PSYCHOTHERAPEUTIC HOLISTIC ALTERNATIVE PSYCHOLOGICAL TREATMENT
BODY-MIND BASED PSYCHOTHERAPY

Ilse Jimenez, LMHC, RYT, RPT Therapist, SE Practitioner.


Ilse is a Latino provider born in Costa Rica, she has a great appreciation for life, energy and nature. Her philosophy has been considered different when she observes opportunities for treatment involving the body-mind connection.

Ilse utilizes the somatic psychotherapy approach to decrease the body mind reactions caused by traumatic experiences. 

 Mindfulness techniques can assist you to rebuild the present moment without being anymore in threat response. Building this capacity is extremely important in the process of recovery, transformation, and deepest healing.
Ilse counts with great experience when noticing your nervous systems, her high intuition will help you to recognize with acceptance and kindness how your nervous system reacts  when a shocking experience occurs. As soon this is happening; unblocking  the trauma from your body will need  a container to support you to find self-regulation. 

Ilse's somatic training and degree in psychology brings a safe understanding of your freeze, fight, flight respond. Once self-regulation and self-organization happens, you will start gaining a sense of freedom together with a higher level of consciousness.

Ilse's holistic approach is based in connecting ourself with the natural resources. Shamanic healing and working in energy are unique approaches also utilized in her practice.  Ilse was born in a Tropical country, she allowed herself to have contact with the Mother Earth. Healing with the spirits of the Mother Earth as therapy are encouraged with walking meditation, contemplation of natural views, construction of mantras, sound healing, and more.  


SENSE OF GRATITUDE PROVIDED BY MOTHER EARTH WHILE PSYCHOTHERAPY HOLISTIC TREATMENT TAKES PLACE

1-A sense of gratitude for having a body that was protecting us starts showing in your heart. 

2-Appreciating stillness- pausing and let go, increases the time for finding yourself in the present. Powerful awareness of the present brings acceptance alleviating the old patterns and finding gratitude without shame, or blaming.

3- AHIMSA (non violence) as a principle in your mindfulness healing is empowered. 

AHIMSA bring the principle of cultivating  peacefulness, capacity to accept the present with positivism and altruism. A compassionated heart is ready to release the past. 
 AHIMSA, as major principle in your therapeutic treatment; increases inner pace, self-love, and sense of belonging. 
AHIMSA, also befriend the body from long time constrictions, or physical pain. 
 
 "As a therapist I follow without fear a commitment with the higher power to bring  awareness of the body-mind connection for those who are suffering.  My work departures from the believe that acts of love bring freedom that releases the emotional  pain."
