Yesterday something that I experienced as overwhelmingly traumatic happened to me. I started to freak out, and then I remembered sitting with you, and I remembered to feel every sensation in my body and to let it run it's course, as unbearable as it felt. I felt extreme nausea; I felt like my stomach was on fire inside; it felt like there was a ball of fire turning over and over and over. I felt a tightening of my throat; I observed that I wasn't breathing. When the sensations would come, I just let them, and they didn't overwhelm me! After years and years of panic attacks to the point of passing out, I was able to NOT freak out that I was freaking out that I was freaking out, as you say. :) For the first time, instead of feeling panic and thinking there's something wrong with me (and that I need to control it) I knew that this was something right with my nervous system and that I could let the process run it's course. I could feel the support that you've given me from here.
Typically after a terrifying experience, I wake up with that pinched nerve in my shoulder which leads to a three day and three night migraine. This is the first time that didn't happen.
This is nothing short of a miracle. I had have been telling everyone I have a real conversation with about you. I am so thankful, I don't even know what to say. But I know that you will understand, because I think you yourself know the gratitude that comes with realizing it's actually possible to exist in the world and NOT live life as a hyper-vigilant or traumatized person. I can feel that gratitude for the work coming through you when I'm with you.

Working with Brian is a great experience. I never get overwhelmed during sessions, and it is great working with someone who "gets it." You're in good hands.

Working with Brian has shifted alot of things in my life for the better. It's not easy or lazy work, but well worth it....especially if you've tried other types of therapy and haven't found real change I highly recommend Somatic Experiencing work for resolving past trauma. He's both a caring, talented and compassionate therapist and friend in the journey.

My initial consultation with Brian was a lot more than I expected. I came into the session feeling anxious and listless and left with a clear head and energized. Plus, Brian gave me a one-minute exercise that I use several times a day to get me out of my head and feeling present. I can't believe the effect just one session has had on me and, of course, am looking forward to many more. Feeling very fortunate to have found Brian.
I left feeling tired and unsure of my 'success' in the session. Woke up the next morning feeling like a new person. The black cloud was gone and I felt like I could tackle the world.
Coincidence? I think not.
Thank you so much for your love, generosity and effort you put into bettering our lives.

I've done countless forms of therapy and healing since the age of 10 having suffered from panic attacks starting that age. I felt like I knew many of my issues and past traumas but there was still a nagging pain and anxiety lingering inside me. I came randomly came across SOMA therapy and Brian on a google search. Hesitantly I called and took a chance on a first appointment. As soon as we dived into the session I knew this was exactly what I needed. He took me directly to the root of my pain without having to do countless hours of talking about my past or previous traumas. This is exactly what I was hoping for. The added bonus is that he is so intuitive, gentle and present. I can't ask for anything more. I'm committed this line of work for so many reasons now.

I have done a lot of inner work throughout my life. This session was a whole new experience. Ive always thought inner work was difficult and should be in depth. I learned that the body and the brain can heal on their own given the opportunity. I had such a great experience with Brian; from his caring eyes, and touch to the skills he possesses to walk you through your difficult times. I left feeling tired and unsure of my 'success' in the session. Woke up the next morning feeling like a new person. The black cloud was gone and I felt like I could tackle the world. Coincidence? I think not. Thank you so much for your love, generosity and effort you put into bettering our lives. MM
