PRYT

Do you feel stuck or overwhelmed by stress or anxiety? Has your life been impacted by a traumatic event or a difficult childhood? Are you interested in gentle, mindfulness-based body-integrative approaches to support growth and healing? 

If you answered “yes”, I’d love to work with you! 

Chronic or toxic stress, trauma (however big or small), and challenging upbringings can derail the nervous system, leaving us feeling tense, anxious, spinning in negative thought patterns, or feeling disconnected from our bodies. These experiences can impact our work, our families, our relationships, and our sense of aliveness.

Here’s how I can help!

At the heart of my work is the belief that all people have the innate capacity to move toward healing and growth when in the right conditions. 

Our work together starts with the development of a collaborative, respectful, and trusting therapeutic relationship. We then focus on helping you feel a sense of safety and security in your body with the help of orienting to the present-moment through your senses and by engaging self-regulation practices that you can use in your daily life. Once a sense of internal safety and present-centered awareness has been established, we can begin the work of gently processing dysregulation and traumatic activation in the nervous system and body in a way that respects your inner capacity and self-agency. 

My approach is embodied and holistic, rather than cognitive. I integrate Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy and Somatic Experiencing® into my sessions, along with self-regulation practices, mindfulness, and breath-work to help people feel present, calm and safe in their bodies.

Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy (PRYT) combines dialogue, embodied mindfulness, movement, supported postures, and sometimes touch, to support you in exploring your present-moment experience.

The Somatic Experiencing® (SE™) approach works slowly and gently with the body and nervous system to process trauma and to increase tolerance for difficult bodily sensations and suppressed emotions.

I usually recommend new clients book a package of four sessions after their initial consultation to see if the work is a good fit for you and if we are a good fit for each other. Sessions can be spread out as you need, although I usually recommend starting with weekly or bi-weekly sessions in the beginning. Sessions move at a pace that works for you, and you will leave with take-home practices to support continued growth and healing between sessions.
