Somatic Experiencing (SE), developed by Dr. Peter Levine, is a client-centered approach to healing trauma that creatively honors the wisdom of the nervous system. We aim to build resilience and somatic awareness, uncoupling traumatic memories from our present-time body response so that we feel more in our power and more in choice, moment to moment. In sessions, we use dialogue, supportive touch, and exploration of emotions, memories, and movement in service of nervous system regulation. We work in a titrated way to create a safe container where you can transform stuck places and come back more fully to yourself.
Trauma occurs and becomes symptomatic when the nervous system is overwhelmed and cannot mobilize effectively. SE may be helpful to you if you have been in accidents, experienced sexual or relational trauma, have a history of prenatal or birth trauma, or you notice that you are struggling with pain, anxiety, depression, or difficulty in relationships. I will work gently with you to create a safe container and support you towards greater ease, resilience, and well-being.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy supports nervous system health and honors the client's self-healing process. The pacing is slow and the touch is typically still. In this gentle but powerful work, I listen to your body through my hands, facilitating the release of resistance patterns and allowing the nervous system to settle. My approach to all sessions is trauma-informed and client-centered.
Craniosacral sessions can relieve emotional stress and provide relief for a number of conditions including birth-related trauma, accident recovery, chronic pain, headaches, anxiety, and grief. Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy can provide nurturing during pregnancy and the postpartum period, and can benefit newborns after birth as well. This work will support you in grounding, centering, and unwinding physical and emotional tension patterns.
Pre & Perinatal Integration and Support
Sessions are informed by my study with Ray Castellino, Mary Jackson, and Tara Blasco through the Castellino Training Foundations training. Our bodies and nervous systems hold and remember the somatic and emotional imprints of our earliest experiences during gestation, birth, and first several years of life, and these imprints can have a profound effect on our physical and mental health. Within a supportive container and using the principles that guide this work, we re-negotiate these early imprints and access more empowerment and inner freedom. Pre & perinatal (PPN) sessions are structured like mini womb-surround turns, providing a loving and un-pressured relational space to explore and work through early developmental trauma. For more on womb surrounds, take a look at the Castellino Training Website. If you are interested in PPN work together, 90-minute sessions are an option.
