Clarity Somatic Therapies
I partner with you for an embodied journey, whether that means becoming more present in your body, mapping your overwhelming responses, renegotiating memories, or deepening your connection to self, others, and the world in a meaningful and actionable way.
I bring Somatic Experiencing (SE) together with DARe to help my clients navigate the survival and attachment needs that were often at odds in their childhood. I hold the perspective that regulation and co-regulation are extremely important tools, and yet so is expanding your capacity to tolerate a range of experience and emotion so you can continue to engage with life. My role is to offer you the support, the safe container, and the foundational skills needed for healthy, dynamic relating to self and others.
Sometimes developmental stress becomes more physically engrained, which might look like chronic tension patterns, chronic illness, pain, fatigue, or ongoing inflammation in the body. When these are acutely present, I may suggest we incorporate a hands-on approach of craniosacral therapy and SE touch work to slowly build regulation/co-regulation and capacity in your nervous system.
