What is Somatic Experiencing? 

Somatic Experiencing, developed by Peter Levine, is a gentle therapy that lends support to both body and mind. It focuses on how one is feeling in the present moment to relieve the physiological, emotional and physical effects of post traumatic stress disorder and other stress and trauma-related health problems.

Rachelle Mechenbier is an amazing therapist! She is well-trained in a wide variety of therapeutic methods. She is particularly skilled in somatic experiencing, and has helped me work out my feelings of anxiety by guiding me using the somatic experiencing therapy. From my first session with Rachelle, I felt a connection. She is a very warm and caring person, and I trust her implicitly. I especially appreciate that she is a careful and focused listener, and that she responds to my issues as they come up with insightful comments, helpful explanations, and even diagrams, all of which help me understand the possible basis for my feelings while providing me with new ways to look at my situation. I would recommend her without hesitation. –M
