Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP) is a body-oriented (somatic) talk therapy developed by Pat Ogden, PhD. SP is an eloquent therapy model that integrates leading-edge research on mind-body connection, Interpersonal Neurobiology, Attachment Theory, Structural Dissociation and current developments in trauma treatment.
I have completed the initial level of training in this model of Psychotherapy: Affect Dysregulation, Survival Defenses, and Traumatic Memory and am presently taking the second level of training: Emotional Processing, Meaning Making, and Attachment Repair. I’ve also studied with SP Faculty – Dr. Janina Fisher and completed her multi-year training: The Neurobiological Legacy of Trauma.
I integrate Sensorimotor Psychotherapy into a treatment plan whenever appropriate.
