“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.
As spiritual beings having this human experience, relationships are essential- the relationships with ourselves, others, and what one views as the Divine Higher Power. The relationship with ourselves involves our Mind (our perception), Body (our physical experience), Spirit (the essence of all), and Emotions (the bridge between physical andmental). At the same time, relationships with others bring a sense of peace and wholeness.
There is correlation between the Mind, Body, Spirit, Emotions, and our relationship with others, that an imbalance in any of these areas may cause complications and issues in one’s life. When we find ourselves imbalanced, our natural compass will motivate us to seek assistance to walk us back to our true selves.
My name is Mija Bradford, and after 27 years in the financial industry. I switched careers to help people walk their journey of living life on their terms. I specialize in holistic practice, focusing on the interrelationship with all dimensions of a person.
My therapeutic style integrates a variety of therapeutic modalities, like psychodynamic theory and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive-behavioral theory CBT, mindfulness, trauma informed, Person-Centered Therapy, and even Reiki and Sound Bowl Healing. My clinical interests include counseling children, adolescents, and adults experiencing anxiety, mood disorders, body image issues, recovering from early childhood trauma, and couples exploring nonconforming relationships.
Together let us explore what it means to be you!
