Practice Description:
During the time of COVID-19, I am connecting with clients online, on Zoom and doing Integrative Somatic Body-Focused Healing Work, where we can feel a sense of being met and can co-regulate together. Where we can hear each other’s voice tone and see facial expressions that signal to our bodies that we are seen and that we matter.

What you can expect during your Online Integrative Somatic Nervous System Therapeutic Healing sessions together:

1) Time and space that is for you – to slow down – away from racing thoughts, body pain, symptoms, anxiety or fear.

2) From the comfort of your home – you can choose to be seated in a comfortable soft chair or have your session lying in your bed – with blankets and pillows – with your eyes closed to focus on the deep feelings and sensations found in your body during a session.

3) You will pay attention to your body – notice where your energy flows, along with your emotions, sensations, sound, movement and the power of somatic co-regulation.

4) Process long-held trauma patterns held in the nervous system – working with the difficult or intolerable feelings and noticing them moment by moment.

5) By doing this type of body-focused work, we are creating new pathways in your nervous system – slowly and over time – to begin to respond with new awareness and possibility – in new ways to racing thoughts, anxiety, panic, body pain and difficult emotions.

6) Cultivating body-focused resilience allows us to feel more ease in our nervous system – less reactive, stressed, fearful and anxious – now and always, in our body, mind and heart.

I hold your heart and soul with care, kindness and sensitivity. Deciding to work with a psychotherapist is a courageous step towards understanding yourself, sorting out what may be troubling you and moving where you want to go. We will go at your pace, in your time.

Developing a solid relationship is an important first step of our work together. I will see you, perhaps in ways that you've never been seen. We will understand together where you may be struggling and help you see through the layers of your life to see the beauty that exists within you.

I care about you and respect your personal commitment to your own growth and success. Space and time will be provided for your emotional understanding and personal growth in ways that are different from anything else you may have experienced in the past.

Everyone experiences emotional pain and feels stuck or lost at different times in life. We will work together to understand you as a person, as part of a relationship and in social situations, as well as within your career or job.

We will help you understand why you may be experiencing disconnection, anxiety, depression, addictions, frustration, anger, sadness or loneliness in your life. We will also take time to understand why you may be repeating some patterns in your life over and over again, when you may not want to.

Through awareness and self-understanding, you will begin to know what you want, and how you can get there. This is where happiness begins; asking for support in your life and finding out for yourself what is holding you back and what might work best for you moving forward.

Sessions are held weekly or bi-weekly, in-person or via Skype, to provide you with as much support and continuity as you need.

Additional Comments: My approach helps you uncover troubling habits, behaviours and symptoms, so they can be relieved in a more permanent way.

My style is relational, calm, focused, and non-judgmental. I create a confidential space to explore the issues and challenges that are most important to you. Every person is unique, and one size does not fit all. I incorporate ways of working that are appropriate to your needs and goals while I am interested in understanding what is happening for you now, and how your past experiences affect your present life.

Some of the ways of working in session that may be explored are; understanding your how your emotions are related to the somatic responses in your body. Learning how to "ground" yourself so that you can understand your thoughts and speak they way you wish to. At times you may feel that words just don't help when trying to describe your feelings and we can work out more creative ways for you such as drawing or gentle movements. Finally you may want tools to help you reduce the feelings that seem to be guiding how you are in the world and gentle energy psychology or tapping sessions may be helpful.

Focusing on helpful suggestions such as clear honest communication, keeping consistent appointments, and being committed to your process will help develop a deeper sense of trust in your therapy, which is vital to your achieving your goals.
