What is it like working with me?

 Somatically knowing internal cues of safety at the forefront, we can incorporate any of the other healing practices into a 1:1 somatic session.

View Services

A 1:1 Somatic session may look like informed therapeutic talk, mind body exercises, and other physical techniques as inquiry to integrate the mind and body connection.

As a somatic therapy practitioner, Whitney emphasizes the connection between emotional experiences and physical sensations, using bodily awareness, movement, and mindfulness techniques to promote healing and resolve trauma.

As a practitioner her goal is to help clients explore these sensations, movements, and bodily experiences to process and relieve stress, anxiety, and trauma.  

“It is an inner reprieve to turn toward our pain, trauma, and experiences and meet them with gentleness and compassion”
