SOUNDWELL

CENTER​

A place for listening and healing

Sound Well Creative Arts Therapy, PLLC

Sound Well Center offers  wellness services including Creative Arts Therapies, Mindfulness Meditation, EMDR, Reiki, and Deep Listening Sound Meditations for groups and individuals, providing relief from trauma and anxiety by recognizing our inherent healthy selves through body-mind awareness, creative inquiry, and artistic expression.​​ The work  we do is based on the idea that we connect to our higher selves and each other through Creativity, Curiosity and Compassion.


Creativity is what helps us to re-frame situations and see things through a new perspective using art, music, movement, meditation, creative writing, visualization and deep listening.


Curiosity allows us to discover and use new  tools to work with the underlying causes of current or past difficulties, thus helping us to find our way to knew possibilities of a healthy and happy life. 


Compassion is what drives the therapeutic rapport in each session and allows us the opportunity to safely express ourselves, release held emotions and provide a platform  to move in new and healthy directions. 


Sound Well Center is a place to explore the individual process of what it means to have a  sound body and sound mind.  When we are truly feeling well, we are in flow,  feeling connected in all aspects of our lives. . Sound and music are connectors...conduits for self-actualization and well-being.


I am certified in EMDR for trauma and symptoms of PTSD and have training in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). 


The process of psychotherapy brings together self-inquiry and ultimately self-love. In order for the heart and mind  to heal, we must sometimes ask ourselves difficult questions and open ourselves up to vulnerability to gain the strength we need to live a life that resonates on the frequency of joy!


There is an Irish saying: "Contentment is Wealth."  To be content is to want for nothing - or to look at it  from a  Buddhist perspective,  desire or craving is at the root of  unhappiness.  


Ancient Greek philosophers, modern-day thinkers, and many of our spiritual leaders for thousands of years have  postulated the idea of happiness as our ultimate goal. 


Although it may seem to some that "happiness" is perhaps a lofty ideal or even trivial goal when it comes to our health,  it is the natural state that resides in all of us from a homeostatic perspective and  how we define and achieve a sense of happiness is, of course, up to us!


The thing about happiness is that it is an ephemeral being/feeling state and it is something that waxes and wanes. We can use mindfulness to acknowledge our feeling states and recognize these states as something we are feeling in the moment without defining who we are. 


Through mindfulness, we can identify and even accept our patterns while at the same time, make conscious decisions to create new patterns  towards optimal health!
