Featured Practitioners & Resources for Healing
Each month we will introduce a different practitioner and provide information about their specific approach – so that you can learn more about the resources available for yourself and your clients. The practitioners featured may be someone in the counseling field or an allied professional. If you are interested in being featured in our monthly newsletter, please send a short profile, along with your interests, areas of specialization, and contact information, to Elizabeth Venart, Resiliency Center Director, at email@example.com
.Somatic Psychotherapy with Jodi Schwartz-Levy, PhD
Somatic Psychotherapy is a pioneering field of therapy that bridges the worlds of bodywork, psychotherapy and the healing arts. The foundation of the work states that the body holds our life experiences and by paying greater attention to the body's language, in particular, sensations, breath, movement and other nonverbal cues, somatic tension (that is both emotional and physical) can be released.
Jodi is one of a small group of psychologists worldwide with a doctorate in this field, making her a specialist in mind/body integrative health. She works in collaboration with other mental health providers when they feel their clients need more body-oriented treatment than they can offer. This is often necessary in cases of trauma, psychosomatic issues, as well as for helping to regulate the nervous system (seen most often with anxiety and depression). Jodi offers individual somatic psychotherapy, educational workshops, professional trainings and individual supervision. On June 11, she will be leading Somatic Tools for Anxiety Reduction, which offers 6 CEU's for licensed marriage and family therapists, counselors, and social workers.
