I am in service to an optimal life for all.
Our bodies are affected by what happens to us.
They are the holders of historic and current information.
What is the story your body is telling you?
It is told through movements, sounds, and images.
Somatic therapy is rooted in ancient healing traditions of embodiment.
It is a bottom-up approach where we mindfully
listen to the body ~ soma ~
The foundation of this work is based on compassionate, present time awareness
The imprint of what happens to us is psychological and somatic and can manifest differently for you then for others. Providing online, and in-person I meet you where you are and offer the time and space for you to connect with your inner wisdom. We work together bringing deep compassionate presence to the root of patterns. Unhealthy patterns, behaviors and adaptations can be updated and altered. This approach addresses issues concerning stress, grief, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, work, school, relationships, spirituality, stage of life, transitions, and can help anyone who has experienced anything overwhelming.
I am here to fully see you, feel what you're going through and offer you insights and skills you can take with you to help you through the struggles. Working together we can diminish the intensity of the symptoms, and support positive and lasting transformation. You can feel a deeper sense of peace.
"A therapist must, by definition, be accepting and non-judgmental. A therapist with heart and a deep understanding of life is harder to realize. I would unreservedly recommend Toinya as someone with that something extra. Having tried a number of therapists I can tell you: It makes all the difference". ~ K.W.
"Toinya has been a pillar of understanding, patience and empathy during my self-healing journey. Both honest and kind (which is not always easy), she has a deep respect for life and all the complicated facets it contains, while maintaining a clear eye on the goals her client has set up for themselves. I am very grateful to have had her ear and insight over the last several months." ~ K.D.
