Ann Saffi Biasetti
Throughout my clinical career I have been drawn to practicing within a holistic framework, integrating thoughts, emotions and physical sensations in the moment. The world of neuroscience, especially embodied cognition and consciousness studies, has greatly influenced my psychotherapy work and the formulation of my interventions. I have developed a technique, used within talk therapy sessions, that allows you to become aware of patterns, both in the mind and body that may no longer serve you in your life. Together we work on re-framing and re-programming these patterns.
In the past, I have trained in Gestalt group psychotherapy as well as Relational theories. Ten years ago I obtained my 200 hour yoga teacher certification and went on to complete over a thousand hours of additional training in yoga (E-RYT-500), yoga therapeutics, and yoga therapy. The emphasis of my yoga therapy training has been on mind/body integration, which has greatly influenced my clinical work. I also teach as an adjunct in social work department at Skidmore College.
