Somatic Experiencing for Chiropractic Success and Vitality

Through my own unique lens and personal/professional experiences as a chiropractor of 18 years, I currently offer Somatic Experiencing sessions to assist other chiropractors as they navigate challenges that keep them from experiencing the type of Success and Vitality that they had imagined for themselves upon deciding to become DC’s.

Through Somatic Experiencing sessions, we can address the barriers to Success and Vitality that are carried forward from our childhood, infancy and pre-natal selves:

Self-worth; Entrepreneurship; Associateship; Money;

Burnout; Boundaries; Work/Life Balance; more…

Somatic Experiencing sessions can be held online over Zoom. Or, when possible, sessions can be held in-person at either my Minnesota or California location.


I am available to meet in person, over the phone or via Zoom to discuss patient cases in which trauma history is suspected or known. Some examples of consultation topics might be: chronic or “fixed” health syndromes; chronic or “fixed” movement patterns; physical symptoms that are not resolving as expected with treatment; persistent flare-up of symptoms; large emotional reactions to treatments; aversion to hands-on treatments; high numbers of repeated or similar types of accidents/injuries.


I am available to provide primary or supplemental care for cases in which trauma history is suspected or known. For referrals from a chiropractor, any treatment I offer would be supplemental and supportive of the chiropractor’s current treatment plan and could include Somatic Experiencing, acupuncture and/or trauma-sensitive yoga.


I am available for on-site trainings for clinic staff on the topics of nervous system dysregulation and trauma and trauma-sensitive treatment techniques. These trainings can be very helpful in bringing all the members of your clinic team (including care providers, front desk staff, billing staff) up to a base-level of trauma-sensitivity.

I am also available for general clinic assessment in determining trauma-sensitive protocols to add to your current clinic protocols. This could include assessment of: front desk area, waiting area, healing spaces, furnishings, patient flow, scheduling practices.
