There is a difference between who you are and what has happened to you.
In Person & Online Therapy
Life is made up of millions of little moments and experiences. Many will pass by unnoticed while others leave behind a lasting impression that can ripple through our lives for years.
When life events wear us down we can start to feel disconnected from ourselves, our bodies and important relationships.
During these times we all deserve a space to heal and unwind; to connect with someone who will show up with empathy, and help us to navigate the connection between our stories, emotions and bodies.
What does somatic therapy help with?
Getting more in touch with your own emotions.
Processing and releasing major life events or trauma.
Having deeper and more meaningful relationships.
Creating safe boundaries for yourself.
Having new tools, encouragement and someone to listen.
“Only when we’re brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light”

Identifying Trauma in Your Body
Trauma has many faces. It can emerge from a powerful event or it can be the result of repeated emotional experiences—in our infancy, childhood or as adults.
Once the immediate threat has passed, your body and nervous system will store the memory so that your internal protection system can better recognize and respond to unsafe environments in the future.
This is how trauma can have lasting effect on your sense of self and safety in the world.
