Nicholas Demaio, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Pittsburgh
With a contemplative model of engagement, and honoring the immediate moment, I am dedicated to offering a compassionate and vibrant therapeutic relationship to those seeking support. Whether facing depression, anxiety, grief, PTSD, trauma or struggling with life transitions or addiction, the healing process begins just the same: right where we are. Contemplative psychotherapy and mindfulness practices include insights from behavioral-cognitive therapy, guided imagery, breath work and narrative therapy.
Contemplative psychotherapy approaches the therapeutic process through mindfulness and loving-kindness practices to uncover our genuine goodness, natural dignity and innate wisdom - our "brilliant sanity." The results are clarity, openness, compassion, a better integration of body, mind and energy.
Mindfulness therapy can offer effective treatments for problem behaviors and complex trauma-related symptoms. Mindfulness improves our awareness of our thoughts and feelings with the goal of a non-judgmental acceptance that does not attach or react. Benefits include relaxation, stress reduction, the alleviation and prevention of depression and anxiety.
