Lara Eisenberg, RYT 500 M.A., Ed.M. Clinical Counselor, Somatic Experiencing, Yoga

Lara Eisenberg is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner®, Yoga Therapist, Mindfulness Instructor and Trauma Touch Therapist. She holds dual master degrees in Psychological Counseling from Columbia University. She has extensive experience and education in stress management, trauma, addiction, anxiety, depression and awakening the feminine.

Over the past 15 years, Ms. Eisenberg has worked privately and with schools, non-profits and various organizations as a Bilingual Counselor, Holistic Wellness Professional, Educator, Consultant and Yoga and Meditation Instructor. Ms. Eisenberg’s mission is to assist females in restoring the natural harmony that exists between mind, body, and spirit, and to deepen their connection to the language of the body, sensation, desires, needs, inner knowing (intuition) and emotions. Ms. Eisenberg is particularly grateful to serve at Practical Recovery as she truly believes an integral part of recovery for women is creating space for women to explore their emotional, psychological, spiritual and sexual lives. She believes absence of any of these aspects of self can be an impediment to a sound self-esteem, lasting recovery and an integrated sense of self as a woman.

Ms. Eisenberg uses traditional counseling practices, mindfulness, yoga therapy, aromatherapy, and body centered practices. She believes as women refrain from judgment and fully embrace all that they are in this very moment, they will begin to embody that which they seek. With each client encounter, she holds the intention of assisting them in reclaiming their voice and ending the pervasive cycle of shame and violence within their mind, body and heart.

In her personal life, Ms. Eisenberg uses her intense passion for dance as a beautiful form of feminine expression.
