Somatic Experiencing (SE) is an integrative mind-body approach to dealing with stress, anxiety, and trauma. It utilizes somatic awareness and mindfulness as a primary orientation. The basic principles and concepts of SE include titration, resourcing, and pendulation (see more below). My SE work is grounded in a keen understanding of the body and the affect of cultural and socio-political dynamics on the body. I support my client’s by holding space, offering compassionate presence, and offer gentle invitations to listen to the wise intelligence of the body through tracking sensation, cultivating somatic awareness, practicing grounding practices, using imagery/visualization, and exploring intuitive movement. Somatic Experiencing work helps identify areas of the body that are holding onto past experiences in the form of unresolved flight, fight, or freeze energies.
