As a clinical social worker I have had the privilege of walking beside acutely ill and often terminal patients (and families). Many times those patients struggle with severe addiction and trauma, and want to find a different way to live. Even if addiction or trauma are not the primary issues, the pain. suffering and fear that accompanies a life limiting illness, mood disturbance, relationship conflict or loss, can be extraordinary. I believe people are the experts of their own lived experience. My job is to provide compassion, insight and direction (when required) for that pain, with the intention of creating a healing path forward.

Are you struggling with personal or career demands, persistent negative belief systems or trauma (past or present)? The professions, pressures and adversity we all face are unique, but the common mental load of 'trying to do it all' crosses all demographics and employment sectors. Individual well-being, relationships, parenting, family dynamics and careers place intersecting demands that inevitably lead to overwhelm and burnout. Addressing underlying trauma themes and negative beliefs, while pragmatically navigating our numerous responsibilities will lead to a more peaceful and successful experience, personally or professionally.

How does somatic therapy work?

Somatic therapy is a form of treatment that focuses on how the body and mind are interconnected. In this approach, physical symptoms are addressed because they may in fact signal emotional distress. Somatic therapists combine mindfulness, talk therapy, breathwork, yoga, dance, and physical manipulations of the body to help patients become more attuned to what their body is telling them.

Is EMDR a somatic therapy?

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a form of somatic therapy, as it incorporates mental and physical principles. EMDR involves remembering a traumatic experience while allowing one’s eyes to track a side-to-side visual stimulus from a therapist. This lateral eye movement is believed to diminish the painful power of the memory so that it can be discussed with a therapist.

Is somatic therapy evidence-based?

Somatic therapy has been researched and studied, and some forms of somatic therapy are found to be effective in treating a wide range of conditions. Because somatic therapy encompasses many techniques, some, such as EMDR and meditation, have been studied more than others.

What is somatic trauma therapy?

Somatic trauma therapy is based on the idea that when people experience trauma, they can become stuck in the “freeze” part of a “fight, flight, or freeze” response. In this state, trauma can manifest itself both mentally and physically—through tension in the muscles, anxiety, and stress. Popular forms of somatic trauma therapy include EMDR, sensorimotor therapy, and somatic experiencing.
