If you’re looking for support and direction through a challenging situation or you are just ready to change in a new path in your life, we look forward to work with you to accomplish your goals.

At Mindful Journey Center we use Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) and Life Stress Resolution (LSR) and other Evidenced-Based techniques to help individual identify their areas of concerns, enables them to successfully confront their issues and discover their own conclusions, insights and resolutions. Mindful Journey Center is a safe and calm place where individuals receive effective and efficient interventions that help them to reduce their “emotional charge” and “negative sensations” that have been created due to negative past experiences and traumatic events. We incorporate a holistic approach where the connection between mind, body and spirit are addressed. This connection is needed to allow individuals to develop a connection with them and others.

Mindful Journey Center facilitates the help to individuals to conquer the personal growth they are striving for by providing a non-judging environment and supportive atmosphere and a highly personalized approach tailored to their individual needs. We provide a safe and calm place where individuals are able to resolve issues such as:

Using Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) perspective, trauma can be defined as any incident that has a negative physical or emotional impact on an individual. This is a very subjective issue as something could be perceived as traumatic by one individual, but not for another.

“Unlike most other forms of psychotherapy, Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) is about extracting the pain rather than adding skills.” – Susan Sluiter

EMDR Therapy for the Treatment of Emotional Trauma. In the EMDR Therapy process, the therapist works with the client to identify a specific problem that will be the focus of treatment. The client describes the traumatic incident, from which he is helped by the therapist to select the most important and most distressing aspects of that incident. While the client makes eye movements (or any other Dual Attention Stimulus), other parts of the traumatic memory or other memories come to mind. The therapist interrupts eye movements every so often to ensure the client is processing properly.

What to Expect

Our goal at Mindful Journey Center is to provide a person-centered environment where individuals, couples and families feel in a safe place where they can resolve the issues that brought them to services.

We provided person-centered services where the following can be expected:

• A safe and non-judgmental place to resolve the core of issues that brought individual therapy.
• Total exploration of individual’s concerns and understanding.
• Total attention on the individual while in session.
• Before the session, the counselor/facilitator will ensure that the individual is “session ready” in order to proceed with any intervention.
• Sessions are conducted in a confidential, calm and comfortable environment.
• A personal case plan developed based on the individual list of interest and distress levels.

If an individual consent to participate in the Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) and Life Stress Resolution (LSR), this individual will benefit from permanent change and relief, in some cases, years of emotional pain. Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) can be applied successfully to almost all psychological problems and disorders.

“Real resolution of traumatic stress is possible, with person retaining the ability to remember and make use of any knowledge gained during traumatic events, but free of the pain, effort, charge and resistance s/he had been carrying around with those incidents.”

– Marian K. Volkman
