Who you are shows up in every aspect of your life: your posture, your voice, your movement, your quality of breath, as well as your emotions, thoughts, habits, and desires. Your nervous system is intricately involved in how you move and breathe. When we suffer physical and emotional trauma, body, mind, and emotions are all affected. Just talking about it rarely helps.
I include the body in psychotherapy inviting awareness of physical sensations and movement. Most clients find that talking about difficult things is easier when they can move around. I work with clients who have experienced trauma from chronic pain, illness, and disability.
It's never too late to address limiting patterns of being. Pain in one place doesn't always mean that's where the damage is. Injuries - both mental/emotional & physical - can create lasting compensations that bring their own challenges. Whether you're 18 or 88, you can benefit from this work. Balance, agility, strength, flexibility, and yes, your core are not just physical issues. They have their corollary in our psyche. Change starts with accurate self-perception and awareness of your habitual state. I incorporate Tibetan Yoga, Taoist, and biopsychosocial world views in your care and treatment.
Private 50 minute sessions.
