Aida Curtis

My approach is warm and relational.  Working together, we may make use of play, creativity, and exploring dreams and symbols to support growth and the discovery of new possibilities.I am particularly interested in the passage of intergenerational trauma and resilience. In therapy, we may focus on how we and our ancestors overcame hardships, discerning which responses support movement towards life and connection. I enjoy supporting clients’ inquiry into their relationship with spirituality, the social/political environment, and nature. I’m here to support people finding their personal power and agency in the world.

My approach is influenced by psychodynamic theory, Jungian analysis, multicultural inquiry, and trauma-informed practices. My somatic lineages include the comprehensive movement system of Laban/Bartenieff Movement Analysis, Body-Mind Centering, Hakomi, Qi Gong, and embodied performance practices including clowning, action theater, and Noguchi Taiso.

I have prior experience supporting the relationship between young children and their parents and have an interest in supporting family systems through the empowerment and healing of the individual who resides inside of that system.

I am bilingual in English and Spanish, and proficient in Farsi. My pronouns are she/her.
