Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate in Washington
Supervised by Emily Hinman-Benedict, LMHC
As a somatically-trained therapist, I draw upon my knowledge of the neurobiology of attachment to create spaces where clients can continually arrive at a felt sense of relationship, build neural networks of connection and heal attachment wounds.
Neurobiology and various somatic methods inform my work with trauma spectrum disorders including acute and complex trauma.
Somatic Therapy as a lens and tool opens possibilities to accessing, understanding and healing our deepest wounds. It is a welcome antidote to being stuck when so many of us have struggled to find a way out of how we experience the world. I attended the Somatic Counseling Psychology program at California Institute of Integral Studies and continue to root my work in somatics.
Hakomioffers spaces that feel incredibly safe and unwaveringly curious. It uses the magic of the felt sense and the present moment to explore and deepen our experiences of ourselves and the world around us, and opens doors to new ways of experiencing those worlds. As a Professional Skills Level 1 graduate, Hakomi continually guides my work.
My training in somatics is largely based on the neurobiology of overwhelming experience and its influence on our well-being through affecting our emotional, cognitive and physical perceptions of ourselves, others, and environments. Somatic methods of trauma therapy work include thoughts and emotions but facilitate sensations of safety at the level of the nervous system, giving them the ability to create profound shifts toward healing.
