somatic trauma therapy

This will be an 8-Week Movement and Embodiment Group that prioritizes the safety and well-being of individuals who are healing and integrating different aspects of their mental health. This group will be led by Kelsie Patton, LCSW. Kelsie creates spaces where participants can feel held, valued and in control of their own experience.

The group focuses on gentle and mindful movements, breathing techniques, and guided reflection to help individuals reconnect with their bodies, regulate their nervous system, and cultivate a sense of grounding and relaxation. It is designed to support mental health by promoting self-awareness, self-care, and the healing of emotional wounds.
