Somatic Psychotherapy for Trauma and Anxiety
ARIANNE MACBEAN, AMFT
Healing throughout the body
I support adults and couples process emotional discomfort so they can live more compassionately.
If you are here, you’re searching for a way out of pain. Emotional hurt can stem from past trauma and can affect the way you experience life and your own body. Perhaps you’ve become overcome with anxiety, rumination, or sleep disturbances. Perhaps your relationships feel imbalanced or fraught with tension. Perhaps a difficult experience has impacted your health and you suffer from chronic pain or persistent illnesses. You want to feel free, less burdened by fear or worry. You are ready to embark on your healing journey.
Therapy is the place to do this work. Together, we can gently uncover the roots of your unease, identify triggers, and establish productive coping mechanisms. Along the way, we can build your self-worth and agency to tap into your innate vitality and natural wellbeing. These are ways to help you wake up feeling refreshed, move through your day with energy, and talk with your loved ones with ease.
My intention when working in therapy is to provide exemplary empathic attunement and real, felt, relational alignment. I naturally acknowledge and return to feelings, memories, and dreams as messages worthy of attention. I bring my passion for somatic healing techniques to my practice to support talk-therapy. Somatic psychotherapy activates the body in the here and now to understand and relieve pain. Therapy with me is guided by the connection between mind, body, and spirit as a path towards becoming closer to who you truly are.
Moving out of pain occurs with tender curiosity and relational care. I am here to provide that care. Please reach out. I would love to work with you.

What do you like about being a therapist?
I believe the client/therapist relationship is very special. I am humbled by the “Aha!” moments of self discovery that I witness in my work, and am in awe of my clients’ capacity to overcome adversity, grow, and thrive. Being a partner in my clients’ journey of healing and self knowledge is a gift. I cherish and hold in tender care the trust given to me while we navigate the unknown and move into clarity, confidence, and compassion.
