Remy Kurland, MEd, EdS, LAC is a highly sensitive therapist who provides a safe welcoming space for her clients to explore their worth and to learn how to apply the compassion we so often provide for others, yet have such a difficult time giving to ourselves.
Remy began her career supporting students in special education, many of whom were diagnosed with autism. Through these experiences, she further cemented her thoughts on the beauty and uniqueness we all have to offer that deserves to be celebrated and shared. Remy received core training in DBT, which she utilized with both adolescents and adult women who were in treatment for symptom stabilization surrounding unhealthy coping mechanisms. Many of these clients had past histories of trauma, negative body image, addiction, and poor relationship skills. Remy is also trained in EMDR, which can be a very useful modality for treating the debilitating symptoms of trauma. Drawing on her experience in yoga training, she infuses mindfulness and movement into her practice, navigating how it feels to listen to our bodies, as well as quieting the mind while continuing to acknowledge and accept it.
Remy has a particular interest in working with adults and young adults who are tackling such issues as anxiety, chronic physical discomfort, depression, trauma, and lack self-worth/acceptance. She understands the significance of feeling validated and seen in an environment where it may prove challenging to find acceptance. She also understands that acceptance begins and ends with the self and that you matter very much.
