It’s so nice to meet you. Here’s a little more about me.
Welcome to Inner Phoenix Embodied Arts, a private counseling practice for folks who like things a little different, a little more active, a little more natural and holistic. I’ve found that when your whole self comes to the session (not just your mind or brain, but your physical body, your heart and spirit), a whole lot more healing and awareness can happen, including integration of all your parts and systems.
How We’ll Get There
- Expressive & Creative Arts
- Nature-based Therapies
- Dream Bridging
What is all that?
Wilderness Therapy, Adventure Therapy, EcoTherapy
These therapies all have nature in common, utilizing it in different ways.
Ecotherapy can be seen as nature being my co-therapist, and is so much more. Are you someone who says things like “I need to work this out in my garden” or “I just need to get some time in the woods” or “Sitting by the lake will solve this”? That is what ecotherapy is all about: reducing stress and anxiety, improving your mode, and getting you some clear headspace so you can better solve all the things. In session, this may look like a hike, a walk in the park, or sitting on the beach with our toes in the sand while we talk.
Guess what? Mindfulness is part of every one of these therapy modalities! No matter which one I use with you, or if I weave several into your session, mindfulness is guaranteed to be a key factor. Mindfulness is what helps you get to know yourself better, helps you stay present (or get present in the first place), and this is yet another wonderful way to reduce anxiety, stress, worry, and all of the other ways we get our nervous systems out of whack. Mindfulness can help tame monkey mind, improve memory (YES!), help us become more thoughtful and compassionate to ourselves and others, which all help us self-regulate (calm down, find our center, get grounded, and so on). You can think of it more like observation and acceptance (aka compassion) of what is instead of trying to fix it to death (aka overthinking/rumination).
