About SOMAtherapy


Welcome to SOMAtherapy

About SOMAtherapy

My practice integrates current research and interventions with a focus upon nervous system activation to thought, experience, environment and memory. With gentle awareness on the dynamic and complex interconnections between movement within the body and construction of thought and narrative within the brain it is possible to become aware of past patterns of survival and response which distort life and experience in the present.

Individuals come to SOMAtherapy with a variety of life issues, both psychological and physical. Somatic Therapy has a core belief in working with the client in the here-and-now rather than primarily exploring the cognitive history of trauma. Through mindful and somatic awareness of the past and present it is possible to differentiate between what was then and what is now. SOMAtherapy can be a helpful adjunct to professional work with mental health providers or a stand alone therapy to gain greater insight and personal mastery.
