Find Mindfullness Therapists & Counselors in Santa Barbara, CA.

 

Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy is one of the most widely used therapy types. It focuses on increasing your awareness of your thoughts, so that you can recognize negative thought patterns and act on them if necessary.

Mindfulness-based therapists use mindfulness techniques in conjunction with other evidence-based techniques to treat various mental health conditions and issues, including anxiety, stress, depression, PTSD, and more.

Under the direction of a licensed mindfulness-based therapist, you can become better connected with your mind and work to change thought patterns that keep you from achieving your goals.

Whether you are located in downtown Santa Barbara, the suburbs of Santa Barbara, other nearby places such as Ventura, Lompoc, or anywhere else in California, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.
