As a trauma informed therapist I offer a somatic based approach to trauma re-negotiation through the lens of somatic experiencing. Learn how to metabolize stress and trauma and increase your capacity to live from a place of ease and presence.
Somatic Experiencing (SE) aims to resolve symptoms of stress, shock, and trauma that accumulate in our bodies. When we are stuck in patterns of fight, flight, freeze, or fawn, SE helps us release, recover, and become more resilient. SE is a body-oriented therapeutic approach to healing trauma, it is the life’s work of Dr. Peter A. Levine.
The SE approach releases traumatic shock, which is key to transforming PTSD and the wounds of emotional and early developmental attachment trauma. It offers a framework to assess where a person is “stuck” in the fight, flight, freeze, or fawn responses and provides clinical tools to resolve these fixated physiological states.
Somatic Experiencing Sessions
I am in my intermediate (second) year of the three year training to become a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP). I am offering 1 hour SE sessions at a sliding scale rate of $70-$100/ hour while I finish my training. Please call of email for more details or to set up a session.
