Somatic Experiencing

Therapy Closeup_edited.jpg

Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a bottom up therapeutic model aimed at resolving thwarted survival responses so the nervous system can return to a homeostatic rhythm and the person can reestablish resilience and ease within their lived experience. Unlike traditional cognitive therapies that support processing experiences in a top down fashion, SE begins with the body's responses to stress and trauma. Sessions focus on building interoceptive awareness within a container of safety so the body can complete unresolved self protective motor responses. Together, the client and coach explore body based tools and techniques based on real time nervous system responses in order to support the system in finding regulation and settling. By addressing the root cause of the symptoms, SE offers a restoration of the innate wisdom of the body. For more information on SE,  please visit
