Holistic Psychotherapy is a whole-person and a client-centered approach to therapy
that honors and facilitates the balancing of all the parts that make us human--the cognitive mind,
the body (soma), the emotions/feelings, and the Psyche or soul.
Often in our modern cultures and westernized societies, and in this computer-internet age,
there is a disconnect between body, mind, and spirit--there is a lacking in accessible ways to
understand and experience the Body-Mind-Spirit relationship in resonant, poignant, healing ways.
Somatic Psychology utilizes holistic psychotherapy tools to assist clients in learning how to
build mindfulness of their Body-Mind connection, and to recognize when something is out of
alignment and causing emotional stagnancy, mental stuck-ness, or a general inability to move
forward in life.
Somatic-Psyche is the union and healthy balance between the body, mind, and spirit.
Somatic means of the cellular body, the "soma," where our feeling experience is housed, as well
as all the traumas of our life (our emotional and mental impacts, big and small)
The body houses all the memories of our lives, both conscious and unconscious.
Psyche is the energy, the chi, the "stuff" that powers the body. It is the Spirit or the Soul, as it relates to the power of the Mind.

I offer an open, collaborative therapeutic
environment, that is empathetic
to exactly where you are in your life right now.
I welcome the opportunity to support you
in bringing ease and resolve to any present
emotional and mental suffering.
Somatic and Holistic Psychotherapy blends naturally in traditional counseling environments,
to enable the bridging of the soma-psyche gap in a way that organically supports the healing of
past wounds (whether they be present-day adult traumas, or family of origin issues), to enable
the getting beyond troubling, obsessive thoughts and limiting behaviors.
Approaching the healing of any emotional discomfort, grief, or mental confusion in a holistic way,
serves to deepen our capacity to know ourselves in a naturally whole, integrated, complete way.
Holistic-Somatic Psychology serves to strengthen the relationship between your mental, physical,
emotional awareness--it allows for a powerful awakening of your individual, inner truth, and a
potentially faster, more integrated recovery of whatever is ailing you.
Whether you are overwhelmed with anxiety, depression, grief, or find yourself in a challenging
life transition or situation, my goal will be to assist you in integrating the pieces of your past
that may be interfering with your present, as well as guiding you towards paving the way for a
future that more resembles how you aspire to be fulfilled in your life.
My task is to help you find wholeness from within, through broadening your capacity to accept
change and come to healthy terms with the history of your life, as well as help you
discover, perhaps for the first time, a promising unfolding of your future.
Therapy supports the clearing up of
psychological and somatic "clutter"--
It helps to pave the road to
achieving greater mind-sight and
to building the strength,
desire and will to create again--
or to RECREATE a life that
has always been yearning
to be lived.
