About Laurie A. Dawson
Within each person lies the potential for healing. My 20-year career in hands-on therapy is supported by my practice of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST), Somatic Experiencing (SEP), and Manual Therapy (LMT). I support the body’s own capacity for healing and repair through touch, deep listening, therapeutic dialoging and resonance. Clients learn to build the capacity to hold and process difficult experiences with curiosity, kindness and embodied awareness.
My practice invites exploration into the body where unmetabolized life experiences/trauma can reside and where symptoms in the physical, emotional or psycho-spiritual systems can develop. I help clients repair and connect with their whole being and to build capacity for resilience, attachment and connection to their body.
Some of the areas of trauma healing include: physical and emotional pain and syndromes, emotional/sexual/physical abuse, medical issues, birth traumas, and pregnancy support. I also see clients with medical conditions, chronic pain syndromes, and injuries to tissues, bones, muscles, organs and their rehabilitation, recovery from surgery, traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries. I can work collaboratively with psychotherapists, medical doctors and other healthcare professionals on treatment plans and goals.
Sessions give the opportunity for the whole person to function optimally - with clear thinking, emotional expression and the ability to move the body in a new way; changing the relationship to pain and conditions. There is connection to balance and the body’s ability to self-repair; restoring, maintaining and enhancing health.
