Integrative Somatic PsychoTherapy for Sexual Trauma, Narcissistic Abuse, and Embodied Sexuality
it was when i stopped searching for home within others and lifted the foundations of home within myself
i found there were no roots more intimate
than those between a mind and body
that have decided to be whole.

What if you could be feel more fully alive? Are you having problems enjoying relationships, or finding joy in your life? Does your pain of past trauma get in the way of living a fully embodied life? Do you have issues with anxiety and depression that get in the way of daily functioning? My techniques incorporate depth and somatic trauma therapy approaches in discovering the essence of the inner landscape of what it means to be authentically you. Together we can create a safer place to live inside of you, that will change how you experience life, sex and relationships.
What is Integrative Somatic Psychotherapy?
Integrative Somatic Psychotherapy is an intuitive holistic approach that combines Talk Therapy with body-centered interventions to unlock deeply held body held memories that affect the nervous system.
These "held" memories can result in Anxiety, Depression,Chronic pain and Illnesses, as well as have a detrimental effect on your sexual experiences. Together we explore the landscape of your nervous system to determine the sensations, beliefs and feelings that may have become coupled or stuck, thus creating a never-ending loop of fight or flight experiences. As we slowly unravel these wired pathways, you will gain confidence in relational and life affirming ways. Opening yourself up to joy and connectedness
Integrative Somatic Psychotherapy is very effective in working with PTSD, Trauma, childhood emotional wounds, anger, anxiety and depression.
The approach primarily works with your nervous system, but also may include movement and mindfulness. I use techniques from Somatic Practices, IFS, Depth Psychology, and Dance/Movement based practices.
