COUNSELING TO INTEGRATE MIND, BODY & SOUL
From a Somatic perspective, our mind and our body are not just intimately connected, but rather one living, breathing whole. Hence matters of our psyche and matters of our body are intertwined and intimately related. When we learn to integrate our thoughts with our body language, breath and feeling states, we gain access to more of ourselves and discover a world of information that guides us toward the answers we are looking for.
How I Work
I utilize techniques from Peter Levine's work with Somatic Experiencing - which helps to unwind and release the nervous system. I also use guided meditations adapted from the teachings of Richard Miller and Swami Satyananda and their work with Yoga Nidra. I integrate techniques from EMDR and Hakomi in my practice as well.
In a session I may ask you questions like "where do you feel that in your body?" "Does it have a color, a shape, a size?" "If it could speak, what would it say?" I ask these questions because they help you learn to speak the language of your body's nervous system. When you learn to speak your body's language you can heal fear-based thinking and past traumas from the inside out.
