Gretchen - Body Based Therapist, M.S.
As a body based therapist, energy healer, teacher, and speaker, I recognize the connectedness of us all and passionately inspire people to take action towards the lives they desire. I do this through movement, body based processing, energy medicine, sound healing, breath work, and meditation. These techniques allow a person’s body to do the natural healing that it innately knows how to do.
I bring depth and devotion to transformation and healing.
I support people not just on the level of mindset and thought processes, but also deeper healing and integration on a multidimensional level. It’s whole person healing process to come into awareness of wholeness. A true fusion of the physical with the mental, emotional, and spiritual.
As an active student of the transformation process, I am constantly seeking to understand the deeper systemic and ancestral implications of the individual and group challenges we face today, and weave this into the work I do with others and the being I am.
What is body based therapy?
I'll explain it by comparing it to something most people know more about - talk therapy. Most psychotherapists focus on the mind and my expertise is in understanding the relationship with the mind brain and body so I work directly with the body. The changes are lasting and you don't have to go through and relive past painful experiences by talking about them over and over again.
Body based therapy focuses on the autonomic nervous system and bringing it to a greater state of harmony and balance. There is grounding and centered work that is done as well as sensorimotor techniques.
People have claimed that this has changed their life.
