I’m Mirja Pitkin
I offer mind-body approaches for anxiety, stress, and depression.
One of the most amazing things has been Mirja’s ability to motivate me… Mirja helped me troubleshoot what was getting in my way.Mary M.
For almost 20 years, I have been working with people to improve their health and well-being.
My studies have ranged from meditation to arthrokinematics (the movements of joint surfaces); from EFT/Tapping to ideokinesis (a powerful method for teaching movement); from energy work to behavioral psychology.
The breadth of my knowledge enables me to use a truly integrated approach that addresses mind, body, and soul.
I love my work. It brings together so many of my skills and interests, including teaching, healing, problem solving and people.
I love learning about us human beings. I’m a total anatomy nerd, interested in everything from the cellular to the full body. Psychology is also a long-standing interest. I have paid particular attention to the psychology of anxiety, of depression, PTSD, mindfulness, happiness, spirituality, and behavior change. The energy body awes me, and I love working in that realm. I recently did Reiki Level 1 training.
I am passionately engaged with my work and thrilled to be useful.
I live with a lovely group of guys, my husband, our two sons, our dog, and our rooster. They are all compassionate, affectionate, and kind. (Seriously, even the rooster, a total sweetheart. Not like any other rooster I’ve known. Most throw their weight around to get the most and best scraps. Not this guy, he keeps guard, vigilant, as the gals eat. ) We also have a lovely lady cat who is an excellent huntress.
I enjoy friends, reading, dancing, and knitting.
You have helped me so much. The breathing, the tapping, and meditating help me deal with stress better, sleep better, and cope with acute, on-going back pain from a recent fall.
I love your energy and how you motivate and inspire me. I can tell this is your passion.SR
