Integrative Somatic Psychotherapy

 

Integrative Somatic Psychotherapy sessions combine traditional psychotherapy with integrative mind-body techniques that engage body-centered wisdom to support mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health. 


A combination of somatic therapy approaches may be used in session based on the clinical assessment of needs from your therapist and with expressed permission:

  • Body-centered Psychotherapy, Somatic Experiencing® and EMDR
  • Mindfulness, Guided Imagery, Breath Awareness
  • Movement, Tai Chi, Qigong

 

Christine Milovani, LCSW, combines 20 years of experience in clinical social work, psychotherapy, somatic therapies and eastern healing modalities. She holds a safe and grounded space for healing, while approaching each person with genuine support, authenticity and an open-heart. Sessions are tailored for what is needed in the moment and a partnership is created to focus on healing the whole person.


Christine is skilled in assessing, problem solving, providing feedback, assisting in lifestyle and behavior changes and connecting to community resources. She can also offer advocacy, consultation and support by collaborating with medical and integrative professionals within your plan of care. 


In addition to somatic focused therapy, some sessions may involve more action oriented work to review the motivation around daily lifestyle "choices for change" and capacity for resilience. Solutions for creating balance in life are discussed and supported. Stress management skills are taught through educational and experiential feedback. The goal is to empower a person to heal and transform from within, while increasing coping skills and confidence in daily life. 


Some positive effects connected with somatic psychotherapy may include:

  • increased self-awareness and self-confidence,
  • improved attunement to one's own body,
  • improved social connections and relationships,
  • reduced stress and trauma responses,
  • increased resilience and self-regulation.
