Body Mind Therapy merges movement, touch, and talk, to walk the bridges that join the physical, mental, and emotional.
Also referred to as a type of Yoga Therapy, Body Mind Therapy allows you to explore the many facets of you- the familiar, the not-so-familiar, the light, the dark, and all the shades in between, with gentle guidance in a safe space and unconditionally loving presence.
This work is different from traditional counseling in that it is non-directive, self-reflective, non-diagnostic, and non-prescriptive. We don't do the work to "fix" you- You do not need "fixing". We do the work to allow you to process what you’re ready to process, to enhance your experience of yourself and your life, and to gain a deeper awareness and understanding of what's happening in and around you, of how you relate to yourself and others, and of who you are, right now.
Each session is as unique as you are, and is completely catered to your needs in the moment. Sessions can be hands on and involve supportive touch, they can be low-touch, or completely no-touch. You may feel like talking, or you may not say a word the whole session. Whatever shows up for you in the moment is absolutely okay, and will be honored and respected.
Body Mind Therapy is deeply transformative work on it's own, and is also often engaged alongside traditional psychotherapy, and counseling for substance abuse, eating disorders, and PTSD. Whether you're dealing with pain, stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, recovery, you want a better understand yourself and your path, or you feel like you just need something in your life to change, this work is for you.
I offer in person sessions at two locations in West and Central Los Angeles. I am also available to travel to you, if coming to me is not an option. Online sessions are also available, though I do recommend at least one in person session to start.
