I am a mental health and school counselor passionate about supporting the growth of children and young adults. I am experienced with both school-age children, young adults, and adults. I have also spent a lifetime in the world of professional dance and the creative arts. My experience in dance and the body highly influences my therapeutic lens. I view utilizing all bodily senses in my counseling techniques as integral to client growth. I take an integrative approach to my work; in one session we may talk, play, draw, or move. Some moments may be more directive and some may be client-led.

In addition to being a psychotherapist, I have worked as a bodyworker, massage, and movement therapist for the last 20 years.
Are you suffering from the effects of PTSD, anxiety, depression, sudden loss, and/or chronic pain? If so body-oriented psychotherapy may help facilitate your recovery. By working to address the root causes of nervous system imbalance, a body-psychotherapy approach can empower you with tools and skills to re-negotiate and resolve difficult and traumatic experiences. My approach in therapy is client-centered and my work is just to facilitate and provide the optimal conditions for healing to take place. I also hope to impart knowledge and skills for people to work with themselves effectively outside of therapy.

My practice is designed to give you the therapeutic tools and processing experiences necessary to bring balance to your nervous system. This approach can be helpful for clients who suffer the multi-systemic impacts of chronic and acute stress which can show up as anxiety disorders, PTSD and C-PTSD. People seeking support for anxiety related muscle tension, emotional dysregulation and those who identify as "highly sensitive" may also benefit. If it interests you, we can incorporate mindfulness, meditation, somatic movement , yoga based relaxation training or expressive techniques including role play into your sessions.

I work in the present moment, attentive to content, process and relational aspects of the session. Aside from talk therapy, I facilitate change through experiential exercises such as meditation, movement , body and somatic awareness, gestalt role play, EMDR and cognitive and behavioral mindfulness. I am interested in how contact boundaries can be restored and built to a healthy state, creating a stronger and confident self.

With a backgound in dance , massage therapy, yoga, and meditation, I integrate the healing arts and psychotherapy.
I think of therapy as a way of freeing ourselves from the obstacles which prevent us from moving forward in our lives. Frequently these obstacles present themselves to us in the challenges of the outer world--in problems at work, in difficult relationships, in adapting to life changes, or in the sudden impact of a traumatic event. And sometimes what stands in the way of our freedom and happiness lies within us, as negative thought patterns, conflicting or confusing emotions, and unexpressed feelings--all of which can result in depression, anxiety, chronic illness, low self esteem--burdens we often carry alone.

In addition to therapy, I am a certified personal trainer, if you are struggling with exercise compulsion, aversion, or bulimia, I'd love to accompany you on your journey to find joy and balance in movement .
Eating disorders are like chasing a rabbit down a hole in pursuit of something you lost. One day, you realize what you lost was yourself. Food, exercise, & body image are treacherous to navigate in a society that overvalues appearance and that values some body types over others. It can be especially challenging if you identify as autistic, an ADHDer, a highly sensitive person, and/or a human who wrestles with gender dysphoria. Who you are is a gift. You do not have to hide or become less of who you are. Through therapy we will uncover and use your unique strengths to move towards growth and healing.

Those who come to me are typically looking to become more confident and self assured, feel happier, communicate clearly and confidently, ease anxiety stemming from public speaking or interpersonal interaction, and/or find a fulfilling relationship or recover from a bad one. I am an action oriented coach, and use exercises and tangible tools to increase "stickiness," and forming of new neural pathways. I want to be clear that I am a coach, not a psychologist, therefore if you are experiencing any significant psychological difficulties, I suggest www.drhelenekarlin.com.
