Improve Your Life with Somatic Experiencing

Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a gentle method for healing accumulated stress.

SE provides healing at a very deep level. It restores energy, increases capacity & resilience, and amplifies life force and your ability to create what you want in your world. In other words with SE, you will feel like yourself again even if you “don’t recall” what “feeling like yourself” is like!

SE will help you manage your life with more ease and energy. You’ll begin to feel more peace when dealing with your kids, your partner, and the typical stresses that come with living in the world.

Is Somatic Experiencing right for you…

Do you regularly experience one or more of the following?

  • Feeling stuck or overwhelmed
  • Lack of energy or feeling “shut down”
  • Stressed out
  • Angry, anxious, or over-reactive
  • Worried that something may be “wrong with me”

Has one of these happened to you?

  • An accident, fall with injury, or other serious injury
  • A dysfunctional or difficult childhood (you may tell yourself it was “not that bad”)
  • Extended or long term amounts of stress

Perhaps you or someone else has said something like this to you?

  • “It wasn’t that bad.” “Get over it.”
  • “You’re too sensitive.” You’re over sensitive.”
  • “I need to feel better?” I have got to get better.” “I can’t stand feeling like this anymore.”
  • “I have to stop over-reacting.” “I’m hurting my (kids, relationship, job, etc.) by acting this way.”

If any of the above descriptions resonate, try Somatic Experiencing.

“Working with Katie has been a transformative experience. She is a wonderful teacher and a kind and thoughtful guide. SE is experiential so creating a safe environment is important. Katie’s sessions are grounded and gentle and I feel like my time with her has created lasting change in my life. I am more open to new experiences.

I don’t retreat like I used to and I feel more confident in my ability to handle whatever life throws my way.

Katie took me by the hand and guided me on a path I had passed over time and again; “Healing, This Way –>” would be the sign I’d put at the trail head of working with Katie.”

~ Randi Brewer, Texas

“I have long-term experience in meditation and bodywork and yet I felt I held some shock trauma in my system. I felt that Somatic Experiencing would help me release the trauma.

Katie provided me with tools to deal with the energy charge of shock trauma which helped me to feel safe. Katie has a lot of qualities that facilitate healing in a professional way. She has long-term experience and knowledge in the field and she also is well organized, caring, attentive and heart centered.

Between sessions, Katie gave me tools I could use on my own. While doing my homework, I felt the energy release followed by a sensation of stillness and peace. I doubt it would have happened if I had not had the session with Katie.

By the way, Katie is awesome! I feel safe enough now and have some really great tools to take with me. I am so thankful for Katie’s help!”

~ Annalina, Germany

“I bottle emotion. I keep things in and have noticed that I internalize everyone’s struggle. My mind was suffering, my body, and my emotional health, too.

Katie’s work is something I hadn’t explored yet as a solution to my internal struggle. My session with Katie was delightfully unexpected. I hadn’t expected to feel much of anything or even know how to acknowledge my body, so when I found myself responding to the simplest suggestions of release, I was shocked that my body was so willing to let it go.

I’ve incorporated more quiet time for myself. I feel less anxious. I’ve learned to slow down. I have a lot going on and I don’t want to forget to slow down. I plan to work with Katie again!”

~ MHJ from Los Angeles, CA
