About Andrea Gage
I have recently moved from the Bay Area Peninsula and am now in the Central Valley of California. I currently offer Skype/Zoom sessions and in person sessions for locals. I have been a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner since 2003 having come from 10 years as a Self Defense instructor with Impact Bay Area (previously BAMM). Through that work, I have a great interest in working with Boundaries and have taught many workshops on the subject as well as presenting at the 1st SE Conference in Oakland. I have studied to be a Doula. Having been a 911 dispatcher, I enjoy supporting first responders in the important work they do. I also love working with HSPs and integrating their experiences.
I have had the pleasure of coordinating and assisting SE trainings for many years for many of the instructors. I take the opportunity to study with Peter Levine when he is in the country. I also have had the honor to be part of one of the India Tsunami Trauma teams. I am currently on the Community Council for Organic Intelligence, the work of Steve Hoskinson and am a lead assistant in his HEART Trainings.
I'm approved to offer personal session and consults for all levels of SE Students. Helping to guide and support you in your development as an SE practitioner.
I enjoy helping bring the mind and body together to restore the joy life has to offer in a gentle and safe way. Please give me a call to see if I'm a right match for you.
