Mindfulness guides you to see your problems in a new way, which can help by turning confusion into understanding.
We teach you to apply knowledge and skills to your life so that you take an active role in your mental health.
Get Back to Living
Life should be about pursuing what matters most to you. We will help you get back to living the life you deserve.
Now is the Time to Get Help
Whether you have come here with anxiety, depression, relationship stress, or just feeling overwhelmed, we believe that everyone has the capacity to live a better and more fulfilling life.
Perhaps you have thought about getting help for a while, or maybe you've suddenly decided to reach out. Taking the step to do something about your problems is a wise and courageous choice.
There are many reasons why people decide not to get help. Sometimes they feel they deserve to be unhappy, or maybe they wait to see if things will change on their own. But the truth is that our problems tend to get stuck on repeat or even get worse if we do nothing about them.
At the Austin Mindfulness Center we believe that there IS a solution to your problems. We want to come along side you on your path toward relief and recovery. We will listen, seek to understand, and teach you the skills that you need to find a way out of your current struggles and toward a life of fulfillment.
Claudio Barrientos, LMSW has immediate openings. He is a mindfulness instructor and master licensed social worker.
