SERVICES

There are few more pleasant places to do errands than on College Ave. Although the more practically-oriented businesses in the district may sometimes be overlooked by the dining and shopping options, the area actually has nearly everything a household needs in the way of getting stuff done.

If you’ve got the time, you can park your car and make a day of picking up all the things you need, perhaps popping into a shop or two while you’re at it. It’s definitely better than driving around town all day.

Of course, there’s a charming post office for picking up packages — and even a UPS store. Dry cleaners abound, so your clothes will never be wrinkled. Pop into the copy shop to print Christmas cards, head to the florist for center pieces, or drop off family photos to be framed. Later, settle money needs at the bank...

College Ave. from
the Second Floor
Todd Harvey, MFT

Unbeknownst to the naked eye, College Ave. has a healthy and thriving symbiotic relationship between wellness professionals and local merchants. At the corner of Alcatraz and College is Cask, a high-end liquor store; my office is above it along with several other therapists, an acupuncturist, a spiritual counselor, and a body worker. I realize that the location of my psychotherapy office is not an abnormality. Rockridge has two worlds: from the street, we see the hustle and bustle of a thriving merchant retail neighborhood; above the thriving restaurants, pubs, banks, and local retail is a plethora of people dedicated to making you feel grounded, more alive, and healthy.

The neighborhood and sense of community around the ground floor merchants creates a context that compliments the therapy that I do. With couples, I use Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), a modality that has an 80 to 90% success rate.  Many of my couples grab a coffee at Cole’s, Peet’s, or Philz prior to their appointment.  Often, by the end of the first session, there is a sense of hope due to sparking the love bond that was previously stifled due to the nasty dance they've been caught in. After the second or third session, many make a date of their evening and grab dinner at the Wood Tavern, A’Cote, or another option. They use the time after their appointment as a way of having a connecting date and processing what happened in therapy, or simply changing gears and enjoying an evening out together.

For people experiencing relational difficulties or challenges with their sense self, I use Re-Creation of the Self (RCS) therapy. RCS focuses on transformation and empowerment of the “self” to engage the world from a sense of worthiness rather than ruminating and living life through negative patterns. So, beware, many of the people spending money in the stores before and after sessions may be engaging their felt sense of worthiness as they walk by you, purchase candy, or get their hair cut.

The neighborhood can be a helpful resource for people healing from trauma. After finishing an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) session, I’ll invite my clients to utilize what Rockridge has to offer as they reground themselves in the present. They focus on present state experiences rather than thought rumination. I’ll have my clients stroll through the neighborhood and notice 10 things that draw their attention and then notice the effect on their breathing and in their bodies. Or notice the flavor of the ice cream at Tara’s and how it feels when it melts in their mouths. Or indulge in a meatball sandwich at Southie. I often suggest they treat themselves to a mini-self-date in Rockridge before going home.

I see how this neighborhood is a resource for my clients, and I know for a fact that local merchants on the ground floor are getting a lot of foot traffic due to weekly visitors coming to Rockridge as a part of their wellness routine. Rockridge isn't just a great neighborhood with lively character; it is also a haven where many people take respite as they heal themselves.

Todd Harvey is a Psychotherapist in Rockridge who specializes in helping couples restore their bond, people with trauma to heal their nervous systems, and individuals gain access to their innate worthiness. toddharveymft.co
