SOMATIC PSYCHOLOGY - TRAUMA FOCUSED
The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you really are.
- Carl Jung
Healing is a process.
In a safe partnership, we will explore places that have persistently caused you pain. We will observe, without judgement, the limiting beliefs and traumatic wounds as well as provide a curative and safe space to heal.
Again, let me welcome you to your opportunity to envision a life where you can hope and dream of wanting more for yourself and where you can achieve it with a gentle healing approach paced and created at your speed.
"Where you are is where we will start."
Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is a somatic approach (body) that aims to treat unresolved trauma symptoms. Unresolved trauma stays within the nervous system and its symptoms are experienced by those affected by trauma, either consciously or unconsciously. Many people may not be aware of unresolved trauma symptoms.
Sensorimotor Psychotherapy combines somatic therapies, attachment theory, cognitive applications, neuroscience, and techniques from the Hakomi Method. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is gentle and effective in treating adults with childhood trauma, or those who have experienced the following: PTSD, various forms of Abuse, Depression, Anxiety, Anger, Relationship issues, and Childhood issues.
Everyone experiences unwanted feelings of anxiety, inadequacy, and disconnection from the world. These feelings are best dealt within a safe, comfortable space with a therapist you can trust.
Dr. Sobo works with a broad and diverse range of patients. Through a collaborative and supportive relationship, she provides a safe environment so that her patients can organically connect and feel the missing experiences needed to heal from relationship and disappointments during childhood, and to repair from painful traumas. In doing so, the persistent somatic, emotional, and cognitive beliefs about yourself and relationships to others change to free you from old maladaptive behaviors. You will intuitively learn new ways of sensing safety to stimulate healthy social relationships, decrease anxiety, and much more.
Couples treatment is shifting. Somatic therapy teaches new somatic techniques including mindfulness, sensitivity and emotional regulation, closeness vs. intimacy, power, roles, and differentiation. Treatment offers new hope and new outcomes.
"In couples therapy, the work for the woman is to have a voice. The work for the man is to connect."
