Psychotherapy — Somatic Experiencing
Welcome and thank you for opening this page. It is not easy to find a psychotherapist. It takes courage and awareness. I hear you. Congratulations on wanting to get better, on being curious about how you can change your life, on reaching out. Maybe you are struggling with symptoms like depression or anxiety. Maybe it is relationship difficulties. Are you dealing with an overwhelming experience that has paralyzed you in your tracks or has left you completely on edge? Maybe it is about growth and finding yourself during an introspective journey.
There are many reasons to look for help: and you are not alone in your quest. The good thing about therapy is that it can really work. My job is not just about listening and nodding and saying “uh huh”. It is about establishing an alliance with you and working as a team. And it is about processing what arises using all the tools we have and all the resources you possess. I work with a mind-body-spirit approach, aimed at restoring healthier functioning across the board. The work usually involves looking at our attachment to our caretakers during childhood and the circumstances that surrounded the first years of our lives. It may likely also reveal instances of trauma, past and present. I use the tools that fit you best in the moment. Two of my favorites are Body Awareness and Somatic Experiencing®: a cutting-edge psychophysiological approach that promotes nervous system regulation by honoring the body’s organic wisdom.
You can get back to the “original” you: the one you were meant to be with all its glory and truth, the one that slipped away because circumstances got in the way and you got confused or even lost. This is about who we are right now, with our struggles, symptoms and crises. And it is about who we can become by doing this work with compassion and respect. I will support you in this journey.
Feel free to look around the site to get a feel of who I am and how I work. A good outcome depends on the right choice of therapist and a proper treatment. Don’t hesitate to contact me with your questions.
