About

Afra Moenter, Ph.D., L.P.C. is a contemplative, mystic, homesteader, nature lover, and ordinary woman.

Afra’s academic training involves a Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Sciences with a specialization in Neuropsychology and a M.A. in Educational Psychology from the University of Cologne, Germany. Her therapeutic approach reflects the synthesis of various psychotherapeutic trainings that she has completed over the past 20 years:

  • Gestalt therapy; a method of awareness which enables the client to focus on his/her experience in the present moment.
  • Sensorimotor Psychotherapy; a process that uses the body (rather than cognition or emotion) as a primary entry point into processing traumatic life-experiences.
  • Hakomi Somatics; a psychotherapeutic approach based on the principle that mind and body jointly express and reflect deeply held, often unconscious beliefs about oneself and others.
  • Trauma Dynamics, a psychotherapeutic method working specifically with individual, familial and cultural trauma.
