Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC, MA, MEd, MLS
In this way, I work with individuals/
using the non-verbal frameworks, lenses, and skills with which I am familiar--not to build more boxes, nor just devise more fancy ways to categorize & judge--but rather to open, and explore collaboratively, more facets of what may be going on for you (in terms of YOUR OWN body, mind, spirit, and emotions.
I find therapy most potent, important, and meaningful when there is a mix of: compassion/spaciousness (non-judgment); curiosity/levity (as appropriate); & choicefulness. From my background in Somatic Counseling/Body Psychotherapy, I make use of my own body, and body-based (a.k.a. somatic) tracking, applied moment-to-moment in the room with clients. Sometimes this is as simple as noticing the breath, or bringing attention (and other options) to bear when something shifts. There are also many extensive toolboxes of potential somatic interventions that expand the range, and the richness, of what a session together may include.
