About Lasell Jaretzki Bartlett
It's our nature to get along.
I work as a somatic psychotherapist, a therapeutic riding instructor, and a horsemanship coach. I have worked extensively with children, complex trauma, attachment disruptions, and with adults who seek to shift from patterns that are rooted in survival strategies from earlier life.
I volunteer frequently to assist Somatic Experiencing trainings here in the US and abroad, in alignment with my valuing the importance of this body- and physiology-based work, facilitating people as they change their nervous systems, renegotiate trauma, and move from stuckness into living a life more flowing with presence, confidence, and pleasure. It is not always an easy journey but it's doable.
I started this path over forty-five years ago as a meditator on a spiritual quest, in search of embodiment and nurturing relationships. I value connection, curiosity, creativity, and playfulness. My life – both personally and professionally – is guided by a mix of Eastern and Western principles. Activities I enjoy include hiking, kayaking, travel, music, writing, Aikido, and dance.
