Dr. Shapiro's Services

Dr. Shapiro uses a variety of therapeutic modalities and approaches to assist people in healing
and recovery. In practice these approaches may blend together more or less, depending on the situation. Dr. Shapiro is trained and experienced in traditional psychotherapy, body-centered psychotherapy, sex therapy, and yoga therapy. You may also find it helpful to participate in one of her group yoga classes at Namasté Yoga.

  • Traditional Talk Psychotherapy

    Traditional talk psychotherapy provides a safe space in a non-judgmental atmosphere to talk through thoughts and feelings about issues in your life, and to work toward new approaches. Talk therapy helps you become more aware of unproductive emotional and behavioral patterns and empowers you to find more effective and fulfilling alternatives.

  • Body-Centered Psychotherapy

    Another approach to healing is body-centered psychotherapy, which is based on the recognition that all emotions originate in the body. Body-centered therapy uses exploration of body sensations and of the "felt sense" of moment-to-moment experience as portals to deeper emotional healing. Mindfulness techniques for practicing present moment awareness are often included. Body-centered therapeutic practices work on emotional, somatic, and energetic as well as on psychological and cognitive levels. Deep healing can often be found through integrating body-centered techniques with traditional talk psychotherapy.

  • Sex Therapy

    Sex therapy is talk therapy for individuals, couples, and others where the topic is a sexual or gender concern or problem.

  • Yoga Therapy

    Yoga therapy is an emerging field that uses yoga techniques and practices to help people heal, grow and develop—on multiple levels. "Yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being through the application of the philosophy and practice of Yoga." (IAYT)  Dr. Shapiro is trained in yoga therapy.
