Integrative and Somatic



The body-mind and brain are complex and interconnected systems. Integration is the linkage of differentiated parts of a system and the fundamental mechanism of health and wellbeing. "Health emerges with integration...positive emotion can be seen as a shift that enhances integration and promotes a sense of vitality, expanding our sense of connection to ourselves and to others."(Siegel) Our goal as clinicians is to provide you with tools and experiences to create a more integrated life of internal and interpersonal health and wellbeing.


Somatic refers to the body. The brain, what we commonly think of as the center of thought, is interconnected with the whole of the body through the peripheral nervous system and signals from the body's physiological processes. When we are overwhelmed by an experience, without the capacity to fully release sensations and emotions that accompany the traumatic event, the undigested experience is stored on a cellular level. Instead of discharging the energies of the overwhelming experience through our bodies we tense up, inhibit, and repress, contributing to symptoms such as panic, anxiety, depression, and PTSD. As Somatic clinicians we support the safe release and integration of overwhelm and trauma, along with self agency and playful discovery.


We are a diverse group of licensed and pre-licensed Integrative and Somatic Psychotherapist, united in our passion to provide a supportive, safe, and nonjudgmental therapeutic relationship to assist you in moving toward your stated goals of emotional, physical, and relational health. We welcome and value diversity, including all sexualities, genders, body sizes, abilities, races, and viewpoints. To put it simply, Therapy4u is here to support you in being your best self.

"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
 you touch everything.
