Some clients choose to adjust their insurance plan during open enrollment to select the most advantageous Out of Network terms.
We have groups for people who have struggled with various types of trauma, from developmental trauma to physical/sexual assault/abuse. Our groups address the impact of dealing with trauma from a multilayered approach including psychology, yoga, and mindfulness in order to treat the whole person. The environment and structure of the group is designed to increase feelings of safety and build trust, facilitating an opportunity to work through difficult emotions or sensations. Many people continue ‘talk’ psychotherapy while attending yoga groups, and we work collaboratively as a team to ensure the best possible treatment.
Yoga groups focus on incorporation of movement and development of body awareness. Often trauma leaves people disconnected from their bodies, and at times thus disconnected from themselves. Research has found that intentional movement, specifically yoga can help reconnect people with sensation and their bodies, and ultimately themselves.
Our groups for specific diagnoses, e.g. anxiety, depression, or body image concerns, are part movement or art and part psychotherapy process group. We have found, and research supports that in order to process complex feelings and memories, the body needs to be relaxed enough, and the fight flight response turned off. We call this being within the window of tolerance. If this is not achieved the mind/body are in hyperarousal or hypoarousal and the mind cannot process thought. For more on this click here.
