Ms. Melissa Morrill Bostrom

Pre-Licensed Professional , MA

(401) 239-0041
I assist my clients with body-centered psychotherapy utilizing mindfulness and Gestalt techniques to develop awareness of unconscious behavior and decision-making patterns that contribute to current difficulties. By providing support and safety, I encourage my clients to find the internal voice of their own wisdom. It is my belief that problems arise due to adaptations made early in life that no longer serve the best interests of the individual. Bringing acceptance to old ways of doing things allows for the creation of new approaches more appropriate to one's current life situation. Personal spirituality and imagery assist this process.
I work with adults and encourage them to become aware of and bring compassion to all of themselves, their competent adult selves as well as their wounded internal children. Understanding the challenges of development throughout the life cycle helps us identify areas in need of healing and reinforcement.
I am a graduate of the Hartford Family Institute professional training program in body-centered Gestalt psychotherapy and subtle energy healing. I am trained in the practice of guided imagery and sandplay. I am also a Level II Reiki provider. My work acknowledges and supports the personal spirituality of clients
