My name is Eva Belanger, LMFT, and SEP since 2017. My experience as a therapist started in 2008 and changed drastically once I was introduced to the work of Somatic Experiencing. Originally, I came to this work through my own experiences as an Officer in the United States Air Force. After 10 years of service, and my own journey healing from combat trauma, my whole heart gravitated towards assisting those in finding some peace within themselves, no matter what they had been through.
I have worked at San Diego Hospice conducting bereavement therapy, the Veterans Administration working with Veterans struggling with PTSD, at New Mindful Life working with individuals with developmental disabilities and now in my own private practice. Additionally, I founded and directed a non profit called, "Warriors Live On," which afforded Veterans holistic wellness, Somatic Experiencing therapy, acupuncture and excursions into nature through backpacking. Last year, in 2022, I was invited to assist in teaching Somatic Experiencing to practitioners in San Diego. My continued in depth dives into SE never disappoint and I could not be happier with how this work continues to positively change me and so many others.
