Modern Psychotherapy with a Creative Edge

Movement Analysis

Movement Analysis & Repatterning

As one of the Master teachers of the Kestenberg Movement Profile (KMP), Dr. Birklein is uniquely equipped to address psychological issues through, and in movement. This unique approach is geared toward people who want to achieve a high level of presentation. Video feed back and systemic analysis will be used to identify strength and areas for improvement, as well as personal issue in public appearance and speaking. This system is highly effective in executive coaching and group coaching.

There are several basic systems of movement analysis and movement observation that have been used therapeutically and in the observation of nonverbal behavior: Laban Movement Analysis (LMA) and the Kestenberg Movement Profile (KMP). The KMP is based on the Laban system, but attends more to psychological issues and interactions and is conceptualized through psychoanalytic theory. Both systems can be used to understand a person’s personal movement, and movement in interaction with others, as well as in parent-infant psychotherapy.

Developmental Movement

Experiencing physical pain? Have difficulties moving efficiently? Developmental movement re-patterning brings you back to earlier neuro-developmental and psychomotor patterns to restore underlying dynamic support systems and connectivity in your body and movements. Dr. Birklein provides ‘hands-on’ work to facilitate alignment and connectivity, activate body systems, and increase efficiency in movement.


How to Get Started

Get started today by scheduling an appointment. The first 1-3 sessions serve as consultations. This is an opportunity to talk about what you would like to work on, and what you expect from treatment. We will discuss how I may be of help to you, and see if we are a good “match” for ongoing treatment.
