Are you struggling with pain associated with anxiety, depression or feeling stuck? Do past traumas or feelings of low self-esteem challenge your relationships?
Psychodynamic work allows clients to identify how patterns in thoughts, beliefs, and emotions- both conscious and unconscious- affect our everyday lives. By gaining a deeper understanding of our inner lives, past and present, we live a more full, rich, and satisfied life.
A progressive form of therapy, integrative work makes use of both psychoanalytic and behavioral techniques to tailor treatment options to the individual. The client and therapist explore how a client might approach a particular dilemma, learning new skills and insights on the road to greater self-discovery and empowerment.
Stressed? The disconnect we often feel can be softened when we are grounded, connected, and confident. Somatic work is the reconnection of mind, body, and soul, often revealing our intuition or inner guide.
Our sense of trust is reinforced when we utilize our sensations and observations as tools, and learn to communicate effectively with ourselves and others. Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy is one component of Mind-Body connection that works primarily with building awareness of thoughts, creating agency and power in our world.
Healing from trauma involves connecting with the inner experience in a manageable, predictable, and safe way. Because trauma is so individualized and personal, it matters how a therapist attends to a client’s lived experience. Attunement, pacing, and presence are key to supporting a client in the transformation toward a creative, vital, peaceful life, full of connection.
Instead of re-traumatizing a client through well-intentioned but ill-informed practices, a trauma-informed therapist will lead brain structures back into balance, replacing surviving with thriving.

Rather than a social construction or a repetition of family (learned) relationships, attachment-based therapy has the unique opportunity to explore relationships as they are happening. This dynamic offers practice and insight into the vast world of needs: an attempt at meeting our own emotional needs and those of the relationship.
