Are you feeling out of sorts?
So many of us feel disconnected from ourselves and each other. Truth is, it’s our birthright to have deep connections inside a body that feels vital and alive. We are born to connect and live active, engaged lives well into old age but you have to put in the effort. Therapy works to help you create the life you want.
My name is Kerry and I help people get back in touch with their inner knowing, which is the driving force behind a fulfilling life. My style is informed by 25 years in the wellness field. Specifically, I am trained in experiential, psychodynamic, depth-oriented and mindfulness-based approaches.
Somatic Depth Therapy
I help people get “unstuck” and reconnect with what matters most. I offer a unique approach called Mindful Embodied Therapy. This style is inspired by Eastern philosophy, neurobiology, somatic and depth psychology. It is a powerful path to self-awareness, growth and transformation.
Depth psychology takes a whole-person approach to healing. Body, mind and soul are equal and active routes to healing. It understands that we are meaning-seeking beings who suffer when our lives feel adrift. It also recognizes that the past is still active within us, creating patterns and diminishing our freedom of choice.
Psychodynamic therapy uncovers the patterns driving our behavior. Its goal is to understand how behavior and mood are influenced by thoughts and feelings. We do this by increasing awareness and compassion.
Relationships are an important piece of a psychodynamic approach. Exploring your relationship with your Self is the work of therapy. This breaks patterns that are no longer serving you and lays the groundwork for new ways of being.
As emotions follow thoughts, the stories we tell ourselves matter. It is never the other way around. I use mindfulness-based techniques along with active imagination, free-flow writing and dream work to help you listen.
Each of us has a moment when life looks us square in the eye and says, “Now what?” The choices we make in those moments determines the quality of our lives. Decisions big and small, we’re all engaged in the task of learning to become more fully human. As we look within, we see that every choice we have made (or not made) has brought us to where we are now.
