Every client has their own unique set of needs. Susan Auman is trained in a variety of therapy methods that can be incorporated together in any combination, giving you the personalized experience that you need in order to find peace and embody wholeness.
Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a therapy method that helps people manage the physical symptoms of stress in their lives. SE incorporates methods such as exposure therapies, mindfulness, and biofeedback to teach people how to be aware of their physical changes in response to stressors, how to avoid feeling overwhelmed, and how to take charge of their own emotional control.
Hakomi is an approach to therapy that relies on mindfulness of body sensations, emotions, and memories. Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention to the present, in which thoughts and feelings are nonjudgmentally observed from a distance, helping people to manage their thoughts and feelings rather than being overwhelmed by them. Hakomi helps people to discover and recognize the unconscious habits and attitudes driven by their core memories, beliefs, and images, transforming their way of being in the world.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an approach to therapy that helps people with their emotional and cognitive regulation by teaching them how to recognize the triggers that lead them to reactive states and giving them coping skills they can apply in such situations.
Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is a practical, goal-oriented approach to therapy that aims to change the patterns of thinking or behavior that are behind people's problems, resulting in a change in the way they feel.
