Mindfulness with Lanita

Always looking to add more that will benefit our clients, Vivify Wellness has partnered with mindfulness coach and trauma-informed yoga instructor Lanita England to help us bring a trauma-informed mindfulness group to our clients.

Studies on mindfulness have shown numerous positive effects on mental well-being.  Mindfulness is helpful in improving learning and memory, emotional regulation, self-referential processing, and perspective taking.

Our mindfulness group is co-facilitated by Lanita England, CMC, Trauma-Informed 200ERYT, RPYT and Laura Fontaine, MS, LISAC, LPC.  We will hold the groups in 8-week cycles.  Email [email protected] to be added to our waitlist for the next round of groups.

COVID-19 and Telehealth 

As the COVID-19 numbers here in Arizona improve, Vivify Wellness has decided to once again offer in-person therapy.  Due to the success and popularity of teletherapy that we experienced during COVID, we have also decided to continue to offer teletherapy for those who prefer it.  We use Doxy.me as the HIPAA-compliant online platform to use for our sessions.  

For clients using their insurance benefits, it is helpful to check with your insurance provider to ensure that telehealth services are covered by your plan. Please contact your insurance directly for the most accurate answer as to whether your insurance will cover teletherapy.
