Somatic therapy is a broad term used to describe any therapy
which links mind, body, and emotions.
The somatic therapy that I use is called SOMATIC EXPERIENCING (SE).
This approach is specifically designed to address stress and trauma, with a focus
on nervous system regulation.
The goal of using this method is to move us forward into full, free, conscious living.
Somatic sessions with me are a combination of talking, bodily awareness, and movement.
I have recently started offering somatic touch sessions, either while seated or lying down.
Counseling is a type of talk therapy which sees each individual holistically.
This means looking at both internal and external experiences in the present.
I work with individuals in my practice on the topics of their choice.
Common topics include emotional regulation, relationships, and getting in touch with your wants, needs & preferences.
Looking at the past for the purposes of processing and understanding can also be useful, depending on what each person is looking for.
Somatic practices are usually a part of each session.
Dance is where I feel safest and allow myself to be the most vulnerable.
I discovered conscious movement and ecstatic dance in 2019, and have been
hungrily consuming and practicing it ever since.
These dance methods are like meditations in movement and can be a wonderful support in addition to somatic therapy.
I find dance and other physical practices are wonderful embodiment practices, allowing us to reconnect with our bodies in ways that feel both fun and safe.
I am currently offering dance practices both individually and in groups.
