Somatic Experiencing

60-minute 1:1 Session

Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a body-based trauma intervention created by Dr. Peter Levine that works with the body’s innate healing capacity to release trauma physically and emotionally. Somatic Experiencing believes trauma is inherently physiological as much as it is psychological. He noticed that traditional talk therapy trauma approaches can trigger resistance, be painful, and retraumatizing.

 

Excess activated energy that is not discharged, stagnates in the body as trauma and can have physical and/or psychological symptoms. Unresolved stress can have extremely painful and debilitating psychosomatic consequences. 

 

Somatic Experiencing focuses on slowing down—creating space and time to stretch out overwhelming experiences so that the nervous system can catch up and complete stagnated biological stress responses.

what clients are saying about SE

As someone who’s been to a number talk therapists and found little benefit, I was skeptical of any other sort of therapy.

 

However, my stress and anxiety can grow out of control sometimes and I had faith that Cacky could help. I worked with Cacky on specific situations in my life including IBS and frustration with my career.

 

Cacky was amazing and catered to the scenarios and issues I presented to her. I was relieved to realize that Cacky’s approach is much different from talk therapy. It’s difficult to explain how it works exactly but it’s much more focused on the body and the body’s reaction to your thoughts and feelings.

 

Sure enough, after only one session with Cacky, I had the confidence at work that I had been looking for and I was promoted to a new position within a few weeks.

 

I know this sounds cheesy but Cacky truly knows what she’s doing and she can help you.

I’ve been through more than a handful of different approaches to talk therapy, but nothing as powerful as even a single SE session.

 

I’ve gone into each session composed and disconnected from my emotional and physical self, just from the rush of life, sure that I’ll be in the same state when we wrap up.

 

Each session though, I’ve delved viscerally into body and mind into depths I didn’t even know were there and each time it has surprised and recentered me in an incredibly powerful way.

 

If you have the opportunity to engage in an SE session with Cacky and entrust yourself to her kind, present, empathic guidance, you will without a doubt deepen the experience of your personal growth and your mind/body connection.
