Eden Himidian, MA, LCSW, RYT
I am psychotherapist and yoga instructor with specific training in Trauma Sensitive Yoga Therapy and Yoga Informed Psychotherapy. As a clinician, I work with people to integrate their life experiences into their sense of self while mindfully connecting to values in order to create the life they want to be truly present in.
Joining in the therapeutic process can be fulfilling, challenging, vulnerable, and inspiring. I utilize evidence-based approaches along with a focus on the mind body connection to empower clients to make the changes they would like to see in their lives. I have worked with individuals at many stages of their journey and feel honored each time I am able to join in any leg of that endeavor. I am so grateful for the connections and insights developed in the moments that feel both big and small. I find there is incredible power in the silence and reflection along the way, and my goal is to create a safe space to explore the full range of experiences that occur within the therapy space.
I obtained my Bachelor’s degree at Knox College and my Master’s degree in clinical social work at the University of Chicago’s School of Social Service Administration. Prior to joining Wildflower, I was the Clinical Director of a Mood, Anxiety and Trauma-Related Disorders Program at the residential level of care at ERC Insight Behavioral Health Centers. I have worked extensively with individuals with mood, anxiety, trauma-related disorders and eating disorders treating both individuals, couples and families. I have also worked with women in various stages of life, focusing on helping them navigate relationships, perinatal transition, parenting, and menopause. My aim is to support clients in mindfully managing the inevitable complexities of transitions and finding peace in the chaos of change. My clinical training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO-DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Exposure and Response Prevention, and Trauma Sensitive Yoga Therapy guide my holistic approach towards helping people in their emotional and behavioral development.
