About

I have been working successfully with depression, anxiety, PTSD, somatic and body image issues since the year 2000. 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.
Everyday we have more evidence that the body stores trauma and unfinished business and can affect one's capability to have a fulfilling life. I bring an unique perspective into therapy, by teaching how one can reclaim and understand somatic signals as a resource for healing and coping with stress.
I also serve as an adjunct faculty at the George Washington University. Please check www.gestaltdance.com for more information. Together, we can create a safe place for you to move towards healing and get to know your authentic self. I look forward hearing from you, Giselle
