In 2010, I discovered Somatic Experiencing (SE) and had no idea how powerful this discovery would be not only for my clients but for my own recovery journey, as well.

I know about trauma academically and experientially. Traumas have made my journey through life a challenging and rewarding adventure from birth to adulthood. A comprehensive set of recovery tools

has helped me build trauma resilience - an experience that fuels me as I help my

clients develop on their own recovery adventure.

In order to face our deepest wounds, we must build the capacity to manage the

activation (anxiety/stress) that comes with the face to face encounter with our

traumatic events. Facing the tiger (trauma) and supporting the defensive responses

(fight/flight) that didn’t get to happen at the time of the event.


Freeing my clients from long-held functional freeze. That part in the nervous system that holds them back from living the vibrant life they are meant to live and experiencing the aliveness that fuels their joy and passion.


I continued learning more and more about trauma recovery. Using both a touch model (table) to psychotherapeutic model (chair to chair). However, this is not psychotherapy.


The healing journey is an adventure. If you are ready to begin or continue your recovery journey, be an explorer of self, it would be an honor to journey and discover with you.
