Recommend This Therapist

Many of my clients have shared with me that they knew body-centered work was exactly what they needed because they were both intrigued by and apprehensive about it. Our focus on appropriate pacing will help you feel comfortable and confident in your steps forward.

As a somatic psychotherapist, I understand that talking alone often fails to produce the changes that mindful engagement with the body can. As a poet, I understand the power of the “exactly right” word. My clients learn to identify embodied language from distracting language, transformative movements from habitual movements. Then, the wealth of the unconscious can be accessed to transform life-limiting story lines into powerful new possibilities.

I have engaged in mindfulness practices for 16 years, and my core orientation as a therapist is rooted in mindfulness-based approaches. I completed training in Trauma-Focused CBT and sensorimotor psychotherapy for trauma resolution. I have trained extensively in NMT (the neuro-sequential model of therapeutics) and have provided trauma-focused psychotherapy in both private practice and agency settings.

In addition to individual work with adults, I provide body-centered empowerment groups for pre-adolescent girls, expressive arts/movement groups for survivors of cancer and individuals living with cancer, and dance/movement therapy groups for LGBTIQ individuals.

Please contact me or visit www.movementrevolutions.com for more information. I offer a free, initial consultation to determine client-therapist fit. I wish you well in your journey.

Groups

Break the Mold” Embodied Movement Series for LGBTIQ Adults begins November 2nd, 2011 When: Wednesdays evenings, November 2nd -- December 21st Where: Boulder, CO Cost: $210.00 *For more information and to pre-register, contact Leslie McCormick at 720-284-1197. A limited number of scholarships are available through Out Boulder. Daily requirements of the mechanized world cut us off from the nourishment that exists naturally within us. Out of touch with our bodies, we become out of touch with our selves, others, our work, and the world around us. Even partially disconnected, we can turn to empty or unhealthy forms of pleasure for fulfillment and ultimately feel worse. LGBTIQ people must continually cope with the additional stressors of homophobia/transphobia and internalized oppression. Oppression and internalized oppression appear to manifest in the body as do other traumas: a “stuckness” in survival responses, restriction of choices, and body/mind disconnection that results in dis/ease. “Break the Mold” provides a welcoming, comfortable space for participants to re/connect with their bodies, find internal nourishment, and discover unique resources for coping with known and unrecognized stressors. As an expressive, body-based modality, dance/movment therapy groups are uniquely suited to address depression, anxiety, body image, self-esteem, addiction, and issues related to power and community. “Break the Mold” begins by building a foundation of deepening embodiment and conscious choice. Participants will explore body-based patterns and play with new options in an environment of respect and curiosity. Finally, the refined attention, appreciation, and elegance of the artistic process will provide an uplifting counterbalance to somatic deepening. (No prior experience with dance or the arts is necessary!) Please join me for this unique group experience!
