Somatic Experiencing Trauma may be a fact of life, but it doesn’t have to be a life sentence. Somatic Experiencing is a psychobiological method of addressing clients’ physical and emotional trauma conditions, and helps to give voice to their experiences without a need for them to retell the story.
SE focuses on regulation of the nervous system and offers the opportunity to engage, complete, and resolve the body’s instinctual responses to traumatic experiences.

Megan experienced PTSD after finding her daughter, Aria, when she died, and since that experience, she’s done the work to find healing in her brain and in her life. Because of this, Megan wants everyone to know that PTSD is not a life sentence, and that healing is possible.
