Suzie Wolfer LCSW, SEP
Somatic Experiencing® found me in 2010 when I studied with Steve Hoskinson and completed the 3-year training, earning my SEP in June 2012. I started assisting at Somatic Experiencing® Therapy trainings on the West coast, and have enjoyed assisting since then.
I’ve been supporting clients for over 30 years now. And have found Somatic Experiencing® to be the most effective, gentle and enjoyable way to help clients achieve lasting results: relief from anxiety, depression, stress and PTSD.
Perhaps one of the unique aspects of Somatic Experiencing® therapy is what we call co-regulation. My accompanying you, helps you experience Ease with Presence with challenges and successes. And instead of taking a toll on me, I feel well-being in supporting you. We both enjoy our work together. Your progress, success and well-being makes you feel better. And in the experience of getting to work with you, I’m happily doing my life’s work. Most days, I’m more energized and inspired in my “job” at the end of the day, than when I started.
After being a therapist for so many years, it seems like most people come in with a simple problem: their body and nervous system gets a little stuck in fight, flight or freeze patterns, or a combination of those patterns.
And I know just how to help. I know you have resources inside you that want to help you feel more ease, more aliveness, more peace. And I know how to help at a pace that works for you.
I enjoy supporting clients to recover from anxiety and depression, PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), stress in their relationships, work and emotional lives. I’ve worked with Veterans, people with addiction problems, DID, physical and sexual abuse . . . All in the services of resilience and wellness.
It’s my honor and delight to get to support you to “grow up and turn out to be who you really are” said e. e. cummings.
For Somatic Experiencing® students, I offer both person sessions and case consults at the Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced. I also offer small group case consults.
After doing Somatic Experiencing® for the last 10 years, isn’t just a collection of tools, it’s an application of Stephen Porges “Poly Vagal Theory” . . . a way live with rhythm, presence in Flow, and access Flight, Fight and Freeze when needed. . . And enjoy the journey.
