Is your family under stress due to your child's difficulties at school or at home? These challenges can effect the overall happiness of your family. I can help you! Collaboratively piecing together the puzzle of your child's needs and creating plans to assist in their success- you too, can feel successful! I provide you with practical skills that you can implement the same day. With over 20 years working as an educator and therapist in schools, I know how to assess and reach tweens, teens and young adults to help your family thrive.

Using mindfulness-based interventions, my emphasis is on empowering you to make the changes necessary to create a healthier balance in life.I have vast experience in the treatment of anxiety, depression, self-harm, relationship issues, family conflict and those professional/academic dilemmas that accompany life's transitions. Check out the website: bMindfulNow.com

I also enjoy offering Mindfulness Training to children & adolescents & parents, athletes & coaches, educators & health professionals in order to increase focus, and performance as well as improve the relationships in their lives. I am bilingual, offering all services in English and Spanish. I am committed to a culturally responsive treatment for all my clients.

Dea Rivera's Groups

Mindful Adolescents

Group designed to assist adolescents in Mindfulness- where they can learn to focus attention where they choose: Their environment, body, thoughts and emotions-responding non-judgmentaly, as opposed to reacting to life- where they are present in the moment, leading to balance and well-being.
