Hi, I am Erica, a queer somatic healer who focuses on issues of abandonment, anxiety, anger, grief, trauma, holistic and spiritual health. My approach is intuitive, and you will find me non-judgmental, caring and interactive with you in your process.
I have been on my own journey through the fire, and would like to extend a hand to help you make your way through yours.
I am a student of Hakomi, a somatic based assisted mindfulness practice, as well as have a certificate in Embodied Touch and Healing. I am in weekly consultation for this practice with the teacher of the method, who is also my supervisor.
This form of somatic touch work happens on a table, but is not a traditional massage. It is derived from a combination of the teachings of carnio sacral, Hakomi method, and other somatic practices. It involves light holds and somatic inquiry. If touch is something that might be supportive of your process, we can discuss this. It is not necessary in order for therapy to work, but can be a healing addition.
My practice is framed in the understanding that we live in a culture built on systemic injustice. One of my passions is working with people around understanding the ways they are affected by it, addressing those harms, and healing from them.
These are exciting, scary and heartbreaking times. All of your process is welcome here: grief, anger, rage, numbness, or something else.
