Are you struggling with PTSD, ADHD, anxiety, addiction, or depression? These problems could have underlying roots in trauma or intense stress. Trauma comes in many forms; abuse, accidents, surgery, neglect, war, etc. Each of these events uniquely impacts the nervous system. Recovery from these experiences could help resolve or manage symptoms. My goal is to help empower you to experience healing. We can't change situations of the past, but we can, together, become unstuck from the automatic responses of the body/mind. Somatic Experiencing (SE) may help you have more fulfilling and meaningful life.
Peter Levine (founder of SE) states: "Trauma is an internal straitjacket created when a devastating moment is frozen in time." SE is a gentle approach aimed at relieving and resolving the symptoms of PTSD and other trauma-related problems by focusing on perceived body sensations (or somatic experiences).
SE observes the autonomic nervous system and helps keep it balanced. My personal experience and observations suggest that when engaged in the grounding experience, that is have your sensory system engaged (touch, sight, smell, auditory) your mind and body resonate with your surroundings; this enhances the therapeutic and healing experience.
