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. One of the biggest compliments she ever received from a colleague was to be described as "the least dogmatic therapist with whom he had ever worked".
Psychotherapy sessions are $150 for a 50 minute appointment.
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.
Expressive Arts allows for deep self-exploration through various modalities – including, but not limited to, visual art, movement, sound, music and writing. Our soul is born with the desire to give expression to its deepest purpose. Expressive Arts creates a space to allow for this expression. It can offer healing for anyone who is open and willing to explore it, and it can be especially beneficial for individuals who struggle with verbalizing or identifying their emotions. It is not necessary for you to be “good at art” in order to benefit from expressive art therapy – the process, as opposed to the end result, is always of primary importance. The saying “a picture can speak a thousand words” is an example of the power of images and symbols. Our dreams come to us in picture form; this is our primary language. Words and talking are a secondary process. We are a step removed from our internal world when we talk about it. When we move with it, drum it or express it through a visual means we connect to others and ourselves on a primary level. The word emotion comes from the Latin word Emovere, meaning "moving through or out". We are meant to allow our emotions to move through us and then out of us. Expressing emotions non-verbally is a powerful way to do so.
