Your Goals...
Your Journey.

From early childhood, we are surrounded by expectations - from family, friends, culture, society.  We internalize those expectations and experience their impact on our health, career, finances, relationships. Sometimes it manifests as perfectionism or Imposter Syndrome…sometimes as anxiety, grief, depression and stress.  We are always trying to live up to something, real or imagined.  In the effort to please everyone, we are often left exhausted, defeated, feeling like a failure. So maybe it’s time to rewrite that script imposed upon you…or the one that you imposed upon yourself.

You may be seeking therapy for the first time, or you may have tried therapy before and felt you didn’t get anywhere.  At Sound Guidance, we integrate the Expressive Arts therapies - art, music, movement, poetry, play - with Energy Psychology as well as more talked-based modalities like CBT, Mindfulness, Narrative/Schema Therapy, Internal Family Systems, to engage in a more whole-brain experience. This supports deeper understanding, greater expression and processing, and exploration of your desired path moving forward. 

Your journey is unique...what you’ve been through, the direction in which you want to also unique. We work as a team, as co-creators, to find what works for you, harvesting tools from a variety of therapeutic modalities - focused on a core awareness of the body-mind connection - to help heal past wounds, clarify your goals, and access your deep well of wisdom to support greater balance and joy.
