Nicolette Re is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in private practice who has been practicing psychotherapy for twenty-eight years. Her experience in treating chronic stress and trauma includes: combat trauma, military sexual assault, vicarious trauma (first responders) and domestic violence to developmental traumas, betrayal trauma and childhood sexual and physical abuse. Nicolette’s interest in understanding and treating trauma comes from her pursuit to heal herself. Nicolette participated in talk therapy for twenty years before experiencing the transformative power of somatic therapy. Nicolette has made more (personal) progress using somatic therapies in the first few years than she has in the past 20 years of traditional talk therapy. It is this progress that fuels her passion to introduce others to these somatic modalities. Her journey started with trauma/tension releasing exercises that are specifically designed to evoke neurogenic tremors from the psoas muscle to help the body release the biochemical charge held in the body after trauma. After completing her level II TRE certification, Nicolette furthered her training in healing trauma by completing her five-year bioenergetics training. TRE addresses shock trauma while bioenergetics addresses developmental trauma by recognizing that our experiences leave physical imprints from our earliest days of childhood. To further strengthen her expertise in addressing developmental and betrayal trauma Nicolette completed a certification in Contemporary bioenergetics which works with the musculature of the body releasing unconscious holding patterns in the body through breathing, movement and emotional expression. While weaving TRE, bioenergetics, somatic experiencing and her own experience of healing, she provides a comprehensive and experiential healing process that is uniquely tailored to the needs of each client. Nicolette will continue to deepen her expertise in addressing preverbal trauma by beginning touch training in 2018. Nicolette is also trained in EMDR therapy.
