Body Psychotherapy: Body Psychotherapy (BP), or Somatic Psychotherapy, describes therapeutic applications that honor the Brain-Body connection, and that much of our emotional experience occurs in the tissues of the body. Contrary to the sound of it, Body Psychotherapy (BP) does not indicate touch, although minimal therapeutic touch may be involved with client permission (i.e. a hand on the back). As a Somatic Counseling Psychotherapist, I have attained levels of training set forth by the United States Association of Body Psychotherapists (USABP) for Clinical and Somatic Practice. Somatic influences include Focusing, Hakomi, Senosrimotor Psychotherapy, Movment Cycle, 5-Rhythms Dance and Dance-Movement Therapy, Mind-Body Centering, Developmental Movement, Kestenberg Fundamentals.

Synergetic Play Therapy: Children may have difficulty finding words for their experiences, but they fluently speak the language of play. Synergetic Play Therapy (SPT) uses neurosicence- and attachment-based techniques to help children express and explore their emotional perceptions while learning new coping skills. I am SPT Certified. More information can be found at https://synergeticplaytherapy.com/.
Trauma Therapies: I offer several trauma and trauma-informed therapies to support you in your return to wholeness. These therapies take into account the psychobiological effects that acute stress and chronic/developmental stress can have on our bodies and minds. They have been developed to connect you back to the wisdom that inherently lies in your mind, body and spirit.
- EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) uses bilateral processing-- or eye movements-- that access traumatic memories and sensations that are stuck in the body and brain. Visit www.emdr.com for more information.
- Brainspotting is another highly-effective modality based on healing trauma in the brain-body using the visual field. For more information, visit www.brainspotting.com.
- Sensorimotor Psychotherapy combines Somatic, attachment and neuroscience-based tenets to support the client in reprocessing traumatic events. Visit www.sensorimotorpsychotherapy.org for more information.
