At FamilyFirst, we understand that our mental health is closely tied to our physical health and well-being (and vice versa). Increasing our capacity to cope with stressors, making positive dietary and exercise choices, practicing effective sleep habits, increasing our sense of positive self-regard, and improving our relationships with others are wellness essentials. Family First offers a wide range of individualized wellness services to address your/your family’s wellness needs and goals.
Private, personalized wellness services offered at FamilyFirst may include Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Mindfully Managing Insomnia, Mindfulness Meditation and Gentle Yoga, and Mindful Parenting.
Dr. Marcia Kaufman, who facilitates our wellness services, is a licensed clinical psychologist with a background in nursing and education and she is a trained mindfulness meditation and yoga instructor. In her wellness offerings, she teaches participants how to better care for themselves and live healthier lives. Mindfulness practices can help relieve symptoms of pain, anxiety, depression, and insomnia. Further, a combination of gentle, restorative yoga and cognitive-behavioral techniques can be used to help better manage insomnia and relieve symptoms of stress. In parenting, mindfulness strategies can be useful for helping children cope with anxious feelings and tolerate intense emotions.
