Announcement icon All of my client sessions are being conducted using Zoom video conferencing. I have used Zoom for a year and find it effective and easy.
Our past presents itself in the present moment. Whether it is anxiety, panic, pain, addictions, trauma, loss or grief - we explore together what gets in the way of living a life worth living. I integrate Somatic Experiencing, NARM, EMDR, Voice Dialogue, ACT, and mindfulness practices into a multidimensional approach to discover how to help you realize a satisfying life, the life you want to live.
I am a relational body therapist certified in Somatic Experiencing, the use of touch for trauma, NARM, and am level 2 trained in PACT for couple therapy. My work is relational, somatic oriented, mindfulness based, present time oriented, non-pathologizing, and psychodynamically informed. These are the skills I use to support our natural impulse to heal.
Happiness and the elimination of suffering are the primary motivators for change and emotional growth. It's not what you do, it is how you feel about it that is most important. Life is short so we should have the opportunity to live it fully.

Michael Shiffman's Groups

Mindfulness and Anxiety Group - Encino 91436

This group is open to adults of all genders and orientations and is grounded in mindfulness and somatic practices to support intimacy and the resolution of reactivity. The group will integrate emotional sharing, skills development and mindfulness with an emphasis on realtime dynamics among the group participants. My orientation is present-time and mindfulness oriented, somatic and psychodynamically informed, and emphasizes relational and intersubjective processes.

Starting on January 22, 2020.
