Somatic Experiencing® is a body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma and other stress disorders. It is the life’s work of Dr. Peter A. Levine, resulting from his multidisciplinary study of stress physiology, psychology, ethology, biology, neuroscience, indigenous healing practices, and medical biophysics, together with over 45 years of successful clinical application. The SE approach releases traumatic shock, which is key to transforming PTSD and the wounds of emotional and early developmental attachment trauma.*
Symptoms of trauma can include chronic pain, anxiety, hyper-vigilance, depression, fatigue, digestive disorders, migraines, and more. Whether the traumatic events in our lives feel large or small, brief or enduring, utilizing the tools of Somatic Experiencing, I will help you track and organize the sensations of your mind-body-self in order to access resolution. Stuck-ness gives way to flow, fatigue lifts to reveal vitality, and anxiety disperses into calm.
