This content was provided by Peggy Sharr "Since 2006, I've been helping adults, adolescents, and children with myriad of challenges, including depression, anxiety, trauma and PTSD, behavioral challenges, stress reduction, mood stabilization/regulation, crisis intervention, grief and loss, relationship problems, and resolving feelings and experiences from the past. In addition to seeing clients in my private practice, I have also worked in the Department of Psychiatry outpatient clinic at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics since 2011. My inspiration to be a psychotherapist came from my own background growing up in poverty, and being raised by a single mother struggling with mental illness. I am a compassionate and empathetic, creative problems solver with a practical, but holistic approach that is tailored to each individual's needs. As part of my training, I learned that physical symptoms can be one of the keys to understanding ourselves. And attending to those physical sensations can be a chief component in releasing the stuck patterns that lye in depression, anxiety, trauma, hurts from the past, and other mental health issues. Physical sensations in the body have meaning and can be our guide to fulfilling our needs and helping solve our problems. When we notice and attend to our responses to situations, we are better informed to make decisions about our lives. Positive change happens when the mind and body are connected. To affect deep change, in addition to traditional Interpersonal talk therapy, I integrate a variety of approaches including, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), somatic psychotherapy, meditation, mindfulness, guided imagery, health and nutrition, and hypnosis, to name a few. For children and adolescents, my approach is with play therapies, using sand tray therapy, art therapy, Theraplay, and parent training interventions. In our work together, you'll come away with practical, applicable strategies and tools that you can use in every-day life."
