Connecting the Mind, Body, and Spirit in Psychotherapy

Therapy Tucson
Hi there! I'm Kristy Schutt, LCSW

Are you...

  •  An anxious adult feeling self-critical?
  • Doubting so much about yourself and life?
  • Feeling lonely and insecure?
  • Feeling overwhelmed by the chaos of life?
  • Struggling to connect in your close relationships?
  • Living life on other people’s terms and conditions?
  • Ready to start the trauma healing process?

My Commitment To You

I will help you to discover the life you want to live, the blocks that get in the way, and dissolve old patterns that are no longer working. Together we will explore feelings, uncover stuck energy in the body, and identify & shift the story line that runs in your head. “I don’t deserve, I’m not good enough”…) Let’s find long lasting solutions and return your body/mind to greater ease and flow. 

Through developing self-compassion, learning effective ways to cope with stressors, and regulating your autonomic nervous system, you can reconnect to your true self. Your past experiences do not have to continue to take hold of your life now. 

Addressing the Mind-Body Connection

Perhaps you feel hopeless or uncertain where life is going. The fact that you are here shows that you are beginning to take action. Growth and self-exploration is awaiting you. You are more than your thinking brain. Memories, beliefs, and stress get locked into the autonomic nervous system. We can NOT think ourselves out of traumatic or generalized stress. You are carrying a lifetime of unresolved stress. A somatic therapy approach engages all aspects of your thoughts, feelings, sensations, and intuition. Somatic therapy offers a fuller resolution to distressing symptoms such as anxiety and depression.

We Will Explore New Coping Strategies That You Can Use Right Away To Help Alleviate Your Distress

As a holistic psychotherapist it is my approach to meet you where you are and encourage you to envision the life YOU want as you tune into your BODY, MIND, AND SPIRIT. Becoming clear about your vision is an important piece of the therapy work. You may not know the steps to get there- that’s okay and that is why you are reaching out for support. 

I encourage you to dare to imagine the life you want. I will be a guide alongside you in that journey, using a combination of mindfulness, cognitive, somatic (body), experiential, and insight-oriented approaches to address the issues you are concerned about.

We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.
