About Taruno Steffensen

I began my SE studies with Peter Levine and senior international SE instructor Steven Hoskinson in 2006. The positive effects of SE were immediately apparent with my clients at The Meadows treatment center of Wickenburg, Arizona where I served on staff from 2006 through early 2011 working as an addictions counselor and a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner for 5 years. I specialized in trauma resolution with respect to sexual compulsivity, love addiction and addiction interaction, attachment, and family of origin issues. I am currently back at Gentle Path at The Meadows, which is their new treatment facility for sexual addiction for men only part-time working in the Trauma Resolution Services Department. Since 2006 I have been continuously involved in SE as a student or an assistant. I currently maintain a diversified private practice with clients in, Phoenix, AZ. As someone exploring the body-mind healing modality of Somatic Experiencing you are probably aware that this modality provides powerful tools for supporting proper nervous system functioning. This functioning is critical for helping to decrease stress and trauma and with it we can move toward greater ease and fulfillment in our lives. You can choose to do individual coaching through my comfortable, supportive atmosphere at my office mentioned above or work with me from the convenience of your home via telephone or Skype, nationally and internationally. In my work I take the role of an educator and sponsor. My task is to help my clients develop fluency in the mental and physical awareness skills exemplified by SE. These skills can then support the renegotiation of unresolved symptoms of trauma and stress. Since becoming an SEP, I've been humbled and amazed by the depth of awakening and clarity that often surfaces during sessions. I love being a part of a process that moves beyond cognitive understanding toward insight, wisdom and organic healing. Years of practicing and teaching mindfulness meditation have proved to be a powerful foundation for understanding the principles and practice of Somatic Experiencing. Without a doubt, this work has done more than inform and improve my practice as a helping professional. It has profoundly deepened my experience as a human being. I look forward to being a part of your healing process and hope to be of service as much as I can. You can learn more about my work and me by visiting my website:
