Somatic Therapy

Dreamwork

$125* per 75 minutes

Quite often the content of our dreams stems from inconsequential events of the day. There are times, however, when a dream takes on a more significant meaning and leaves the distinct impression that it is trying to communicate a message. But what is that message and how is one to discover it? I approach working with dreams through a gentle and inquisitive process by which a dream can connect with its dreamer in an authentic and meaningful way. This style has its roots in classical Freudian and Jungian dream analysis but has cultivated a more contemporary and participatory perspective. It acknowledges the inherent wisdom and dynamic nature of dream images and encourages a living relationship between the dreamer and figures of the dream. The therapist is present only to facilitate that relationship and not to “interpret” on behalf of the client.

Somatic Imaging

$125* per 75 minutes

This approach to bodywork is similar to dream tending in that its engages the images arising from somatic phenomena—trauma, heartbreak, unexplainable physical symptoms, pervasive moods, etc.,—in such a way as to open to their underlying wisdom and meaning. It differs from dreamwork in that it brings tablework into the session, incorporating light therapeutic touch as the therapist and client attune to what the body is saying.

This modality has been influenced in its inception by many notables in the field of depth psychology including Carl Jung, Robert Johnson, Marion Woodman and James Hillman. Pioneers in the field of somatics and bodywork such as Wilhelm Reich, Marion Rosen, John Upledger and Arnold Mindell have also had significant theoretical and practical bearing on its development.
