CAMILLIA THOMPSON THERAPY

My

APPROACH

I know that it is through relationship that we achieve deep and lasting change. The therapeutic relationship is unique in the way it supports personal growth; we can set social constraints aside in order to explore how we truly feel. Therapy is serious business, but it can also be enjoyable. I bring joyful humor, as well as compassion, to the work. With a background in religious, spiritual, and cultural studies, I go where you need to go, holding space for your truth to emerge. I believe our problems are sacred answers in disguise, which supports a nonpathologizing and collaborative approach to treatment. We are already whole, no matter what circumstances have led us to seek counseling, and the work of psychotherapy is a process of remembering this wholeness.

"The whole world is not the same as the limited one we spent our childhood learning to live in. The Hakomi method is designed to access these 'undigested' experiences, bring them into consciousness, and find ways to integrate them."

— Ron Kurtz

My

BACKGROUND

I received my Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. I am a Certified Movement Analyst through the Laban Institute of Movement Studies in New York City and have studied Attachment and Hakomi with M.E.T.A. I bring a rich life history and a background of cultural psychology into my clinical work. My approach is rooted in extensive time abroad studying, living, and traveling through diverse regions of the globe. From these experiences I have come to know that we are cultural, spiritual, and biological beings and bring this sensitivity and awareness to my approach. This allows me to appreciate and support the unique orientations my clients bring.

"The best political, social, and spiritual work we can do is to withdraw the projection of our shadow onto others."

— C.G. Jung
