Practice Description: Please see my web site www.movingforwardplc.com

My practice provides psychotherapy services for children, teenagers, adults and couples. In therapy we use a variety of modalities to access the underlying issues or messages beneath ones physical symptoms. By creating a safe space, observing body language or methods of play, helping one to relax, asking good questions, we can begin to reveal unspoken experiences. This as the first mode of healing, through insight oriented therapy by means of talk or play. This body-mind communication is the first step in the healing process. Feelings assocciated with ones symptoms begin to arise. One might get sad, angry, tense, relaxed, anxious, powerful, weak, fearful, frustrated to name a few. By allowing those feelings to surface and begin to present in a therapeutic setting, this will help to release tension, and anxiety in the body. We teach our clients to directly express the underlying issue through words, not symptoms. This creates an increase in the insight of the self, as well as increased self esteem and a decrease in physical symptoms.
