Personal Statement

While I do offer talk therapy, I also blend psychotherapy, expressive arts therapy and somatic bodywork. Expressive arts therapy can look like anything from me having you choose images (rather than using words) to describe your experience, to drama therapy techniques by which I facilitate you having a conversation with a “part” of yourself that continues a frustrating habit. Somatic work can involve standing practices that reflect back what your body (you) are doing, as opposed to what you think you are doing. It can also mean me doing hands-on Strozzi bodywork with you.

Somatic bodywork is done fully clothed, lying face up on a bodywork table and employs touch and conversation to support a shift from contraction, lack of choices and rigid patterns, to openness and embodiment, enabling greater choice and response from the present, rather than past fears or traumas.

I offer my clients an environment characterized by confidentiality, acceptance, and a collaborative relationship based on empathy, curiosity, and respect. Together, we mobilize your resilience, restore your body as a safe, resourced place for you to live within and from, and regenerate the space for you to have a rich inner- and outer-life.
