In-Home Prenatal and Postpartum Therapy
Sessions are typically 50-60 minutes in duration and offered in-home for pregnant mothers and new mothers, we will utilize traditional talk therapy with the expressive therapies and relaxation techniques. Often motherhood can trigger intense emotions and trauma, during a time of rapid change with minimal time to express or explore these unique experiences. During sessions the therapist will create a supportive and nurturing environment for self-expression and personal discovery. Mom's will be guided in movement, art-making and meditation to promote self-care, while also exploring the challenging experiences of motherhood; exhaustion, stress, self-identity, anxiety, depression and family dynamics. Our hope is moms will feel empowered, rejuvenated and re-centered with therapeutic tools to maintain wellness at home and in life as a parent.
Reiki and Art for Healing
This 90 minute session integrates the healing power of Reiki and creative expression. Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "gentle touch" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. In a gentle and compassionate environment the practitioner will utilize aromatherapy, relaxing sounds, breathing techniques and Reiki to promote healing. You will then be guided in creative expression through art-making to deepen and empower your journey.
