Leisha Warton Douglas
Counselor, MA, MEd, PhD
If you are an adolescent or adult experiencing a life transition, spiritual and/or relationship crisis and are tired of just talking about or analyzing your issues, body-centered psychotherapy can help. You will learn to study how you organize particular present experience like a tension pattern,habitual gesture, feeling or image. Since most behavior is automatic and based on habits and core material, body psychotherapy helps you recognize and work with these core patterns mentally, emotionally and physically. You will deepen your capacity for self understanding, free yourself from limited habitual patterns, communicate more effectively and create more satisfying options.
My specialty is synthesizing traditional psychodynamic and analytic psychology with yoga, meditation and somatic psychotherapy.
Due to the fact that I am also published poet and writer, my therapeutic work is particularly suited to those working in the arts or in creatively oriented businesses.
