Welcome to Body-Centered Healing.
Are you seeking greater depth and meaning in your life? Feeling held back by the past? Or emotionally overwhelmed? Are you in pain? Body-Centered Healing is process-oriented counseling and coaching designed for discriminating clients who seek an in-depth, soulful approach to healing and empowerment during important life transitions.
Transition and change are exciting, challenging—and sometimes scary. It is common for anxiety, depression, and disorientation—even physical aches and pains—to surface as the necessity for new learning stretches us past our comfort zones. Successfully navigating external change, frequently means breaking new internal ground by diving even deeper than we have in the past.
Body-Centered Healing gives you powerful tools for transitions.
We’ve all experienced the frustration of making a new choice, only to discover the same old outcomes. Body-Centered Healing can help you make meaningful changes so your deeper needs are finally met. If you find yourself confronted with the type of change you never wanted, or are resistant to the kind of change you really need, we can work toward acceptance and integration, and the ability to move toward fulfillment.
How can I help you? Here are some of the many life transitions I’ve helped clients navigate:
Major life passages (launching into adulthood, career changes, marriage, children, moving, divorce, mid-life crisis, empty nest, retirement, loss of a loved one)
Creativity (feeling stuck or restless, chronic procrastination, lack of follow through, fear of failure and/or success, accepting criticism, project support and mentoring, authentic self-expression)
Relationship (communication, intimacy, weak or rigid boundaries, betrayal, self-care, co-dependency, anger and projection, family dynamics, effective parenting)
Healing and Health (trauma resolution, recovery from addiction, depression, anxiety, chronic pain and illness, self-acceptance, forgiveness)
Aging (fears, unfulfilled dreams, grief, unfinished business, physical and psychological loss, facing mortality, finding peace)
Spiritual Awakening and Finding Purpose (Who am I? Where am I going? What can I believe in? How can I feel more connected and engaged? How can I release my attachments?)
Break through old patterns. Tap into new possibilities.
Body-Centered Healing is soulful work. The process breaks through to deeper levels than coaching or traditional psychotherapy. It’s not enough to simply talk about feelings or develop a list of goals. Dynamic and intuitive techniques will empower you to experience insights directly through your body as well as your mind. This new felt-understanding inspires creative resolution to stubborn patterns that have a negative impact on thinking, feeling, relating, health, and behavior. Achieving your goals becomes a natural by-product of the Body-Centered Healing process.
Create your life from the inside out.
Body-Centered Healing integrates the principles of creativity with the healing process. Even if we are not all working artists, we are always creating our lives. Deep healing opens a hidden treasure trove of memory, wisdom, and experience from which to draw inspiration and direction. Everything you need for satisfying self-expression can be found within your own yet-to-be discovered depths.
Go from resistance to resilience.
Body-Centered Healing is compassionate and highly focused. The process gently draws out fear and resistance, softening rigid barriers that keep you disconnected from yourself and your passions. As your resilience grows, as you successfully acquire skills for navigating change, you’ll be delighted to discover new capabilities for realizing deferred dreams.
