Tom Westin, MFT
We each possess a great wellspring of aliveness, which yearns to come forth and express itself, no matter what long-held beliefs act to constrict its expression. I see the process of therapy as both loosening the knots of old beliefs and finding ways to tap into this aliveness, in order to live a more authentic and satisfying life.
When working with clients, I use an approach that is relational and collaborative, helping clients make the best use of the strengths they bring to therapy. My work incorporates experiential, somatic, and mindfulness-based approaches.
I received a master’s degree in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology from JFK University, have received postgraduate training in existential contemplative psychotherapy and have completed the two-year comprehensive training in Hakomi, a mindfulness-based method of somatic psychotherapy. I am also trained in EMDR, and use this with clients dealing with the effects of trauma.
I work with adult individuals and couples.
