Psychotherapy/YogaPsych® with Rachel Allyn, Ph.D., L.P.

Rachel AllynMind-Body Psychotherapy

I work from a holistic framework, blending Western psychology and neuroscience with Eastern practices (including Buddhist psychology, mindfulness and yogic philosophy). In addition to engaging in traditional “talk therapy,” I work with clients to help them understand the wisdom of their body and how to use it as a resource. This style of somatic psychotherapy can elicit another layer of healing, going deep into the places where old or stuck trauma resides. Utilizing my experience as a psychologist, yoga teacher and lifelong athlete, I created <em>YogaPsych&copy;</em>, a mind-body therapy modality for clients to “get out of the head” and use their body, breath and intuition as a tool for healing. At times, this means using any combination of the outdoor trails, the facilitation of assisted yoga postures, guided breathing, meditation and dialogue to help you transform and feel supported. My approaches to therapy promotes restoration and vitality, and my style is both directive and compassionate.


Our coaching together focuses on helping you identify thoughts and behaviors that don’t serve you. This allows you to let go of stuck patterns and live from your most authentic self. We collaborate on a plan and create objectives to meet your mind-body health and wellness goals and intentions. You’ll be provided with psychological education and homework assignments tailored specifically for you.

Workshops & Retreats

In addition to private sessions with individuals and couples, I lead retreats and workshops on topics ranging from “Yoga for Emotional Eating,” “Yoga to Enhance Sensuality,” and “Yoga for Overachievers and Perfectionists.” Retreats can be tailored to your needs including the option for a women’s only retreat, a couple’s getaway, or yoga combined with surfing, among others.
