Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a revolutionary approach to healing

trauma and other issues related to stress.

Created by Dr. Peter A. Levine over decades of research and clinical application, SE is used around the world as a way to release traumatic shock from the body and resolve symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and early developmental attachment trauma.

I began studying SE in 2014, and was certified as a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner in 2016.

I am an Assistant at the Beginning, Intermediate  and Advanced levels of the Somatic Experiencing professional training, and an Authorized Provider of Personal Sessions at the Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced levels. At this time, I do not offer case consultations.

I offer personal sessions to practitioners-in-training, and I incorporate SE into my practice as a counsellor, therapist, and coach.

Our Somatic Experiencing sessions will take place virtually. If you have questions about working online, and whether or not it is appropriate for you, please use the contact form below to get in touch.

Session fee is $150 USD.

Although I am currently not accepting new counselling clients, students of the Somatic Experiencing training who have previously had SE sessions with me, can book by emailing me at or submitting the contact form below.
