About Cathy Latner, M.Ed, LICSW, SEP
I have been a psychotherapist for over twenty-five years, with experience in private practice, community mental health and day-treatment hospital settings. My study of alternative healing modalities spans three decades, and includes training in shamanism, hypnosis, gestalt therapy, meditation, mind/body practices, EMDR, EFT, Reiki III, Matrix Energetics, Theta Healing, Reconnective Healing, and Psych-K. In 2000, I graduated from the Barbara Brennan School of Healing, an intensive, 4-year training in energy healing and spiritual development and inquiry. Additionally, I am a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP), helping all aspects of the individual to recover from stress and trauma. My training in early attachment and development further assists the individual bring healing to internal and interpersonal relational issues. Earlier, I worked as a Special Educatioin teacher for nine years in self-contained schools for students ages 14-20 with academic, behavioral and emotional challenges.
As a psychotherapist and energy healing practitioner, I love to bring together healing for the body, the emotions, the mind and the Soul. By offering a safe, compassionate setting and individualized treatment for the unique needs of each client, I help facilitate the client's empowerment and intrinsic resiliency, leading to a life more fully lived and more fully enjoyed. Additionally, I offer touch work as a Bodywork and Somatic Education Practitioner, supporting the body's reparative process; and energy healing, facilitating the body, mind, emotions and soul in their multi-dimensional, transpersonal healing and growth.
I assist all levels of SE trainings in the USA and Australia, along with Diane Poole Heller's DARe Attachment Trainings in the USA. I am an approved SE Personal Session Provider for Beginning, Intermediate & Advanced Levels and an approved provider for Beginning Individual Case Consults. I am now primarily based out of Lexington, MA (a suburb of Boston), with a secondary base in Austin, TX.
I look forward to meeting you.
