If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things in nature have a message you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.
Equine Assisted Therapy
Wonder in the Woods
Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a naturalistic form of healing that will help you learn how to settle and release physiological activation from your body. Very often this process helps people to reduce stress and return to a sense of regulation and mastery in their lives. SE will support you in learning how to attend to uncomfortable sensations in your body and gently unwind them through your conscious attention. SE is particularly useful in managing stress because so many of the symptoms are physiological. If you would like to know more about SE, visit our website at www.traumahealing.org. You may also read In an Unspoken Voice or Waking the Tiger by Dr. Peter Levine. During SE practice, I also draw upon Psychodynamic therapy, Family systems, Twelve Step recovery and Sobriety Maintenance.
