The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched,

they must be felt with the heart.

Somatic Experiencing®

Somatic Experiencing® is a whole body approach to addressing trauma, developed by Peter Levine, and once integrated can open pathways for healing and increased resilience.

 

The practitioner helps to guide a person through experiences that engage the body and mind with subtle awareness of sensations, images, emotion and meaning. Moving gently between perception of tension and openness allows resourcing and balance to occur within the nervous system and body. This begins to address the root causes of symptoms and allows the mind and body to relate in a new and more empowering manner. The gentle process helps to create increased tolerance and willingness to explore difficult sensations and emotions from past traumatic experiences. The result is often a sense of ease and empowerment with a new understanding or narrative related to the past experiences.

Christine Milovani, LCSW has completed three years of training with Somatic Experiencing Training Institute (200+ hours) to become a Provisional Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (PSEP). The final SEP certifcation will be awarded in 2021 when COVID precautions are lifted and the final in person training can be completed.

 

Christine uses Somatic Experiencing® in all four areas of Integrative Somatic sessions: Psychotherapy, Embodied Healing (table work), Coaching & Consultation, and Educational groups and classes. 

 

Please note that clinical assessment, diagnosis and interventions are only offered within psychotherapy sessions, and only offered for Wisconsin residents due to state licensure.
