Welcome to Be Embodied

Be Embodied provides mindfulness based services in a warm, compassionate and non-judgmental atmosphere. We are here to help you develop self-awareness and learn acceptance based skills so you can build a life you want to be present for. Through our holistic approach we will guide you to finding the deep reservoirs of strength, joy and peace that already exists inside of you. Learn to change from the inside out and get your life aligned with your values and dreams!


At Be Embodied we aim to treat you as whole person and believe strongly in therapeutic collaboration! That means our providers look at more than just one aspect of who you are and use a team approach to assist one another in holistic treatment planning. We look at everything from the whole timeline of your life to influential outside factors such as living conditions and genetic predispositions. We make sure to give extra special attention to the elements that constitute your mental and physical wellbeing: health, sleep, activity, nutrition, medication and lifestyle. We know you are the expert on your life and we are the experts in our respective fields. Together, we will create treatment goals that suit your specific needs.

We believe collaborative care is essential! It is not uncommon in our office to experience a warm hand off where your primary provider meets with you and another practitioner that will supplement your care. For instance, if you are working with a life coach and you are struggling with appetite and exercise, your life coach may introduce you to our nutritionist across the hall; if you are struggling with anxiety around your nutrition plan you may be introduced to one of our counselors or nurse practitioner. All associates work very closely with one another on cases so that you get the most integrative and up to date treatment possible!
