Announcement icon I am offering ongoing online, phone and in-person sessions based on Covid safety considerations in this area.
Are you feeling stuck, anxious or experiencing the same-old challenges in your relationships? Somatic Therapy can safely get to the root of the issues and support your system to release these old patterns. I love working with all types of people, new to therapy, seasoned clients and everyone in between. My areas of passion and focus are attachment wounding, chronic pain, sexualized and domestic violence and personal and professional growth and development. I have a lot of experience with mindfulness based stress reduction and building capacity to feel "alive" in the body. www.resiliencesomatics.ca
Relational Somatic Therapy is a counselling therapy for healing trauma. This therapy is leading edge, incorporating the newest research regarding neuroplasticity (how the brain changes) interpersonal neurobiology (how our relationships affect us and our nervous systems) body-based trauma resolution, and attachment theory.
If you are tired of experiencing the internal difficulty with your life situation, reach out. I offer present, clear and safe space for all folks. I look forward to working together to resolve the issues that give you pain, and increase your capacity for a present, engaged and passionate life.
