What is Somatic Experiencing®?

Somatic Experiencing® is a body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma and other stress disorders. It is the life’s work of Dr. Peter A. Levine, resulting from his multidisciplinary study of stress physiology, psychology, ethology, biology, neuroscience, indigenous healing practices, and medical biophysics, together with over 45 years of successful clinical application. The SE approach releases traumatic shock, which is key to transforming PTSD and the wounds of emotional and early developmental attachment trauma.

SE™ Approach to Healing

SE™ offers a framework to assess where a person is “stuck” in the fight, flight or freeze responses, and provides clinical tools to resolve these fixated physiological states. It provides effective skills appropriate to a variety of healing professions including mental health, medicine, physical and occupational therapies, bodywork, addiction treatment, first response, education, and others.


With Stephanie Pappas, Somatic Experiencing® sessions are 1.5 hours. 2023 rates: $165.00 per session or 2023-24 special offer package of 3 sessions for $375.00

SE™ Sessions are conducted at my cozy bohemian style home office in Frenchtown, NJ (pet therapy available here), and also my professional office in Washington Crossing, PA. All offices have access to outdoor walking paths and the beautiful outdoors.

Sometimes healthy safe touch or yoga practices can be part of the session if you feel it will be helpful. I have 30 years of experience as a massage therapist and yoga teacher/trainer.
