Johanna Hays, PsyD, SEP, CHt, Psychologist in Valencia
I believe that each of us has an inner guiding wisdom that knows what decisions and directions are best for us. Through the process of listening to symptoms, feelings, and reactions, it becomes possible to reconnect to that wisdom and navigate through difficulties and challenges. Issues such as anxiety, depression, fears, weight, and insomnia are often symptoms that can teach us about what is working and what is no longer working in our lives. I can help turn old habits and responses into positive changes and create life-long tools for coping and moving forward. My approach is unique and effective.
Our life experiences are etched into our memories, often causing us to react from perspectives of past experiences. Through a combination of Somatic Experiencing, Depth traditional talk therapy, and hypnotherapy, I help individuals release reactions to past events that become stored in memory and body, and help return the nervous system to balance and regulation.
My diverse training allows me to use several approaches in order to best meet the needs of different individuals.
