SE™ Practitioner


Carolyn B. Cooper, MS, LMFT, SEP, SAP

Somatic Experiencing takes healing to a deeper level, in a way that continually moves me. Combined with ‘top-down’ approaches, it helps identify strengths and intentions beneath painful survival patterns. Shame, fear and anger often transform into vital life energy, which enables a shift to more dignified, masterful thriving.

As a private practice psychotherapist based in SF & Marin, I primarily work with adults, but also love to assist children in turning core wounds into core gifts. To do so, I integrate SE, CBT, Therapeutic Touch, EMDR, Solution-Focused Therapy, Stages of Change, Motivational Interviewing, Drama, Art & Play Therapy techniques. I am comfortable working with a range of challenges: Trauma, mood & anxiety disorders, relationship issues, substance abuse &/or process addiction (compulsive gambling, shopping, sex), codependency, life transitions, career-related decisions, existential questions.

SETI-approved provider of sessions for credit toward the Somatic Experiencing certificate to students at all levels of he professional training program and consultations to individuals at the beginning and intermediate levels.
