"If you long for connection with others but relational trauma is still getting in the way (even after lots of talk therapy), I invite you to try body-centered work with me. As a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, I guide clients to follow what's happening on a moment-to-moment basis and help them finally find protection, safety, security and nurturing. This work specifically targets traumatic patterns in the nervous system and gently, compassionately creates more space for ease and connection in relationship."

"Life without struggle would be pretty boring, but too much can keep people from experiencing the life they want. My entire career has been focused helping adolescents, families, and adults understand patterns that get in the way of joy and connection. We come to believe that those patterns are who we are. But they are not. They are just how our childhoods, traumas, and experiences have shaped us. It's not easy reshaping how we think about ourselves and others. Meaningful therapy is hard. I don't do therapy to teach new skills. I want my clients to heal in ways that reshape how they see themselves and the world. "

Throughout life, I have learned lessons about the gifts we receive when we take the chance to talk honestly with trusted individuals. It takes a ton of bravery to be vulnerable (at our own pace), but that is how we achieve the safety we are looking for to thrive, and where we build the compassion and sense of belonging we want in relationships.

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Asheville using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Asheville are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Asheville you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Asheville and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Asheville or family therapy in Asheville.
