Emily Benson

SE™ Practitioner



Thank you for your interest in Somatic Experiencing and my services. I am a certified SE Practitioner and I am passionate about helping individuals heal from trauma.

My focus is helping children and adults heal and thrive through a non-directive, gentle approach to healing, including therapeutic touch work if desired. I have advanced training in developmental rupture and repair. I also incorporate Sand Tray therapy to compliment my SE framework.

I look forward to the possibility of working with you and welcome both email or phone inquiries about my services.  I accept most major insurance carriers, private pay and sliding scale for those who qualify.
