July Newsletter

Life can feel a bit too much at times.

Here at Montana Center for Somatic Psychotherapy we can offer our presence to help you slow down, reconnect with your body, your feelings, and what you want to believe about yourself. We can help you work through the patterns physically and in relationships where you feel pain and that hold you back from the life you want to live.

We work with Trauma and PTSD, Attachment and Relationships, Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Family issues, and a longing to connect with something much bigger than yourself.

We offer Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Authentic Movement, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Hakomi, Circle of Security, Group Therapy, Couples Therapy, Individual and Family Therapy.

We are currently enrolling for 3 group opportunities

Authentic Movement Group

Tuesdays at 1:45 every other week. 

Authentic Movement is a mindfulness based movement practice. It is done in a dance studio with individuals, and groups. In this practice, physical movement can create a bridge between the implicit and explicit memory. This can create the possibility to explore internal material, as well as the relationship between the inside and outside, seeing and being seen. As people commit to the process of Authentic Movement, slowly, many find that they begin to bring the formless into form, the unspoken begins to be spoken, and the unseen, begins to be visible.

Sensorimotor Skills Group

Wednesdays every other week at 10:30 Starting 9/7/22

This group teaches skills that include

  1. Meditation principles to build the capacity to observe oneself.
  2. Building connections on positive experiences rather than traumatic history.
  3. Helping intervene in thoughts/feelings/body sensations.
  4. Separating traumatic schemas from present experience.
  5. Understanding the parallel life that trauma survivors live.
  6. The basics of working with parts of self.
  7. Harnessing habituated responses and exploring new choices.
  8. Exploring new ways of perceiving current life circumstances.
