Reichian Therapy (Orgonomic Therapy)

Monthly Blog/Newsletter!


Our therapy model is very active and engages the client in a process of transformation that is palpable after the first session. We primarily utilize the principles and techniques of Wilhelm Reich. As the father of somatic psychology, Reich created a mind/body discipline that incorporates biophysical interventions through breath, direct manipulation, and physical expression. This biophysical work is paired with verbal analysis and is contained within a strong, spirited relationship between client and therapist. The result is profound character transformation and significantly lower levels of stress, muscular contraction, and physical and psychological symptoms such as depression and anxiety. Dr. Frisch helps with relationship issues and practices dream analysis as part of her treatment approach.
