Dawn A. Averitt, CMT, SEP, NARM, BASE

In 2010 I discovered Somatic Experiencing (SE) and had no idea how powerful this discovery would be not only for my clients but for my own recovery journey as well.

I know about trauma academically and experientially. Traumas has made my journey through life a challenging and rewarding adventure from birth to adulthood. A comprehensive set of recovery tools has helped me build trauma resilience, This experience fuels me as I help my clients develop on their own recovery adventure.

In order to face our deepest wounds, we must build the capacity to manage the activation (anxiety/stress) that comes with the face to face encounter with our traumatic events. We must face the tiger (trauma) and support the defensive responses (fight/flight) that didn't happen at the time of the event.

My goal is to free my clients from long held functional freeze, freeing that part in the nervous system that holds you back from living the vibrant life you are meant to live and experiencing the aliveness that fuels your joy and passion.

I continued learning more and more about trauma recovery. Using both a touch model (table) and psychotherapeutic model (chair to chair). With my 10 years in Somatic Experiencing and my bodywork background, I have unique perspective and a natural gift for this work.

The healing journey is an adventure. If you are ready to begin or continue your recovery journey, be an explorer of self, it would be an honor to journey and discover with you.
