I’m a teacher, psychotherapist, parent, and survivor of childhood trauma. It’s my life’s work to support children to feel safe and loved and to support parents to create loving and safe experiences for their own children.
No matter what you’re struggling with in parenting, I have space to sit beside you with patience, care, support, presence, and practical ideas. We will gear the topics covered to the specific needs of group members.
I so look forward to working with you.

THERAPEUTIC GROUP FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED TRAUMA
I have a strong belief that talking about our difficulties will release trauma from our brain and moving our bodies in specific ways will release trauma from our bodies.
Join us for a weekly body releasing session
Each session will focus on calming the nervous system to better enable the release of trauma and stress. To calm the nervous system, we will practice breath work and gentle movement. A body scan will complete the movement practice, this will give us an opportunity to check in with ourselves. Guided journaling and affirmations will help us end the session, encouraging self-exploration, positive thoughts and feelings.
Typical class schedule:
- 6:45pm-6:50pm greetings and facilitator introduction
- 6:50pm-7pm breath work
- 7pm-8pm movement practice
- 8pm-8:15pm guided journaling and affirmation cards
Group meets every Tuesday at 6:45pm-8:15pm via Zoom
Some guidelines to remember:
- This is a nonjudgmental supportive environment that fosters inclusivity for all
- Participants can join the session with cameras off

Somatic (Body Movement) Psychotherapy Group
Hosted by Arthi Bala, RP (Qualifying)
Somatic therapy is a form of “body-centered” therapeutic approach which focus on the physical responses which occur in the body due to Trauma, Anxiety or Depression. It’s helps people overcome symptoms tied to trauma it may allow someone to become “unstuck” in the fight, flight or freeze response by releasing pent- up energy and to better cope with difficult bodily sensations, supressed emotions and can bring you into the present moment.
The principles behind somatic therapy: The mind and body are connected, so whatever is felt in the mind is thought to also show up in the body.
Somatic therapy involves clients working on feeling physical sensations in the body that are tied to past traumatic events, rather than only thinking through the events and emotions that were felt. The purpose is to access the body memory of the event, not the story itself. We do this through movements, journaling, meditation and artwork.
When : Every Friday 7pm – 8:15pm EST
Where : Online via zoom
Who : Every one 18+ is welcome
Cost : $400 for 8 sessions
