"Tired of feeling down, anxious, or simply not your best? Ready to do more than just talk about it? If so, body oriented therapy may be for you. With body oriented therapy, we will explore not only your thoughts and emotions, but also the physical sensations, postures, and gestures that come with them. This is important because tuning into your body can help you understand your feelings, thoughts, and life experiences more deeply. This understanding can support you in being the person you want to be and creating the life you want to have. The first step to change is becoming aware of how you are feeling, thinking, and being now. "
