with Perry Lavin, LCMHC-A, LCAS-A
I welcome all individuals to work with me. My clients often suffer from a lack of purpose, difficulty coping with past traumas, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, grief, and substance abuse.
My approach to therapy is to first build a foundation of trust, openness, and curiosity. While each client is unique, I often employ somatic therapy - a way to deepen the mind-body, psychology-physiological connection. This body-based awareness allows old trauma to heal. At the same time, clients begin to feel a greater sense of being alive and present with their emotions.
