Somatic Psychotherapy

Somatic Psychotherapy Img 1It all feels like too much.

In one moment, you feel okay, and then in the next, you are flooded with emotion.

It happens so fast that you can’t explain it or control it.

Anger, disappointment, forgetfulness, despair, and anxiety suddenly show up.

It’s hard to enjoy life or your relationships. Something isn’t right.

You are in protection mode.

Some emotions are too difficult to bear. We learn to bury them and create a life that feels like a façade.

Those emotions got pushed down for so long, and you had to find ways to protect yourself from getting too close to those wounds.

Feelings live in the body. Even though you might have become an expert at pushing them down, when you get triggered, you might feel shame, doubt, and the “I’m not good enough” story.

Your body carries the wounds and the solution.

You did the best you could, and I am so glad you found ways to survive; otherwise, you would not be here right now.

It is time to stop trying to “suck it up.” I can tell you from personal experience and my work with clients that pushing all that stuff down only prolongs the pain.

Using Somatic therapy techniques, like Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy and Internal Family Systems, we will take a “bottom-up” approach, focusing on sensations in your body. We will safely explore and process feelings, memories, and beliefs connected to earlier experiences.

We get to the root of the issues together, so we can understand the behaviors that helped you survive, process the feelings with compassion, and discover your authentic path.

I will also teach you to resource your own body for healing with somatic techniques like the Emotional Freedom Technique or Tapping, which can help you regulate your nervous system whenever you need it.

It’s time…

Somatic therapy offers an opportunity for lasting change.

Our work will help you rewire your nervous system, something talking alone can’t do.
