About Glyndie Nickerson

Glyndie Nickerson , M.A., Ph.D., SEP, practices Somatic Experiencing as an embodied approach to being alive in the moment.  She trusts the wisdom of your body to implicitly guide that process, and sees SE-informed embodiment and trauma resolution as an intrinsic part of the human awakening process.

She works with adults, adolescents, and children, and specializes in attachment, nervous system dysregulation due to chronic stress & trauma, chronic fatigue, syndromes, and supports creative and spiritual development. Supporting awareness of collective and personal trauma due to cultural, racial, political, sexual orientation, and gender difference is part of the healing process.

She is approved for personal sessions, case consultations, and group case consultations at all levels. As a clinical psychologist and bodyworker, her clinical background includes object relations, attachment theory, Jungian, and relational psychoanalysis. Her silent sitting practice anchors her work.

Glyndie is a graduate of Kathy Kain’s touch training, former faculty of the Barbara Brennan School of Healing, and a former massage therapist. Her practice is in Northampton, Massachusetts and she also spends time in Kenmare, Ireland.

Glyndie currently maintains a busy Skype consultation practice, and travels between Northampton, Massachusetts and Kenmare, Ireland.

She currently assists trainings with SE Faculty Berns Galloway, Linda Stelte, as well as with Lael Keen & Russell Jones. She also assists Kathy Kain’s Touch Trainings.

Her doctoral research involved a three-year project working with Tibetan expolitical prisoners in Northern India exploring autonomic regulation skills in combination with Tibetans’ own Buddhist cultural healing skills.
