Kristin Fialko

We often find ourselves and bodies, on the path towards health after overwhelming experiences, trauma, grief or loss. This can leave us feeling fragmented, fearful, or that our inner-fire has dimmed. I take my role as a therapist, one who supports the client in their bravery, as a facilitator of a sacred collaboration in restoring balance. I conduct therapy with an intention to process and move trauma (anxiety, depression and grief accompanying it) in order to restore a healthy relationship between the mind, body, and spirit and reignite the internal fire.

The body is a holder of immense wisdom and memory on a spiritual, emotional and transgenerational level. I work relationally with a trauma-informed lens, incorporating somatic techniques (rooted in Somatic Experiencing & Sensorimotor Psychotherapy) Gestalt & Parts work, Transpersonal psychology, mindfulness practices, art therapy modalities and a social-justice orientation.

Great care is taken developing our therapeutic alliance and experience into one that is horizontal and grounded in trust and safety. When working with individuals, couples, and adolescents, I see creativity, curiosity and exploration at the foundation of the work along side multiculturalism and diversity.
