In times of uncertainty, loss, growth, and change, being supported is incredibly vital. Psychotherapy provides an opportunity for you to understand and transform your relationship with yourself and the way you relate to suffering so life doesn’t feel so hard or overwhelming.
I meet you where you are at and work collaboratively to attend to your specific needs. The heart of my work involves helping you listen deeply to yourself and trust your own experience. We invite curiosity and the body to guide our work.
A growing body of research is pointing to the importance of body wisdom in therapy. I see the value of utilizing multi-modalities when appropriate. Movement, touch, mindfulness practices, and body-based tools are offered for clients who are interested.
Somatic Experiencing uses the innate wisdom of the body to help you heal from past traumas and resolve symptoms related to anxiety, fear, and depression. This approach helps you release physical tension so that you can feel resilient, grounded, and relaxed. Clients often feel more present in their body, confident in their voice, authentic in relationships and at ease in their life.
SE can be incorporated in both psychotherapy and movement education sessions. For more information about Somatic Experience visit my resource page.
MOVEMENT EDUCATION & THERAPY
This type of session provides an opportunity for us to focus on how to help you move more effortlessly so you live with less tension and pain in your body. I offer comprehensive movement analysis, hands-on therapeutic work, body-awareness practices, practical tools and Somatic Experiencing (when appropriate) to support body integration and ease. I understand the importance of integrating new-found body awareness into daily life and provide accessible practices to support integration.
Persons who benefit from this service include those recovering from injuries or living with chronic conditions, persons wanting a weight-neutral and safe place to inhabit and move their bodies, dancers/athletes, and those persons interested in developing a new awareness of their body and movement that will benefit them for years to come.
Coaching provides an opportunity for individuals to work on a specific theme related to wellness and embodiment with someone who can offer both sound guidance and encouragement. Individuals often seek me out because they want to develop practices that support them in feeling more at home in their bodies and trusting of its wisdom. Session themes may include practices to support body trust, intuitive eating, and joyful movement. I offer coaching in person, over the phone, and via Zoom.
Workshops provide an opportunity to explore a specific theme in more depth. I have developed and offer the following workshops (see workshops and links workshop descriptions below).
