Paula Carino, MA, LMHC, Counselor in New York
The best psychotherapy is a working partnership that honors our innate healing abilities. Within the context of a caring and respectful relationship, therapy can create opportunities to resolve past pain, balance emotions, and experience the spontaneous joy and energetic flow we were born with.
Using a present-moment mindful awareness of the body and attachment styles, together we can soothe and regulate an overactive nervous system, address distortions of self and identity, and build resources and resilience to face life's challenges.
I combine elements of traditional talk therapy with body-centered approaches and Ericksonian hypnosis. Our work will be informed by yogic philosophy, mindfulness meditation, and interpersonal neurobiology. We follow the energy of the moment, enhancing awareness of behavioral patterns that no longer serve, and increasing wholeness, resilience, and integration.
