Ricki Bernstein

SE™ Practitioner

I am a licensed clinically trained social worker with over 35 years of experience as a psychotherapist, 18 years practicing SE. I have particular experience treating all aspects of sexuality, attachment issues, 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. I also love teaching Introductions to SE to diverse audiences in mental health, military, hospital, corporate and community settings. Maintaining a private practice both in person and online, I offer Zoom sessions, 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 the sexually abused, as well as how to identify and work with developmental trauma; these modules are open to all SE students.
