Hi, I'm Nico.

I value embodied presence, curiosity, and the story our bodies communicate if we attune to them.

I’ve been a licensed bodyworker and massage therapist since 2010 and have become increasingly curious about ways to be with others that allow for growth and nourishment. My own curiosity journey has led me to the therapeutic modality of Somatic Experiencing. I've chosen to be here in this space because connection is healing and many of us aren’t taught the skills to understand our own impulses and recognize our relationship patterns.

What is Somatic Experiencing?

Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a body-oriented therapeutic modality for healing trauma. The SE approach allows the practitioner and recipient to cultivate a toolset to identify and resolve "stuck" states, such as fight, flight, or freeze.

 

Using principles of Somatic Experiencing we’ll connect, ground, and get curious about your body’s narrative.

Through this process, your nervous system will deepen its resilience and capacity for regulation. In these expansive states, your connection to self and others can deepen and grow. Together we’ll explore tools for freeing up stress and identify resources for creating lasting changes. Learn more about Somatic Experiencing
