Individual work is for clients who are ready to take action over their lives. This is the most successful, and efficient way to find out what has been in the way of your healing, and take back control.
Our goal is to help you build the muscle memory of how to respond when a feeling comes up, and this is exactly what you'll practice in each session with us. You'll get specialized attention that focuses directly on your unique needs, and patterns to help you make change right away. We meet with clients on a weekly or bi-weekly basis to create consistency, safety, and accountability.
Our clients are curious and ready to learn how to be with their feelings, even if they feel scared. They are ready to reflect on themselves and expand their ability to navigate the hard feelings.
Our clients have an understanding of what their patterns are, but are missing the body integration. They can see their behaviors and identify that something is wrong, but know they can't think their way out of it.
Our team is trained in a multitude of styles, but operates first and foremost from the somatic approach. Each facilitator not only teaches this practice, but lives it as well. We believe in walking the walk right alongside you. Click on a facilitator to learn more about their training, and style of facilitation.
"Stephanie is a powerful force that merges the gap between spirituality and science. She truly embodies balance, bringing together eastern and western practices. She inspires me to see duality through being a kind, gentle soul, with a fierce fiery force as well. Her combination of playfulness and depth invites laughter and tears into the space.
Over the past 2 years, she has helped me transform my relationship with myself. Together, I have acquired the tools to hold myself tenderly, and communicate with my inner child with deep empathy and compassion.
I truly love Stephanie, and am looking forward to getting to drop in with her each and every week."
"I started working with Kendra in June 2022 and overall my experience has been nothing but great! I have tried traditional therapy a few times, which has helped some. My issue is that I have a hard time understanding my emotions. Kendra has really helped me explore my emotions in a way that is easy for me to understand. She has a gift of making you feel like you are not alone in this journey of healing. It feels as though every session I complete with Kendra, I am left with more tools to help me get through, what used to be, emotionally confusing situations. The outcome of consistent sessions with Kendra has made me feel more confident when trying to understand my emotions as well as listening to my own body!"
"I don’t know where I would be without Stephanie. She continues to save my life in ways I never would have imagined possible. I am so happy to have found someone who just simply connects. Not only does she listen, but she’ll make you feel like you’re someone who is worth listening to, she will interact and ask the right questions. Stephanie, you’re the absolute best. Thank you forever and always for all that you do."
"Kendra is really such a talented practitioner. Her calm presence and demeanor alone are an inspiration and seem to really encapsulate what a regulated nervous system looks and feels like. You can tell she truly lives and leads by example. Additionally, she is extremely knowledgeable and intuitive. I learn a new regulating skill almost every session. Each session really sticks with me, so much so that I am able to integrate the teachings even months later. Thank you, Kendra! I feel lucky to know her."

Our sessions are facilitated online via Zoom, and are 50min.
You and your practitioner will work together to establish key themes you want to focus on, though we encourage you to bring your day-day experience in as well. We typically begin sessions with a somatic arriving activity. This is the first way we invite your body into the conversation.
Throughout the session, you will experience body-focused exercises and verbal reflections. You can expect to practice things like interoception (your internal sensing ability), co-regulation, small movements, and more. We always adjust to meet each client where they are emotionally, and facilitate each session with a trauma-informed lens.
Each individual brings their own unique challenges, so there is not a single time frame for full healing. We have folks who graduated from their work with us in 6 months, and some in 2 years. It depends on what we're working with, and at what stage you're in of your healing journey. We ask new incoming clients to commit to working with us once a week for the first 2 months so we can establish a safe container, and track your nervous system more successfully. This allows us to help you manage any activation that may arise from the beginning.
Our rate for working 1:1 with folks is $175/session. This rate is based off of our expertise, training, and energetic exchange. We do hold a few spots for sliding scale clients, as we know this is a financial investment.
We are not able to take insurance because Somatic Healing, while therapeutic, is not a therapy practice. Though all our facilitators are trained clinically, we do not offer clinical advice and do not diagnose in this practice. We use our training to make sure we are only working with folks who are ready for this kind of work, and if we feel a client is needing more structure due to their diagnostic background, we will refer out. We do work with clients who have had a diagnosed disorder, however, they come to us after having gained resources, tools, and capacity for discomfort.
Our goal when working with people individually is to teach them the skills to connect and navigate their lives on their own. We are here to reflect and support you in using the body-mind connection as one of the most effective and successful ways to get in touch with the unconscious mind.
