Somatic psychotherapy is an approach that views the body and mind as integral aspects of a whole.
Including the whole body in psychotherapy provides an expanded toolbox for addressing anxiety, depression, PTSD, unresolved trauma, and a myriad of common life issues.
Somatic and mindfulness-based methods such as Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and EMDR can help support your innate capacity to heal from the wounds of the past.
Somatic therapy can help you:
Access emotions and memories. Tuning in to the body with mindfulness can allow deeper access to emotions and memories than talk therapy alone.
Reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, while increasing your capacity to engage more fully in the world.
Clear blocks to moving forward that keep you stuck in old patterns and indecision.
Safely process trauma. Traumatic memories can be processed in small, manageable pieces, allowing the body to heal without feeling overwhelmed.
Integration of body and mind can be truly empowering. Contact me to learn more about how it works!
