Somatic Attachment Psychotherapy

I offer Somatic Attachment Psychotherapy: “Bringing the Body into Practice” for Adults to support individual engagement through a relational process. “Bringing the Body into Practice, as an orientation, understands the body as a historian of one’s life and the holder of legacies of historical, transgenerational, relational and early attachment, and socially perpetuated traumas” Dr. Lisa Mortimore.

By accessing embodied ways of knowing within the safety of a therapeutic relationship, we begin to create new openings and space that can bring new awareness to the stories of our lives. This process fosters our ability to rewrite our story and reclaim our true self. The Bringing the Body into Practice orientation provides an opportunity to process traumatic experiences, bringing more integration and vitality into the embodied self.


All Somatic Attachment Sessions are 60-minutes at $120.
