My services are arts and somatic (body-centric) based with a focus on working with trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome.
I work with women who are interested in doing the rewarding work of uncovering their deepest sense of resilience and wonder. The work, which may include Expressive Arts Therapy, is gentle but powerful and effective. I use a combination of Peter Levine’s Somatic Experiencing and Laury Rappaport’s Focusing Oriented Art Therapy – as well as many other modalities that are customized to your needs and individual preferences.
Our life experiences and traumas are held in our body – and our bodies tell the stories of our past. By meeting and greeting what is present in our bodies, we befriend our emotions instead of running from them with unhealthy coping mechanisms or habits like addiction. I’m here to help you let go of the busy-ness of the mind, in order to reveal the gems of wisdom that arise when you are able to connect to your own sense of intuition and insight. In a supportive environment, we can learn to release old patterns and limiting beliefs from childhood that no longer serve you.
