 Couples Therapy | Somatic Therapy
Nervous System | Attachment | Trauma | Somatic | Neuroscience 

At Held Therapy we see individuals and couples either online or in person.
By healing the wounds of our past that are stored in our body, we have a different experience of our present both on our own and in our relationships.

Drawing from the latest science and teachings of the autonomic nervous system, attachment, and trauma therapy,
our approach uncovers how your history lives on in your body and guides you today in how you
experience yourself and those you are in relationship with.

Held Somatic Therapy

  • Heal from trauma responses that are still impacting you

  • Explore relationship dynamics within the safety of the therapeutic container.

About the work

It is now common to hear terms such as attachment style, trauma, nervous system, healing and regulation and this means we are becoming more psychologically and emotionally literate.
Through increasingly sophisticated technology and science, our knowledge expands, as does our understanding of how these terms connect to our physical, emotional, spiritual and mental experience of being in the world and most importantly, how to shift it.
At Held, we have combined this work and woven it together with held philosophies and purpose to work with you in a way that gives you the opportunity to change as a couple or individually.
