Somatic Transformation

Somatic Transformation is a body-centered, relational methodology based in interpersonal neural psychology, ancient wisdom, and the somatic-emotional lived experience. 

Our organization is teaching an approach to therapy, informed by scientific research and phenomenological ways of knowing, for healing personal and generational trauma. 

“It is only through relationship that the unresolved suffering can be transformed into love and connection.” 
from Relational & Body-Centered Practices for Healing Trauma

We’re happy to announce two recently Certified Somatic Transformation Practitioners.

Carol Pendleton guides children, adolescents, couples, and families. She uses Somatic Transformation to keep her and her clients grounded and embodied while they explore their experiences or trauma.
She practices on Bainbridge Is., WA.

Annette Diehl applies Somatic Transformation and other techniques to work with individual adults who have experienced childhood relational or shock trauma.
She practices in Poulsbo, WA.
