Get to Know Erica Goodstone
"My life work is about creating love . . .Learning how to love, accept and acknowledge each other, and more importantly, how to love, appreciate and nurture our own selves.
With over 25 years of experience as a clinician and former professor of health, physical education, stress management and human sexuality in New York, I am currently serving clients in Southeastern Florida.
An added dimension in my work is my unique method of mind-body therapy, a form of body oriented therapy, somatic psychotherapy, or body psychotherapy. My work involves the judicious use of gentle, non-intrusive and respectful touch that assists clients to recognize and let go of traditional tension patterns in their body. As your bodily tension lessens, you will find that your mind becomes less clouded and your thoughts become less random and more vivid. Since our minds work with images and metaphors, when your bodily tension lessens, your mind can more easily access deep and profound meanings that may surprise you. Insights and understandings appear to arise miraculously, often presenting an entirely new perspective that sometimes leads to instant healing of lifelong mental or emotional blocks.
I have received training in a wide variety of body therapies (including polarity and craniosacral therapy, shiatsu, massage therapy, and Alexander Technique)
and have learned a unique method for combining talk with touch, The Rubenfeld Synergy Method.
Clients are often amazed at what they discover about their life, their relationships, and the extent to which they have been ignoring the subtle messages of their mind and body. As you start to intentionally pay closer attention to the details of your emotional and physical interactions, changes spontaneously and naturally begin to happen, almost effortlessly. Therapy with me is not work. It is a gentle coaxing, a gradual relaxation of your body, and a re-connection with your mind, body and spirit. Life becomes a work of art in progress and you gain greater and greater control of your own creative process."
