Kate F. Busby MA MS LAc SEP

Licensed Acupuncturist, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner

My practice is focused on holistically treating the impacts of trauma on the body through trauma-informed acupuncture, somatic experiencing, and somatic regulation and resiliency practices. I work to support physiological regulation and a felt sense of safety while repairing the ways chronic stress, untreated shock, developmental trauma and ongoing experiences of oppression can disrupt healthy physical functioning. For me, healing doesn’t just mean alleviating symptoms. By definition, healing is about integration and connectedness.

I have found that I have the most success working with people who want to take an active role in their own healing, value an embodied, holistic approach, and are committed to growth and self-inquiry as part of the process.

Somatic Experiencing sessions are not covered by insurance and are cash fee only. I am currently in-network for trauma-informed acupuncture with Regence Blue Cross Blue Shield, Providence, United Health Care and Pacific Source.
