Memphis Center for Mindful Living provides individual and group counseling, mindfulness classes, trauma-informed yoga, group meditation, and retreats. Founded by owner and psychologist Amy Balentine, the center offers mind-body services which provide improved quality of life and healing to children, teens, and adults.
Counseling is provided for a variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma, stress, relationship issues, inattention and hyperactivity, behavioral problems, academic problems, and parenting issues.
Empirically supported interventions are used, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, EMDR, mindfulness-based therapy, internal family systems therapy, play therapy, and solutions-focused therapy.
Amy Balentine has been a licensed psychologist in Memphis since 2004. She grew up in Missouri and earned her B.A. at Harding University in Arkansas and her M.A. and Ph.D. at the University of Kentucky. She lives with her husband, two middle-school age boys, and dog. She loves walking her (son's) dog, biking, reading, practicing yoga, playing board games, meditating (though sometimes she doesn't love it), drinking tea, laughing, and hearing the latest puns produced by her punny family.
