"Working with Diane and practicing mindfulness has changed my life in so many positive ways. It sounds so simple & easy but it isn't. It takes understanding, belief and dedication for it to work.Practicing mindfulness has helped me have less anxiety and worry less and enabled me to enjoy life more."
"I first came to see Dr. Sanford intending to tackle my all issues, battle all my demons - to fix all my problems. When she suggested I spend some time each day NOT wrestling with my problems, well ... I was skeptical. However, with her guidance I learned a new approach. Now when a situation arises that feels like a crisis, I can put it aside, focus on better thoughts, wait for a resolution, and later if the problem is still there - and so often it is not - I can deal with it calmly. This new attitude has quite simply changed my life."
