Somatic Imago Therapy
Somatic Imago Therapy
The relationship we have with ourselves and with others is influenced by our early life experiences. Where we learned to defend ourselves in ways that are not working now, we adapted parts of our selves so we would belong and be loved, we had needs that didn't quite get met. Now, it's all catching up to us in a way that we keep looping around the same issues, our reactions are not working, and we don't feel quite ourselves because we have adapted so much. Our relationships and the way we communicate have you feeling powerless, helpless, hurt, angry, lonely, alone, dead rather than joyful, alive, whole and loving. The answer is not in leaving but in doing the work.
I have taken the best of the best, Imago Therapy, Somatic Experiencing Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy and Gottman Therapy and developed a therapy for individuals and couples that dissolves the defensive postures, heals the trauma that has contributed to those defenses, gets the needs met that have continued to go unmet and brings you into your wholeness and presence as you were meant to live life.
