My name is Amelia Hall. I offer trauma-informed integrative embodied psychotherapy in the greater Los Angeles area.
My approach to therapy is client-centered, meaning that I put you first. I work with you collaboratively to find out what’s at the heart of your mental health needs and ultimately help unveil the abundance of wisdom already within you.
I work holistically while acknowledging systems and social justice. My work draws upon contemporary psychoanalytic, somatic, transpersonal, trauma-informed, feminist, expressive arts and earth-based spirituality.
I also draw from the well of wisdom traditions, the belief that in every religion there is a heart-centered, mystical center. I see symptoms as messages of the psyche which informs what paths of healing are most appropriate. I specialize in working with high sensitivity, neurodivergence, and feminine empowerment.
I graduated from the California Institute of Integral Studies Counseling Psychology program, the first transpersonally oriented, East-West graduate program on the West Coast.
There are many aspects to my approach, which makes my approach ideal because it’s not a “one size fits all” type of therapy. If you’re looking for someone who thinks outside of the box when it comes to treatment and puts you first, look no further.
We each have an innermost nature that is spontaneous towards truth, beauty and goodness. Call it soul, psyche, mind, etc. Its presence is palpable in the innocence of a child, but over time as we experience trauma it becomes fragmented. We heal through integrating new experiences of wholeness.
I focus on the following areas:
Depth Psychotherapy brings to the forefront the parts of the self that are difficult to bring to consciousness alone and explores the hidden unconscious. It brings to the forefront the parts of the self that are difficult to bring to consciousness alone. It tends to be a non-linear form of psychotherapy that delves into what is lying underneath the surface.
A Trauma-Informed Somatic framework approaches therapy from the perspective that unprocessed trauma from the past affects health and can shape interpersonal responses into adulthood. It involves working with mindfulness, honoring the present moment embodiment and working toward embodied resolution. This holds the perspective that everyone is healing from some kind of trauma as it relates to various inttersectionalities such as race, ethnicity, age, gender, sex, ability.
Expressive Arts which utilizes different modalities such as mindful movement, earth-based ritual, dance, dreamwork, and improv as psychotherapeutic tools to find creative expression and healing. My work is also very play-centered. As adults, we often lose our sense of play. We don’t make time for play or prioritize it in our busy lives. But play is one of the ways that we work through things that are troubling us, regardless of our age.
My specialty is working with womxn, high sensitives, healers, therapists, sexual assault survivors, people who have experienced complex trauma, are suffering from co-dependency, experiencing grief and loss, or going through big transitions. If you’re looking for someone who thinks outside of the box when it comes to treatment and puts you first in the greater Los Angeles area, I invite you to sign up for a free consultation.
