Living Stress Free® Insight Therapy , Psychotherapy and Wellness Coaching

meTherapy for the Worried Well


Marilyn Guadagnino MT-BC LCAT is a NYS Licensed Creative Arts Therapist and Board Certified Music Therapist with 30 years experience working in both hospital and community mental health settings where she has practiced individual and group therapy, stress management, counseling and psychotherapy using mindfulness and creative arts therapy techniques.  


Marilyn has studied and practiced meditation and yogic philosophy since 1992, under authentic meditation masters. She teaches Mindfulness Meditation classes, Living Stress Free® Nada Meditation (a restorative sound mindfulness technique that she created), and the Living Stress Free® Wellness Program which teaches how to bring the state of meditation awareness into all areas of life, in a naturally balanced way.




Ten Reasons why Living Stress Free® creative counseling is unique and effective:


  1. Open-minded, unbiased, no agendas, no judgments.
  2. Easy going, inspired, spontaneous and positive - unconditional positive regard.
  3. All sessions are summarized with suggestions to implement between appointments, emailed to the participant. This  allows for continuity and a method to assist with keeping track of all the main themes discussed without trying to remember session to session.
  4. Therapy is based on mindfulness - learning how to open your awareness to the present moment, instead of dwelling on the past or the future. The past can be processed, understood, and then let go. Anticipatory anxiety about the future can be re-perceived and significantly lessened or eliminated. Mindfulness = optimal living.
  5. You will learn how to stop struggling with your mind and identify with the part of you that is your true self - who you really are.
  6. Everything discussed remains completely confidential - a perfect outlet for disclosing sensitive, private issues, with complete discretion.
  7. After working thirty years in the mental health field, Marilyn brings a vast knowledge base acquired more from practical experience than just book knowledge. She can easily assess what is a natural reaction vs what is a serious concern. This skill is fine-tuned only through years of experience.
  8. Specializes in helping people with anxiety, excessive worry, ruminating thoughts, panic attacks, post traumatic stress disorder, depression, mood swings, grief and loss, relationship issues and excessive, overwhelming stress.
  9. You will have complete freedom and anonymity due to self-pay pricing, not subject to the rules and restrictions of insurance companies. No one will ever need to know you are in therapy.
  10. Marilyn's therapy practice is part of Living Stress Free Inc, a wonderful resource to access more innovative services to enhance personal development and self improvement as your progress unfolds.
