Focusing…

…the key to moving “life-forward.”

Focusing was developed out of the discovery that in order to heal and move forward in therapy, there must be a bodily-felt, experiential component to the work. Just thinking and talking about an issue can bring insight, but not real and lasting change.

Focusing is a methodology that can be used with virtually any treatment modality to deepen and enrich the process. It has been found to be especially helpful in working safely with trauma and PTSD.
