About Somatic Experiencing®

When trauma is unresolved or stress accumulates in our lives, our attention is captured by repetitive stress signals and we experience symptoms like anxiety, spaciness, and disconnection. We may feel worn-out or easily overwhelmed or feel as if we are always “on-guard.” These symptoms keep us from being fully present in our lives.

By using Somatic Experiencing® to un-stick these stress signals, our awareness is liberated and can broaden to allow a fuller experience of life.

Somatic Experiencing® cultivates and utilizes a non-judgmental awareness of our inner experience in order to resolve trauma and accumulated stress patterns that hinder us on physical, psychological and spiritual levels.

The resolution of trauma and stress not only allows individuals to reclaim their lives, it allows society to find new ways to resolve conflict and live in harmony.

Individual SE Sessions

As a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, I take the role of an educator who supports individuals in developing the necessary awareness of physical and mental processes.  This supported awareness can then lead to the resolution of symptoms left over from unresolved trauma and stress.

My work as an educator in my SE sessions is informed by my training in Focusing, my Master’s degree in Counseling and over 25 years of Buddhist meditation practice.
