Somatics Simplified:

The Workbook

I help trauma survivors build better relationships with their mind, body, and loved ones by teaching science-backed strategies through workshops, interactive guides, and live teaching.

I’m a licensed therapist and mental health educator who is passionate about making the world a more compassionate and connected place by breaking cycles of generational trauma. Guided by curiosity, centering compassion.

Why a Workbook?

Over 75% of people who purchase an online course never finish the material.

I wrote this because I truly believe in this material and I want you to have access to what I learned in graduate school. I chose an interactive workbook because I want you to be able to come back to this as often as you’d like and quickly get the information you need.
