how we work

At Movement Matters, we use an integrative approach to therapy, taking into account the interactions between mind and body.  We use mindfulness, movement and the arts as well as cutting-edge insights from neurobiology.

Therapy is a partnership between therapist and client and it is important for you to be an active participant in deciding what to work on and how to approach it.  We will always collaborate in order to best meet your needs and work at your pace and comfort level and tailor the work to facilitate a safe and meaningful experience.

Imagination and creativity are powerful elements in the therapy process.  Along with a sense of humor, they help to generate new solutions to old problems and help make the process lighter.

We use therapy methods including sensorimotor psychotherapy and expressive arts and dance/movement therapy.
