It is your birthright to fully inhabit your body.
Yet trauma and oppression often push us out of our bodies and out of the present moment. And this is the very place where we can begin - reclaiming our bodies and in turn reclaiming our minds and souls.
your guide in somatic reclamation
Hi there! I'm Dr. Cacky and I have spent over 15 years studying the power of words on the body, mind, soul, and society. In my undergrad, I studied art therapy and holistic psychology at Lesley University. After which I received my Masters of Education in art-based activism and social entrepreneurship from Lesley's Graduate School of Arts and Social Sciences.
While adjunct teaching and deepening my embodied practice, I earned my PhD in Depth Psychology with an emphasis in Somatic Studies at Pacifica Graduate Institute.
I have cultivated a diverse somatic toolkit to support client's on their healing journey. I am a Master Somatic Movement Therapist and Educator, Somatic Experiencing© Practitioner, and RYT-500. Additionally, I am an experienced Reiki Master practitioner and have done training in energy work, embodied social justice, EFT, NLP, and somatic attachment therapy. I am also a non-denominational reverend. I draw from my eclectic background to meet each client's unique needs and goals.
My current work is centered around the internalization of language, narrative, and trauma on a somatic level and how it affects interpersonal and intrapersonal relationships. I am deeply passionate about social justice, the arts, intergenerational trauma, and somatics.
I live in the Boston area with my beloved partner and cat.
my current offerings
I've done lots of body work and talk therapy before, but the insights I got with Cacky were like nothing I've experienced before. The memories held in the cells of my body, especially my arms and hands, became conscious to me.
Like I could finally understand how my body felt about the decisions my brain was making.
And my body was wise. I should be trusting my body more. Thank you Cacky for enabling these insights, I don't think I could have gotten them any other way!
