Chronic stress can take its toll on our bodies and minds. I work with individuals from a body-centred framework that connects and integrates our experience whether it be our sense of meaning, emotions, thoughts or the “felt sense” in the body. By using mindful awareness, I facilitate your process of accessing the “felt” sense in your own body and support the here-and-now shift that wants to happen. I have experience and training in working with early developmental trauma, including birth and prenatal trauma.
I am a Registered Social Worker with the Alberta College of Social Workers in addition to being a member of the Clinical Registry.
I have a certificate in Somatic Experiencing ® and am a registered Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner (SEP). Somatic Experiencing® (SE) was developed by Dr. Peter Levine, author of Waking The Tiger: Healing Trauma. SE® is a naturalistic way to reduce effects of chronic stress and trauma by facilitating the body’s inherent capacity for health. This modality works with the nervous system to restore a state of flow and vitality, which becomes compromised from effects of trauma.
If you have experienced ‘talk therapy’ and perhaps have found its benefits haven’t “stuck” with you, I encourage you to contact me. I offer a 15 minute complimentary telephone consultation to discuss any questions you may have and to see if body-centred therapy may be your next step to healing.
