Somatic Experiencing™ Practitioner

I am a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner as well as an SE Training Assistant and I am an Approved Session Provider at the Beginning Level of the SE training. What I offer are personal SE sessions that help clients feel more like themselves. I use SE talk and touch techniques that work to help clients integrate traumatic experiences and renegotiate patterns of stress, duress and anxiety while building a robust and resilient nervous system, bringing clients from fixity back into flow. In sessions I use the SE to facilitate the completion of self-protective motor responses and the release of thwarted survival energy bound in the body, thus addressing the root cause of trauma symptoms. This is approached by gently guiding clients to develop increasing tolerance for difficult bodily sensations and suppressed emotions.

Somatic Experiencing (SE™) is a body-oriented therapeutic model applied in multiple professions and professional settings— coaching, medicine, teaching, and physical therapy—for healing trauma and other stress disorders. It is based on a multidisciplinary intersection of physiology, psychology, ethology, biology, neuroscience, indigenous healing practices, and medical biophysics and has been clinically applied for more than four decades. It is the life’s work of Dr. Peter A. Levine. To learn more about Somatic Experiencing please visit

I work with individual adults and teens and I’m currently taking new clients. We heal within the context of relationship and the nervous system requires a sense of safety to allow the mindbody to trust the process of renegotiating trauma. I am here as a resource to you. I provide a safe space for you to process, feel and listen deeply to the innate intelligence of your soma. I offer sessions on a sliding scale with my base rate at $140/55min session. I am a certified Somatic Experiencing ™ Practitioner, not a licensed therapist so I’m not taking insurance at this time. I offer sessions in-person and online via zoom.
