Yuko Lawrence, MA, LPC
My journey to becoming a therapist started with my own healing journey, as many do. I lived and worked for many years at a Meditation retreat center in the mountains of Colorado. As I sat quietly in meditation, years of stored emotional pain surfaced and I discovered that this pain was held in my body as well as my mind. I began to discover how to release this trauma and this started my own somatic therapy journey.
Somatic, Experiential, Holistic Therapy
I take people deep, and often quickly. I help my clients drop "below" their thoughts and into their emotions, bodies, intuition and sub-conscious. This can be intense. And it is vulnerable. But if you are ready, it is also tremendously potent.
I offer personalized individual therapy that responds to the unique needs of each client. I specialize in anxiety, depression, trauma, and grief.
I draw on Emotionally Focused Therapy for my approach to couples work. This approach is based in attachment theory and helps clients get out of the "details" of their fights and to the core attachment hurt and needs underneath.
"So grateful for Yuko. I’ve had so many powerful breakthroughs and emotional releases that have allowed me to grow and step into my more authentic self. Yuko had guided me through so many powerful experiences of connecting with my inner child and healing from a place of deep compassion. She never tells me what to do, she simply asks questions and holds such beautiful space for me to connect with myself and honor my experiences. I have noticed significant positive impacts on my life and relationships since beginning sessions with Yuko."
