Somatic Experiencing Practitioner
Noah holds a Master of Arts in Psychology from Antioch University and a Master of Fine Arts from University of Southern California, and is currently an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist with a focus on healing developmental trauma. Among various other trauma modalities, Noah is trained in the Trauma Resiliency Model and the three-year Somatic Experiencing training based on Peter Levine’s work.
Noah’s approach is highly empathic and exceedingly trauma-informed. With a background rooted in both creativity and psychology, his practice is grounded in intuition, somatic resonance, collaboration, and co-created improvisation and play. Noah’s professional experience includes work with traumatic grief, complex and “simple” trauma, anxiety, depression, relational difficulties, and syndromal patterns. He is also Spanish-fluent and has experience working with immigration trauma and distress.
Noah is passionate about healing and cares deeply for the people he works with. Noah believes that clients coming into treatment at Reconnect have the opportunity of a lifetime to profoundly shift how they experience the world. Learned helplessness, hypervigilance, and chronic dissociation are just a few of the many challenges that go hand-in-hand with complex trauma and attachment wounding; however, beyond these limitations an empowered, connected, and gratifying life awaits.
Noah is RITTM certified.
