Integrative Somatic Psychotherapy

“Trauma is perhaps the most avoided, ignored, belittled, denied, misunderstood and untreated cause of human suffering”

Peter Levine - Founder of Somatic Experiencing and Author of “Waking the Tiger” and “In an Unspoken Voice”.
Integrative Somatic Psychotherapy is a present-centered, and experiential healing process which works with the  body’s innate capacity to heal. Together we integrate psychotherapy with  various somatically based healing modalities  to be able to access and heal trauma which is deeply held  in the body.

When trauma is held in the body it often causes us to develop coping strategies which negetavely impact our lives. These patterns Include mood disorders,  fears of intimacy, difficulties in relationship and work, and addictions.   Our nervous system becomes dis-regulated from these experiences which keep us from feeling safe in our body.  Most importantly, unprocessed trauma can leave us feeling alone, and isolated .  Our relationship to ourself can feel broken.

Integrative Somatic Psychotherapy is informed by the latest neurosicence research related to trauma and attachment theory. Using modalities such as Somatic Experiencing, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing and the Comprehensive Resource Model, we discover together the most effective approach to your healing process. This integration is what makes Integrative Somatic Psychotherapy different from traditional or "talk" therapy. Many of us are aware of how our personal history affects our present situation but cannot always translate that awareness to  more lasting change.
