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 since 2014, and became certified as a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner in 2016.

I am an Assistant at Somatic Experiencing professional trainings and an authorized provider of personal sessions at the Beginning and Intermediate levels.

I offer personal sessions (in-person where possible) online 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 $120 USD.
(For SE students on scholarship, please inquire about a reduced rate.)

Please note:  All times on the booking calendar are in Eastern Time
