Are You Feeling Out of Sorts?

Meeting the demands of life can often mean living out of balance. Yet it’s our birthright to live joyfully inside a body that feels vital and alive. Those are more than just words to me. I believe we are born to connect, play, and live active, meaningful lives well into old age. The key is learning how to manage and discharge stress. Somatic therapy can help with that.

My name is Kerry and I help people live in harmony with who and how they want to be. Vibrant health is my passion. I entered the health and wellness field in the mid-90’s and never left. I’m trained in experiential, psychodynamic, and somatic psychotherapy. These modalities are then filtered through a lens of yoga. 

This website is full of articles that reflect my scope of practice. I encourage you to check them out. If you do, you’ll see that I utilize the body to free the mind. That’s what lights me up. I call my integrative approach Mindful Embodied Therapy. It’s a mosaic of my studies of mind, body and soul.

Somatic work can be an adjunct or stand-alone treatment for a wide range of concerns such as depression, anxiety, trauma, and addiction. It is a powerful methodology to self-awareness, growth and transformation that blends my background as a bodywork with my training as a clinical therapist. 

Most importantly, this is therapy for you. Over time, it’s common for clients to create a hybrid. You may want a virtual session for every two embodied sessions. Or, perhaps you’d like to focus on an issue virtually for a few sessions then return to embodied work. This type of therapy is flexible, adaptable and intended to suit your unique, individual needs.

The more I practice, the more I realize yoga is quite possible the best therapy there is. Why? Because yoga works at both the subtle and the gross level, allowing the body and mind to soften. Additionally, yoga quiets the daily chatter of the mind.
