you can't always talk your way out depression, anxiety and trauma, but you can move through it!
Our ancestors danced to express joy, hope, pain, and sorrow. They used movement and dance to communicate, share stories, make connections...they used movement to heal.
We think it's important that you have the opportunity to do the same.
Your "maladaptive" coping skills are most likely strategic survival responses — the ways you've automatically responded + practiced and learned to move through this complicated and nuanced life. Either way, we'll help you understand why it's happening using science.
You've got to contend with systemic injustice out in the world as well as all the ways that the trauma of living within capitalistic, patriarchal, racist systems has impacted your family dynamic and lineage. It's enough to leave you depressed, anxious, and traumatized. Don't worry, we can help!
Healing is a long game — you know that! We're gonna help you cultivate the tools you need to practice healing your body, mind, and spirit. 85% of our clients experience depression remission in 6-12 months, we want that for you too!
Create your own movement practice with gentle guidance from our founder, Jennifer Sterling.
BECOMING BODYFUL Online Program
Learn all about your autonomic nervous system and how you can use it to regulate emotions, change unhelpful thought patterns, and behave in ways that move you toward your goals, instead of away from them.
Your body is your greatest resource for healing. In dance/movement psychotherapy, we'll talk, but we'll also use a combination of mindful movement and expressive movement to help you feel more vital, well, and whole.
I also feel less depressed than I did before. After a year, I hardly feel depressed at all and when I do, I know how to manage it.
"The relationships I have with my Bodyful Healing therapists has shown me that not all relationships suck."
It feels simple and easy, but it's the best part of my week because I don't have to talk if I don't want to. I can use my body and art to express my feelings; and my therapist understands me, even when I don't use words. She even dances with me. None of my other therapists did that, lol!
"I never believed that therapy could work for me, but it did!"
I used to be depressed all the time. In the last 6 months, I've only felt really depressed once and the feeling lasted a few days, not a few months (or years) like it used to. Jennifer taught me about my nervous system and helped me practice the skills I needed to feel better.
"I went to my "regular" therapist for years and just talked about my problems."
