Somatica® and Somatic Experiencing® Therapies
More About The Somatica® and Somatic Experiencing® Therapy Modalities
I am generally pulling from both of the therapy modalities listed below unless there is specific work, or a goal, that requires focus from one modality over the other.
About the Somatica® Method
This modality is founded in positive psychology, relational psychotherapy, feminism, sexual liberation and experiential awareness. We are aiming to build upon the strengths that already exist in one's life in order to increase pleasure orientation and decrease shame. We practice energetic, verbal or physical embodiment tools around, vulnerability, consent culture, and erotic freedom. We engage in exercises where we approach any challenge or 'stuck-ness' with gentle curiosity.
About Somatic® Experiencing (SE)
Nervous system regulation relates to every person and unfortunately all of us have experienced some level of dis-regulation, and or shame, around our sexuality & relationships whether that be chronic, cultural or acute situations. SE offers a wide structure for reprocessing this nervous system dis-regulation, which can also be called trauma. The SE modality of therapy allows the wisdom of our body to lead the unfolding of our self discovery and healing.

Many hands make light work and I would be honored to support your collaborative efforts.

“I have little doubt that as individuals, families, communities, and even nations, we have the capacity to learn how to heal and prevent much of the damage done by trauma. In so doing, we will significantly increase our ability to achieve both our individual and collective dreams.” ― Peter A. Levine, Healing Trauma: A Pioneering Program for Restoring the Wisdom of Your Body
