Basya Pessin's approach

If you have experienced trauma, you may often feel unsafe in your own body. You may have become accustomed to ignoring the signals inside and no longer recognize your gut feelings. The more you push away these feelings, the more you are left with confusion, shame, and a sense of unease.

I know it is often frightening to stop ignoring these signals and pay attention to your internal experience. I know it is frightening to connect when you have been hurt and have learned to defend against connection.

I will be right here with you to guide you and help you listen to the voice inside in a balanced and comforting way. Together we can explore new ways for you to trust yourself and others so you can feel grounded and connected in the world around you.

I use a blend of modalities in my practice, all with the goal of helping clients to find resources within themselves. Human beings have a depth of strength inside and I believe in my clients’ abilities to find those strengths and move through life bravely and wholeheartedly. Some of the modalities I blend include Somatic IFS, IFS, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Somatic Interventions, and Attachment Based approaches.

Therapy is a brave step, and the energy spent to find the right therapist often feels exhausting. If working with me is pulling you, reach out to see if we may be a good fit.
