Shternie Wuensch is a licensed marriage and family therapist with a private practice in Miami, FL and online. She works with individuals, couples and groups, specializing in individual psychotherapy and couples therapy. She is also trained as somatic psychotherapist, the belief that our bodies carry the stories of our life and trauma, and through body awareness and practices we can move towards healing. With her background in chassidic life and psychology she deeply understands the issues of modern relationship and spiritual life.
In this episode, we talk about the process of return and repair that comes every year during the Hebrew month of Elul.
We talk about creating positive change and how important it is to get clear on what it is that we are wanting and then creating practices that support growth in that direction.
We often get caught in old stories and thought patterns that don’t work and we tend to experience familiar emotions such as guilt, despair etc. Once we are aware of our thoughts and we notice and track them then we can create space for choice. We can ask ourselves "what do I want to do here" ? By being present, viewing ourselves with compassion and returning to our "wise minds", we can find the answers within ourselves to support healthy change.
