MELANIE MURRAY, MA, LPC-S, SEP, BCST

Melanie Murray, MA, LPC-S, SEP, BCST

Services:

Body Centered Psychotherapy
Somatic Experiencing Therapy
Attachment & Relational Trauma Therapy
Biodynamic Cranial Sacral Therapy

Melanie Murray, LPC, SEP, BCST is a psychotherapist that specializes in Somatic Experiencing Therapy. Melanie’s work is influenced by her mature nature as an empath, and intuitive healer. Somatic Experiencing touch work, her studies in Biodynamic Cranial Sacral Therapy, a Masters in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, an apprenticeship with a world class healer, and study at Sufi Spiritual Healing School, have enhanced her natural ability to feel into others physical and emotional experience. This allows for a deep connection to the unconscious and energetic levels of psyche.

Melanie is a mediator, yoga teacher, former professional ballet dancer and professor of dance. The body has been her life-long study. Melanie is a student of Consciousness, “The Work” of Gurdjieff, Advita Vadanta, Christian and Sufi Mysticism, Chakra Energy Healing and Authentic Movement. She remains curious and open to exploring how our energetic/spiritual anatomy and nervous system inter-relate.

“Does your life lack luster? Is there a stream of unease, boredom, anxiety or fear running underneath the surface? Do you find yourself numbing out with sugar, alcohol, shopping or sex?

We are living in an increasingly secularized world. The pressure to achieve success, accrue more material goods and experience sensual pleasures associated with bottomless desires, is at the level of societal addiction. All of this frenzy is rooted in the avoidance of feeling the emptiness, grief and frustration caused by a lack of sacred presence of our soul. We are lacking a connection to the real meaning of sacred purpose in our daily lives, and we experience life as hungry ghosts.

My work is rooted in turning your wiring inside out. It is about embodiment or living from your center, your essential nature or soul. Through the tools of somatic experiencing therapy and biodynamic cranial, I can assist the unwinding of your nervous system, from the automatic hyper-drive setting you are living, to experiencing a sense of well-being and connection to an intimate and purposeful life.

I use psychotherapy, as well as, touch skills to facilitate a body-centered process of healing. This is a multi-dimensional process of unlayering the disturbances that keep you separate from your true nature. One layer is that of Coming out of the noise of the mind by learning to orient to your inner world of sensation, intuition and feeling. Another layer is softening your defenses and habitual ways of avoiding the fears and beliefs that have gotten you this wound up and numbered out. There may be layers of trauma that create anxiety that you fear unleashing in rage or a panic attack. All of these layers keep you from feeling really alive and available for true vulnerability and intimacy. A life of grace that we are wired to live but need help accessing.

As an empath I can tune in to places in your body where blocked energy is inhibiting your access to love. After all, love is what we are here to experience, both for ourselves, others and our home, the universe. Love is the evolutional force of our existence.

I have assisted hundreds of clients in the process of unwinding the layers of personality identities and defenses, energetic toxic loads that create illness, and trauma that inhibits life from being expressed in its full magnificent preciousness.

I guarantee at the core of your being is goodness and your body has the fuel you need to heal.

WholeHearted Integrative BodyMind Therapies

Nicole L. Bickham, PhD, LMT, is a psychotherapist with a passion for body-mind healing. Her therapeutic style is collaborative, engaging, and integrative. Nicole operates from the belief that we begin life in a state of wholeness, and are innately oriented toward growth, but inevitably encounter experiences such as physical or emotional stress or trauma, or simply not getting our needs adequately met, that divert the natural process of development. While our human adaptability affords us ways of coping with these circumstances that work for us initially, these strategies may become restrictive later, limiting our growth and resulting in tension and anxiety, a sense of not “showing up” fully in one’s life and relationships, and mood difficulties.

Outdated patterns of thinking, behaving, and relating often occur automatically, below the level of conscious awareness, making them particularly challenging to access with traditional talk-based therapeutic approaches. The body-based, experiential techniques she incorporates are uniquely suited to accessing the “stories” held in the body so that challenging patterns can unfold and shift. She views her role as one of creating supportive and accepting space in which clients can cultivate inner resilience, rediscover their innate wholeness, and restore a sense of clarity and purpose.

Nicole received a doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Syracuse University in 2002 and later studied somatic therapy, bodywork, and inner awareness practices. She is a member of the American Psychological Association and is a Wisconsin licensed Bodywork Therapist.
