Depth Psychology is rooted in Freudian and Jungian notions that unconscious factors affect our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. By exploring the unconscious through active imagination, dreamwork, shadow work, and soul exploration, one can better know one's self. In the depth tradition, we explore the world mythopoetically, allowing us to understand and make meaning of our lives through myth, metaphor, and poetry.
Cognitive & Dialectic Behavior
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy helps clients to addresses thought patterns that are no longer helpful or have become harmful. By understanding the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behavior, we can work to break old patterns and begin to live new stories. I am also trained in Trauma Focused CBT as a modality to work with trauma.
Dialectic Behavioral Therapy focuses on four key aspects: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness to help clients deal with issues from depression to PTSD and has been shown to improve self-confidence and strengthen relationships.
Soma is an ancient Greek word that relates to the body. Through somatic practices we understand and work with emotions as they live in the body as well as engage the body in healing efforts. These practices can be particularly helpful for people dealing with depression, anxiety , grief or trauma. By connecting with the body we are able to tap into its innate wisdom and our soul's connection to the Earth and the Cosmos.
