About Maira Holzmann
When anxiety rules your life, it's damn hard to have much energy for anything else- meaningful relationships, mental energy to focus on your dreams and goals, having fun/enjoying your life and feeling confident about yourself. Despite your best efforts at practicing self-awareness, thinking positive thoughts, gratitude journaling and trying to convince yourself that you'll be fine, you feel stuck and want relief. Fifteen years being a therapist has taught me that only using talk-based, cognitive approaches is extremely limiting in the healing process. A great deal of research suggests that including the body in therapy leads to more beneficial outcomes.
Ready to anxiety-proof your life?
From the very first session, we are going to enlist your body as a powerful and wise ally in your transformation journey, this is the definition of Somatic Therapy. Talking is hugely important! AND, when clients couple their narrative with the wisdom of their bodies, magnificent shifts unfold. I also offer Therapeutic Touch to support increased nervous system regulation, a sense of groundedness and increased somatic awareness.
While I am able to work with a wide variety of issues and diverse populations, I specialize in the following populations and issues: survivors of childhood abuse and neglect, sexual trauma, PTSD, anxiety, anger, perfectionism and disordered eating. If you're ready to feel more ease, joy and self-confidence in your life, call now!
If you’re feeling stuck, wondering “Is this it?” about your life, then read on to see about getting going in the direction of your dreams and goals.
None of us escapes experiences of shame, trauma, fear, loss and grief.
It’s possible to have many of these experiences yet not know the negative impact they have on daily life, relationships and sense of self. Despite your best efforts at practicing self-awareness, thinking positive thoughts, gratitude journaling and trying to convince yourself that you’ll be fine, you are stuck wondering what is really going help.
