In sessions with you, I may use the following approaches:

  • Somatic Psychology - Somatic Psychotherapy is therapy that focuses on the mind-body connection. In addition to traditional talk therapy, I utilize Somatic Psychotherapy, supporting you in increasing your body awareness, supporting you in integrating your feelings and emotions with your physiological responses, and holding your experience holistically.
  • PsychodynamicIn addition to working to overcome the specific difficulties you're dealing with now, we'll also look at what's going on beneath the surface, and how patterns and expectations developed in the past  (in your childhood, past relationships, and/or past circumstances) might be influencing your current relationships, thoughts and/or behaviors.
  • Focusing on the "here-and now"- In session, I use mindfulness, awareness, meditations, movement, and/or body tracking to bring you into the present moment as appropriate. 
  • Trauma Informed-  I can support you in feeling grounded and help find tools and resources that you can potentially use inside and outside of session.  I hold the neuroscience perspective of the mind body connection and use that to inform clients.
