Somatic Consultation for Therapists and Coaches

Somatics in Session

Somatic consultation for therapists and coaches is offered to provide support in safely and effectively integrating somatics into your existing practice. Consultation is offered both individually and in groups.
Somatic consultation is appropriate for therapists and coaches incorporating modalities that involve physical touch, movement and non-verbal communication. If you are curious about incorporating body-based interventions but do not yet have formal training, consultation can be useful in deciding which modality(s) to pursue.

Trauma-Informed Somatic Consultation

Somatic Therapy is a conglomeration of integrative body-based healing practices in combination with traditional psychotherapeutic methods. These practices are rooted in lineages of embodiment and scientifically supported by contemporary neuroscience.

My practice is most informed by the following theories and modalities:

  • Rosen Method Bodywork
  • Somatic Experiencing
  • Hakomi
  • Cranial Sacral
  • Authentic Movement
  • Sculpting (Satir)
  • Feminist psychology
  • Liberation psychology
  • Sensorimotor Psychotherapy
  • Polyvagal Theory
  • Yoga

Somatic consultation is particularly effective for exploring and clarifying boundaries, making use of countertransference, identifying appropriate interventions, and understanding psycho-spiritual functioning through a neuroscience lens.

Somatic Countertransference in Practice

Somatic Countertransference includes the physical sensations, impulses, and emotions that arise for therapists during a session. Somatic countertransference can range from very subtle to highly uncomfortable, offering valuable information for the therapist.

By acknowledging and addressing these felt bodily responses, therapists can enhance their empathy, deepen their understanding of the client’s experience, better metabolize therapeutic content and maintain appropriate therapeutic boundaries. Utilizing somatic countertransference benefits both the therapist and the client, fostering a more attuned and effective therapeutic relationship.

Somatic consultation serves as an appropriate space to explore somatic countertransference, with an experienced mentor.

Enhance Efficacy in Trauma Resolution

Somatic consultation provides a space to explore and gain insight into client material, appropriate interventions and what is occurring for the client physiologically. Healing is not a formula, and thus our best researched interventions may prove inadequate when misaligned with a client’s nervous system state, defense structures or processing style. Knowing what to do, and when, is crucial in treating trauma.

There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

My Consultation and Mentoring Style

My style is fluid, direct and experiential. I recognize the body as a mirror of the unconscious and an integral aspect of all therapeutic processes. I firmly believe that our embodiment as therapists plays a crucial role in facilitating transformation in our clients. In the consultation space, I embody this belief by fostering a bottom-up approach to case exploration.


Consultation sessions may be centered around specific client material or therapist’s assimilation of new tools and techniques. You can expect the process to be mentally and emotionally evocative, leaving you with a feeling of inner spaciousness and inspiration.
