At Mind Your Breath Counseling, we incorporate psychotherapy, or talk therapy, with several complementary body-based therapies that involve incorporating movement, touch, breathwork and mindfulness in order to explore emotions, experiences and thoughts.
We are a woman-of-color owned therapy practice that specializes in women of color. Our practice takes into account the whole woman in her environment, cultural/racial trauma and gender based issues. Women, and women of color specifically, are carrying around traumas from generations of oppression, gender and racial discrimination and daily microaggressions and threats to their bodies and livelihoods. This constant barrage of threats, physical or emotional assaults and lack of safety creates much tension, stress in the body. The body never forgets what the mind and emotions experience, and vice versa. Women of color need support and care. At Mind Your Breath Counseling, we provide specialized body-based psychotherapy services--for us.
During our confidential, virtual sessions we will explore experiences, feelings, and thoughts through a variety of somatic techniques. These could include bringing attention to your breath, exploring your body’s contact with the surfaces you’re sitting or laying upon, standing up and engaging in gentle physical movements, and/or placing your hands on your chest, belly, or other areas of your body. We also offer a Mind-Body Marketplace that provides Group Restorative Yoga Classes, Private Movement Classes and items to complement your healing journey.
We believe that bringing awareness to the mind-body connection brings about healing. Let us help you heal...if you are ready.
