Psychotherapy

In addition to her certifications as a Yoga Teacher and a Yoga Therapist, Tanjariitta is a Licensed Psychotherapist (FL & MT) and a Certified Hypnotherapist. She offers both in-person and online psychotherapy services. Tanjariitta has over twenty years of experience in working with individuals, families and groups in settings ranging from school-based programs and community mental health agencies to medical settings and her own private practice. Her passion is to help people heal long-term emotional, mental and physical trauma and to change self-sabotaging patterns. 

 

Tanjariitta's counseling approach is holistic and integrative. Rather than working within a particular model or a theoretical framework, she prefers to draw from various theories and skill sets, including some of the more nontraditional therapies. Above all, she aspires to meet people where they are. 

Tanjariitta specializes in working with chronic pain and trauma.  

Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is a powerful modality that can help us release and shift cellular level memories. Working this way, we bring all parts of our selves - some might think of this as 'mind, body, spirit', or all of our 'Koshas' (for the yogis out there) - together so that we can most effectively create greater awareness and positive change in our lives.

 

Hypnotherapy allows one to shift old limiting beliefs, eliminate self-sabotaging behaviors, and release cellular-level memories that keep us stuck in past traumas. As epistemologists are now able to scientifically demonstrate, we arrive in this world with genetic memories passed on for generations. Hence, we have the term "generational trauma". One definition of the word "gene" is "I come into being", derived from the Latin word for "Attendant Spirit present From Birth". For better or for worse, we are born with built-in programming. Somatic therapy and body-centered hypnotherapy allow us to alter this genetic programming, quite literally shifting our genetic makeup. Said differently, we can work with the attendant spirit that has been present from birth and release it from its possible baggage. Consequently, this is the same type of work that the indigenous shamans and Native American healers are engaging in when they do what we might call soul retrieval work.

Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is a complex and layered issue. Thanks to neuroscience and epigenetics, we now have a much better idea about what causes chronic pain, but there is still much we do not understand about it. It is common for people with chronic pain to complain of:

• memory loss

• irritability

• sensitivity to loud noises, bright lights, textile textures or smells

  • Loss of interest in sex or intimacy

  • Depression

  • Difficulty concentrating or keeping track of things

  • Startling easily

  • Sleep irregularities

  • Changes in digestion or bowel function

  • Anxiety

  • Suicidal thoughts

  • Increased pain when exercising as advised by professionals 

  • Increased need for pain medications or frequency of medical interventions 

  • Loss of interest in activities that used to bring you pleasure

  • Interpersonal or financial problems

  • Negative thinking and loss of hope

  • Chronic fatigue

  • Inability to work

  • Disinterest in socializing

  • Fear or reluctance related to leaving one’s residence

  • And much more…

 

 

In our sessions, you will learn about the latest science, gain concrete tools, practice hands on exercises and create self care routines that will mitigate these symptoms and optimize your chances of living with reduced or no pain. 

 

Prior to her move into private practice, Tanjariitta worked as a part of an integrated medical team at a clinic focused on Chronic Pain treatment. She was fortunate to work for a medical director who prioritized the role of mental health, therapy and somatic work in helping people heal or improve the quality of their lives while living with chronic pain. It was during her work at this clinic that Tanjariitta acquired both her yoga teacher and yoga therapist certifications in an effort to help bridge the mind-body gap in her own sessions with clients. 

 

Chronic pain and the underlying issues that drive the pain response in the brain and the body are a topic close to Tanjariitta’s heart due to an old skydiving injury that made her determined to explore all possible holistic avenues to help her body heal. She has had the help of phenomenal practitioners in various holistic fields aiding her in her recovery over the years, and she is passionate about helping others find gentle and sustainable ways to manage or eliminate their pain.
