SE™ PractitionerSE Assistant


Somatic Intervention

I am a licensed, clinically trained social worker with over 35 years of experience as a psychotherapist, 20 years practicing SE. I have particular experience treating sexual abuse, attachment, and military trauma. For many years I have been a SETI approved provider of personal sessions and case consults (individual and group) for SE students at all levels of training.  Maintaining a private practice both in person and online, I offer consultations and webinars to people all over the world. I have created a popular training series for "talk" therapists who would like to introduce somatic work into their practice: Somatic Intervention. This includes specific courses in how to work with victims of sexual abuse, as well as how to identify and work with developmental trauma; these modules are open to all SE students.  Feel free to contact me at: or
