I am a leading authority on healing shame. I co-created the Healing Shame – Lyon/Rubin method and am the Co-Director of the Center for Healing Shame, a continuing education provider that offers workshops to therapists and other helping professionals. In my private practice, I developed therapy techniques integrating somatic and expressive processes to work with the all-pervasive shame and trauma that underlie toxic family dynamics, depression and eating disorders. I integrate Emotionally Focused Therapy and AEDP with Drama Therapy, Hakomi, Focusing and Expressive Arts. I work with the imposter syndrome and voracious inner critics.
I work somatically to explore sensations in the body, such as panic attacks or anxiety, and help clients understand the messages their body is giving them. I work with dreams, symbols, art and movement through Drama Therapy, Hakomi, and Jungian dream processes to help people access their unconscious. Children like Drama Therapy—play is their native language!
Many couples come to me after communication has broken down, sometimes so far that one has had an affair. What they fear may be the end of a relationship can be a time to look at their attachment longings and heal old wounds and deep shame. To learn more about shame, download my free “Strengths, Resilience and Hidden Shame Guidebook” at www.SheilaRubin.com.
