And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Eastern Clinical Approach

Certified Yoga Therapist and Instructor, Reiki Master, Embodied Holistic Coach

While talking is a powerful tool, oftentimes experiences and traumas in life get locked into the body. Approaching healing by way of somatic energy modalities, has been found to be more effective than solely talking. Dr. Denise Renye has studied and is trained in the application of the yogic philosophy of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother as well as teachers Charidas Haridas and Indra Sen. She studied Integral Yoga and Psychology in Pondicherry India and through the Cultural Integration Fellowship (founded by Charidas Haridas) and his graduate studies accredited institution, California Institute of Integral Studies.  She researched and developed Spontaneous Embodied Spiritual Experience (SESE) as a way to assist people to live in their bodies integrating their body-minds. She has been trained in Reiki, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, massage therapy, Hands-on-Healing and Access Consciousness Body Processes. 

Dr. Denise works with individuals, couples and groups in her office as well as nature-based settings. These sessions are available in-person and remotely via video or phone conferencing (depending on modality). Using following theory and practice, sessions may include the following:
