Healing the Mind and Body Through Yoga Informed Psychotherapy
Creating a safe space in therapy for sharing openly and honestly is the foundation for nurturing positive change. In addition, finding opportunities within dialoguing to introduce simple Yoga postures, breathing practices, and guided meditation has the potential to enhance therapy. By encouraging open and honest dialogue and combining that with simple body-based Yoga practices, the intention is to:
- Relax the body and mind.
- Evoke positive emotions.
- Develop self-compassion and acceptance.
- Heighten awareness and promote insight.
- Engender a state of psychological well-being.
- Enhance your capacity to experience your True Self.
- Anxiety (including panic attacks)
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

I received my academic training at Naropa’s school of Somatic Counseling Psychology in Boulder, CO. My purpose in attending Naropa was to integrate the obvious therapeutic benefits of Yoga within a framework of contemporary Psychotherapy. Since 2006, I have had the opportunity to develop a style of Psychotherapy informed by the practices and principles of Yoga. For more information, click here.
