Get Unstuck & Create a Fulfilling Life with Body-Centered Therapy
Teletherapy for deep-feeling and high-achieving women in the Greater Boston area and throughout Massachusetts
Are you tired of feeling emotionally
“all over the place,” exhausted, and like you’ll
never be enough no matter how hard you work?
Yet, you worry that if you say ‘no’ to others or tell trusted friends and family how you’re feeling, they’ll be disappointed in you or feel like you’ve failed.
You struggle to justify setting aside time for yourself. Instead, you tell yourself you ‘should’:
- Do more for others
- Work harder
- Be able to manage everything on your own
You’re not alone.
Create a more present, balanced lifestyle.
I’m Kimberly Schmidt Bevans
(she/her), a licensed therapist serving the Greater Boston area, Massachusetts. I help high-achieving, deep-feeling women just like you—they care deeply, work hard, and often appear as if their life is going well.
Yet, inside, they feel overwhelmed, not good enough, worried, and exhausted. You want to be the person your friends and family go to for support and help, but it’s hard when you’re also struggling with difficulties and your own emotions.
You can achieve more life balance, develop meaningful relationships, and a fulfilling life with body-centered therapy.
I can help you achieve the fulfilling life you deserve through my unique body-focused therapy.
You want more from your life.
You care deeply for all the people in your life. You want to be there for them. Yet, you feel pulled in so many directions that it’s hard to fully be there as you want. It’s also getting harder to seem like everything in your life is fine. Regardless of how hard you try, you feel less meaningfully connected to others in your life—even yourself.
Plus, the more you try to push through the exhaustion, set aside your feelings and needs, and balance everything on your own, the worse you feel. Everything gets harder and more overwhelming.
You may worry that:
- You can’t keep up with all your obligations
- People in your life may leave you
- You’ll be so busy doing everything for others that what you want will be lost
Many high-achieving, deep-feeling individuals also express that they struggle with managing their emotions because of how intensely they feel them. Additionally, they tend to pick up the emotions of others (including taking on those feelings at times!). These tendencies are common in individuals who are Highly Sensitive People. Yet, it can be challenging to learn how to manage these experiences so you stay balanced and not overwhelmed by taking on others’ emotional states.
You want a life that helps you feel:
You want to know you’re ‘enough,’ feel comfortable in your own body, and content with the choices you make and who you are.
Reconnect with your body, thoughts and feelings.
My clients often have tried other approaches, like a talking-based therapy or yoga, to help heal and reconnect with their bodies, goals, and selves. While these approaches may have brought some insight or temporary relief, they still struggle to reach a place of deeper healing and understanding.
Body-centered therapies, like somatic-based therapy, dance/movement therapy, and expressive therapy, let us incorporate the natural bodily (or somatic) responses into our work together. These body-based, expressive, and mindful approaches allow you to access deeply held patterns that can’t be reached through talking alone.
