Clients coming to see Jody are generally in one of three categories:

  1. People who are unhappy and know why. They have experienced loss, mistreatment, oppression, trauma, major illness, discrimination, or other experiences that they identify as the source of their distress.
  2. People who are unhappy and don't know why. They may feel depressed, anxious, or dissatisfied with their lives and not know the reason.
  3. People who already feel pretty good and want to feel even better.

Jody specializes in helping adults safely and gently recover from challenging events and traumatic experiences. Therapy sessions are emotionally safe, empowering, and interactive. She uses healing and recovery models of therapy that respect each client's strengths and potential.

Jody has practiced the mind-body connection since the 1980s including a ten-year adjunct faculty position teaching body-focused psychotherapy to therapists at the Rubenfeld Synergy Center in New York City. She uses short- and long-term methods including brief solution-focused therapy, Gestalt therapy, EMDR, and other mind-body modalities.
