Karen Rachels, LMFT | Psychotherapy Consultation & Training


As Somatic Attachment Therapy is experientially-based, learning must be rooted in both didactic material and extensive practice.

I have ongoing consultation groups focused on somatic attachment work. Each group has five members who have opportunities to discuss clients through this lens. Members of each group have some grounding in somatic work and utilize the concepts of nervous system regulation, resourcing and attachment theory in their work.

I also facilitate practice groups in the San Francisco Bay Area where we practice Somatic Attachment Therapy, a flexible somatically-focused method that integrates attachment, regulation, somatic skills and basic trauma completion.
