At The Mindful Connection of Long Island
we have a variety of services to meet your needs.
We are a group of independent practitioners with a wide variety of specialties who have come together under one roof with one vision - to provide exceptional, whole-person care for our patients.
We are psychologists and social workers, each with different specialties, a functional medicine doctor, a mindfulness meditation instructor, as well as reiki, acupuncture, hypnosis, Chinese medicine, and Qi Gong practitioners.
Come for a single service or a few to best meet your individual needs.
If desired, our practitioners are available to work as a team, collaborating together to maximize the understanding of your unique situation (mentally, physically, and spiritually) to facilitate an integrative care plan. Whatever service is chosen, our patients are personally supported and nurtured by our mindful professionals.
In the "Meet Our Practitioners" tab you will see a picture and personal profile for each professional at our center. Choose a practitioner you'd like to connect with and reach out by phone or through the email provided. The practitioner will get back to you shortly and will answer any questions you have.
Upon arrival at the center, you’ll notice we aren’t a typical psychology office. You’ll enjoy a calm, inviting waiting room with mindful music playing, a gratitude board, and an "inspirations" journal where you may share a positive thought, inspirational quote or poem. You'll also find a bulletin board displaying our wonderful upcoming workshops!
Come a little early and unwind in our “meditation garden,” equipped with wireless headphones, a bench and meditation cushions for use as you enjoy a short meditation from our list of options. A foot massager is also provided to enhance your relaxation experience while waiting.
At The Mindful Connection of Long Island we have a number of highly skilled, compassionate psychologists and social workers with a variety of different specialties.
Our goal is to help each individual regain his/her sense of emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. When people feel overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, resentful, or off-balance, they have often lost their sense of connection with themselves. Psychotherapy can be a wonderful tool to encourage us to stop, reflect, and reconnect to our own inner voice, a very powerful and wise guidance system. As a result of the various forces/people that surround us, and the patterns that we have learned to habitually live by, we often lose this sense of connection to our inner self. When this is the case, it is impossible to feel true happiness or be productive. Connect with us to better connect with yourself.
De-stress with body based awareness and mindfulness practice. We offer both private and group mindfulness meditation sessions, which encourage you to shed harmful habits and instead find resonance and purpose that nurtures your nervous system and needs.
Functional Medicine doctors strive to identify why a patient is suffering from anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, OCD, ADHD, autoimmune disease, neurological disorders, IBS, etc. and treat the root causes. "All disease begins in the gut" as Hippocrates said. Our goal is not to simply mask symptoms with medications. We provide a thorough individualized assessment in order to develop the optimal, personalized treatment plan for each person.
Medication, although it may be necessary in some patients, is not the first line therapy in our practice. No one has a Prozac deficiency. If antidepressant meds were the answer, we wouldn't have an epidemic of anxiety and depression that exists in our country today!
*Our goal is complete restoration of well-being - both mental and physical, not simply a decrease in symptoms*
We have exceptional practitioners certified in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. Acupuncture helps the body to awaken, restoring and regenerating the self-regulating mechanisms in your body and life. Our practitioners will provide an individualized assessment of what specifically is imbalanced, and provide personalized treatment, including diet and lifestyle recommendations.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. We provide 1 on 1 private Reiki sessions by appointment.
Hypnosis is a treatment with many benefits. It can be used to decrease anxiety, fear, and worry, as well as to increase self-confidence. Hypnosis can aid with weight loss, smoking cessation, sleep issues, and academic focus.
We provide a number of wellness workshops on various topics, including stress management, gut health, functional medicine, Qi Gong, mindfulness, etc. Our offerings are updated regularly so check the "Workshop" tab often. We would love to have you join us!
