About Valerie Candela Brower

After many years of training and experience, I developed a unique treatment approach using a combination of highly effective, research supported methods of therapy, such as psychotherapy, Somatic Experiencing, Somatic Experiencing touch, grief and loss counseling, spirituality and intuitive resources. This blended approach is gentle, healing and restorative. Sessions are dynamic and treatment frequency is based on the individual's preference. Sessions often bring immediate relief.  


In session, we spend just enough time on the "story" and focus more on how the body responds.  Somatic work is very different than traditional talk therapy.  There is no need to revisit painful experiences; the focus of treatment is to regulate the system and resource the body.  This process helps the person to feel better, heal and experience "trauma" resolution.  Our primary focus is to invite relief by calming (regulating) the system and by "creating" energetic space so that the body can do what it is designed to do, heal.  When the nervous system is less stressed (physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually) and more regulated, it has greater capacity to function, heal and thrive.




For those professionals in a Somatic Experiencing training, I am an approved provider for individual sessions, for students at all levels.   I am approved to provide consultation sessions for Beginning year students.  I very much enjoy working with SE students as they learn and discover the gentle yet powerful healing power of SE.  It is personally fulfilling to witness their experience and know that, in turn, they will bring SE to their clients in the future.
