Dr. Abi Blakeslee, SEP, CMT, LMFT, Ph.D.
Thank you for your interest in Somatic Experiencing. I am SE faculty and a licensed marriage and family therapist. I have a Ph.D. in Clinical and Somatic Psychology. My dissertation, with a committee that included Dr. Daniel Siegel, generated original research on the role of implicit memory in Somatic Experiencing. My clinical experience is with individuals, couples, children, and families treating a broad base of issues. I draw from over a decade and a half of experience with SETI, teach throughout the country, and consult worldwide. I am currently conducting evidence-based research on SE to promote its use in trauma-informed statewide care initiatives. Recently I relocated from Los Angeles to Bozeman Montana (right outside of Yellowstone National Park), and currently specialize in providing SE individual and group consultations for SE students of all levels. I have faculty level online group case consultations on the first Saturday of each month. You can join by going to my website www.abiblakeslee.com. I focus on giving practical details in building SE skills for beginning students. For Intermediate students we explore how to integrate various frameworks into your SE practice such as psychodynamic therapy, object/relations, the psychobiological principals of attachment, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, and SE touch skills. SE Skype personal sessions are available under certain circumstances. Please feel free to call me at (310) 748-3286, email at email@example.com, or sign up to receive information about trainings, lectures, and SE research at: www.abiblakeslee.com.
