Many clients come to me after years of "talk" therapy when they realize that they are still disconnected from their body or still overwhelmed with their own emotions. These clients are often intelligent, creative and successful professionals who secretly struggle with low self-esteem, relationship problems, anxiety/depression and psychosomatic problems. As a Gestalt an Somatic Psychotherapist, my work involves a present-moment approach to help you to redefine how you live in your world- and express yourself. With me you will learn to balance your emotional nervous system and renegotiate old patterns that no longer serve you.

My approach comes from years as a professional dancer and exercise physiologist, and from the last 15 years as a somatic psychotherapist. By learning how to become more embodied you will learn how to balance your nervous system, gain a better sense of confidence, focus, and ability to connect with others...by renegotiating how you think, feel and act.

Sometimes we feel over-sensitive and overwhelmed by the people in our lives or feel disconnected from ourselves and others. By engaging in an embodied approach in treatment, I can help you to increase your resilience and balance your emotional nervous system right at the root of your suffering, to develop self-compassion that turns into enlivened generosity!

Jennifer Frank Tantia's Groups

Somatic Supervision for Therapists

This group is for new and seasoned therapists who are interested in using somatic work in their practice, but do not have adequate supervision in the somatic sector. No experience necessary, but a willingness for self-reflection and experiential learning are required. Please call for further information.

More about this group

Authentic Movement

Authentic Movement is a process of self-inquiry that allows the unconscious to move through the body to become conscious awareness. With eyes closed, you wait from an impulse from your body to move, and follow your body's impulses while witnessing yourself. Interpersonal issues, creative problem solving and often spiritual questions arise as new insight about your life emerge through your body's wisdom.
