INTEGRATIVE TRAUMA SOLUTIONS
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) with a Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling. I have many years of experience as a Somatic Experiencing Educator and Certified Trauma Releasing Exercise Practitioner. I use Internal Family Systems as well to pinpoint and release unresolved stress, trauma and tension in the body.
I have always been interested in holistic healing of the body, mind, and spirit. I was a former fitness and NIA teacher, love to exercise, move my body and dance. My own history of chronic body pain led me to explore the realms of Somatic Experiencing (SE) and Tension/Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE) where for the first time in years I found relief from pain that was caused by the trauma I held in my body. Since then, I has been sold on this process.
I happily live in Santa Fe, NM. In my spare time I dance, hike in the nearby mountains, seek out which restaurant has the best green chili, and keep up-to-date with the latest news about healing trauma in the body somatically.
