Body-Mind Psychotherapy

Melanie Smithson, MA, BC-DMT, LPC, CHt

Body-mind psychotherapy goes beyond talk therapy and allows you to deepen your awareness of how your thoughts affect your emotions and your body, and how your body stores emotions that have not been given expression. Working with awareness, sensations, breath and movement we bring to consciousness what is stored in the body. Through non-judgmental awareness, we can study and loosen held beliefs and behaviors that keep you stuck in unsatisfying life situations.  Many who have not benefited from traditional therapy have found relief with body-mind psychotherapy.
Creative modalities including art, music and movement blend well with body-mind psychotherapy, as does EMDR, an innovative method of psychotherapy proven effective in treating trauma.

"I am a 53-year-old wife and mother. For years I suffered from chronic pain and was eventually diagnosed with fibromyalgia.  I was fatigued, stressed, anxiety-ridden, always in pain, unable to sleep.  About two years ago, I became very depressed and suicidal.  I tried numerous doctors, drugs, etc. but never got relief from my symptoms until  I came in contact with Melanie Smithson.  Through the use of EMDR, she was able to help me get back my life!  I discovered through her gentle, caring and professional  counseling, that I was harboring a very painful event which happened during my early childhood, that later had manifested itself into pain in my body.  The accompanying fear and anger, that I had allowed to build up for decades, was ruining my health, my self-esteem, my outlook on life and my daily interactions with my family.  After just months of therapy with Melanie, I started feeling better, sleeping better, regaining an interest in life again.  The real testimonial is when I was able to go with my husband on a spur of the moment trip to the mountains and go dog-sledding.  Never in a million years did I think I could do that!  I feel I owe it all to Melanie Smithson and her gentle guidance back to good physical and mental health."
