Therapy

Somatic psychotherapy is a comprehensive approach to mental wellness that views the mind and body as a whole.

Somatic therapy integrates body-oriented processing with talk therapy to help process and discharge unresolved trauma. It directly addresses chronic tension patterns and unconscious behavioral responses that indicate where a client might be stuck in fight, flight, freeze, or collapse. Somatic therapy helps clients learn to track their sensory experiences and locate resources or sources of safety, grounding, centering, strength, calm and/or peace.

Individual & Group Therapy

My approach draws on traditional psychodynamic and cognitive interventions, mindfulness practices, and somatic psychotherapy.

Success stories

Kyra helped me after my surgery when I had trouble breathing and sleeping through the night without pain. I don't like relying on prescription painkillers and Kyra's techniques allowed me to get through this period as naturally as possible. - Jenny LaNicca
