Consulting for Somatic Therapists:

Within the dyadic somatic encounter, liberal manifestations of intimacy can recreate white/western universalisms that render the very work of somatic therapy complicit in the reproduction of social injustices, such as racial and intergenerational trauma.  Consulting supports somatic awareness of the content and magnitude of the historic fields – and the fraught relationships between/among them – that relationally bind the client-practitioner/therapist encounter and thus impact what’s possible in therapy and in the world at large.
