Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is a therapy that is based on the principles that psychological problems are based on unhelpful ways of thinking and behaving and focuses on addressing thinking errors and patterns as well as behavioral change to cope and improve or resolve problems. CBT uses a variety of cognitive and behavioral techniques. We use these interventions as well as interventions from many psychotherapeutic modalities, including acceptance and commitment therapy, compassion focused therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, exposure therapy, mindfulness-based therapy, motivational interviewing, positive psychology, and solution focused therapy.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR therapy helps people of all ages. We use EMDR with a wide range of challenges from trauma and depression to anxiety, phobias, and panic attacks. EMDR incorporates elements from many different treatment approaches and comes from the lens that our brain is meant to heal from disturbances and sometimes gets stuck and needs a little help. We like EMDR because it is not just skill and knowledge put into practice, changing behavior. It is an experience where something bad no longer feels true and something good feels true. Ever know something is or isn’t true, but despite our knowledge, it does or doesn’t feel true? EMDR helps us feel the feels and experience the experiences to support our healing.

Reiki is a Japanese healing technique used to promote well-being. Reiki (ray-key) translates to vital life force energy. Though it is a spiritual energy, it is not tied to any one religion. We all have energy flowing through our being. It can be measured by science! A healthy human being’s energy vibrates from 62-72 MHz. A human with a vibration level around 60MHz is susceptible to cold or flu, at 58MHz, they are vulnerable to disease. A Reiki session helps recalibrate your body, mind, and spirit and raises your energy level back to 62-72 MHz, restoring balance relaxation, and healing. When experiencing Reiki, the practitioner administers Reiki by gently laying hands on another and sometimes hovering their hands over another. The practitioner is a channel for energy guiding it to the individual. The energy flows to where it needs to go, restoring and fortifying our being. Reiki is used to support healing and wellness for a variety of issues at a variety of places, including the Cleveland Clinic, your local yoga studio, and your counselor’s office.

Yoga is an ancient Indian practice meaning to tie, link, or yoke. Yoga involves linking physical postures, breathing techniques, mindfulness, and meditation. Exploration of self through this breathing, movement, stillness, and space allows up to be present with ourselves. Opportunities abound to connect the mind, body, and spirit unfurling, flowing, and shifting on all planes. Connection extends outside of ourselves and to those around us when practiced in a group or community. These classes are offered in a group setting and while it may be therapeutic, we do not have a clinical focus. This yoga class is the perfect pause for our busy minds and busy lives!
Trauma-Informed Yoga Therapy
Trauma-Informed Yoga is an approach creating a safe, sensitive space in which yoga students can learn to regulate their nervous system through connection with the breath, movement, and increased body awareness. Yoga teaches us to reconnect to our bodies and move forward into the world with openness. It builds mindfulness, self-compassion, locus of control, and strength. Instruction is mindful that trauma is stored in our body as well as our mind. The teacher guides with awareness of potential triggers, sensitivities, and heightened need for safety. The practice is done as a modality for healing with a clinical intention. Doctors Bessel van der Kolk, Dan Siegle, Pat Ogden, and Peter Levine (leading researchers in trauma recovery and body psychotherapy) endorse yoga practices as an integral part of treatment. These sessions are offered in group and individual sessions for purpose of therapeutic interventions.
Trauma-Sensitive Yoga Therapy
Trauma-Sensitive Yoga Therapy is an adjunctive treatment for complex trauma. Living in your body in the aftermath of trauma can be challenging. In addition to the benefits of Trauma Informed Yoga, TSY provides space for individuals to explore choice and empowerment in their body through invitation and choice options. There is ample opportunity to draw awareness to internal experience and introception. It can often be done in a chair and involves gentle movement and choices rather than following cues of poses. This process provides an experience of agency within one’s body with little expectations of what that needs to look like. This is offered on an individual level within counseling sessions and in addition to counseling sessions for those healing from complex trauma.
