Hayden Dover, MFT
Body Centered Psychotherapist
I am committed to working with my clients to facilitate self-awareness which will allow them to make choices that are healthy, empowering and aid them in developing a greater sense of joy and fulfillment in life.
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and hold an MA in Somatic Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies.  I am also a graduate of the Southern California Institute for Bioenergetic Analysis and the Hakomi Institute of California and have an extensive background in personal training.
I offer psychotherapy to individuals and couples who grapple with a variety of concerns or who wish to use therapy as an avenue for personal growth and greater fulfillment. My approach to healing draws on my view of the body and mind as a dynamic integrated organic system in constant relationship with its environment.  As a therapist I am supportive and non-judgmental of your views, lifestyle and aspirations and work toprovide a safe, open, nurturing environment in which we can enrich, deepen and expand your experience of life.  My approach is holistic, existential-humanistic and body centered.  Body centered psychotherapy is a powerful vehicle for deep self awareness and personal growth.It is also particularly useful for working through difficult life transitions and issues such as depression, anxiety, panic attacks, trauma, dissociation and chronic pain.
