behavior and thought patterns and coping with negative feelings or external stressors can bring life-altering results, which may lead to a better quality of life.
