Body Centered Psychotherapy
Getting out of your head
A powerful factor in anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, unfulfilling relationships, and feeling helpless in life is from being stuck in our heads, not knowing how to get out.
...and into your body.
Modern research tells us that to heal the mind and heart, we must include the body and it’s moment to moment experiencing.
When the body-mind and heart are in connection, the road to healing and happiness becomes clear.
With my skillful guidance, I can support you and give you the tools your need in your journey towards a more fulfilling life.
Many times, what people need is not a brilliant mind that speaks but a special heart that listens.
– F. Scott Fitzgerald
WHEN TALKING ABOUT YOUR PROBLEMS
IS NOT ENOUGH.
The Hakomi method is an elegant, comprehensive, and uniquely effective approach to working with long standing patterns that prevent us from living fully.
TO HEAL IS TO MAKE WHOLE
By combining the approaches of Body-Centered Psychotherapy, Mindfulness, and Western psychology, The Hakomi method is able to treat the entire person – body, heart, and brain.
Hakomi recognizes that in healing, all of the body’s responses, reactions, and overall experiences need to be included and valued as much as thoughts and our intellect.
In order to change patterns and beliefs that we struggle to change, we must discover what is driving them. By slowing down and investigating our body's responses to the issues at hand, we can start to discover what even moments ago was unknown to us about what is really going on. From there, we start becoming skillfully adept at being able to include internal referencing to our feelings, emotions and sensations in how we are in life.
For Hakomi to be most effective, there must be a true sense trust and openness between therapist and client. This rapport creates a safe container for self discovery to become more experiential and not just intellectual.

The mind is like the wind, the body is like the sand.
If you want to see how the wind is blowing,
pay attention to the sand.
