In 2016, I became Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner and received the SEP certificate upon completion of the 216-hour Somatic Experiencing® Professional training and additional supervision and personal session requirements. My areas of specialty include car accidents, falls, concussions, pelvic issues, as well as birth trauma.
In November, 2018, I will have completed the two year NARM training. The NeuroAffective Relational Model™ is a model for helping individuals who are experiencing disruptions in their daily life as a result of developmental trauma (neglect, adoption, abuse, childhood medical issues, disrupted attachment, divorce, death). Symptoms resulting from developmental trauma may include chronic pain, chronic tension, difficulty navigating day-to-day stress, insomnia, procrastination, digestive issues, chronic illness, and more.
In 2013, I became a Nutritious Movement™ Certified Restorative Exercise Specialist. I have studied with Katy Bowman, biomechanist in-person and online and have received post-certificate training in gait mechanics, diastasis recti, and biomechanics.
In 2012, I completed specialized Tummy Time Method™ training with Michelle Emanuel, OT. This works supports parents in learning the skills needed to create a satisfying and enjoyable tummy time experience for their baby.
As for life away from my table, I’m a long awaited mama to two girlies, a one-year-old and a nine-year-old year old, an occasional knitter, anatomy nerd & personal growth junkie. I am fascinated with by the subject of trauma healing and have a growing stack of books I am slowly making my way through. I'm trying to make peace with the fact that I will never know all that I want to know.
My passion is helping people find greater ease and health in their bodies. I look forward to supporting you on your journey.
