From Denise: "I combine working with mindfulness and behavior design so that people can clarify their goals and then move toward them with greater mindfulness - which means things like connection with one's self, goals, aspirations, needs, priorities and other things - within whatever given context these reside. I incorporate a short mindfulness meditation. If people would like to integrate more meditation or mindfulness practice, we can also build that into the sessions and home practice with a personalized meditation recording.
After establishing goals and objectives, we set up a identified number of sessions so that people can make space in their lives for it in an intentional way and I designate time in my calendar that is just for you. If this sounds like something you'd like to explore, email me. Even one session can be valuable if you are trying to clarify your direction and intention." - Denise

2020 Tiny Habits® For Stress Reduction, Meditation and Wellbeing
It's a myth that it takes 21 days to form a new habit or requires a high level of motivation and self-discipline, among other myths. You can learn a new habit in as little as 5 days.
