Ayala Kalisher currently has a waitlist for new clients.
You are likely here because you are in discomfort or experiencing longing for things to be different. This human experience can be messy and vast. I won't claim to be an expert on you or your lived experience but I will meet you from a place of compassion and explore the terrain with you as we find your path through. Themes people come to explore with me include: •Attachment trauma and CPTSD • Challenges with connection and in relationships (friendships, romantic relationships or familial) • Self-exploration and empowerment • Issues around sex and sexuality including but not limited to shame, pain, confusion or disconnection
• Desire to have a more fulfilling relationship to your body and sexuality • Healing from past traumas, especially around sexual assault • Psychedelic integration • Wanting a somatic (body based therapy) approach to self exploration and healing. • Navigating ENM dynamics • I work with individuals, couples, and relationships of all configurations.
If you choose for us to work together in-person, I can include somatic and touch work informed by my training in Relational Somatic Healing and Hakomi. Touch can be a very powerful way of healing when combined with talk therapy. Touch, while completely optional, can be especially effective while treating developmental trauma and preverbal attachment wounds.
“You are capable of so much on your own but at this moment you know that you need some help. And this is a great place to begin therapy. ”
