Have you seen a talk therapist before but were unsatisfied with the results? If so, you are not alone.
When therapy just stays at the level of talk and the mind, it is limited with how helpful it can be. True change happens when you feel shifts inside of your body. For example, if you are suffering from stress or anxiety, you need direct experiences of your body relaxing. And if you need to have clearer boundaries, you need to feel strong boundaries in your body.
A Typical Session of Somatic Therapy
While we listen to what you share about your current situation and life history, together we will learn to pay attention to what your body is saying and needing. Although you may have come to experience your body as an enemy, your body holds tremendous healing wisdom if we learn to listen to it in a new way.
You will develop an awareness of different sensations in your body – both pleasant and uncomfortable. We will find if there is stuck energy in your body, and if so we will find a way to help that flow. You will become more connected to the range of your emotions and learn to befriend them. Together we will find step by step exactly what you need to heal, and the anxiety, stress, or trauma will melt away over time. I am extensively trained in different methods of Somatic Therapy and I am here to bring its benefits to you.
