About Joan Luly, MT, CST, SEP

My unique approach combines Somatic Experiencing® (SE™) with my expertise in hands-on bodywork and energy healing, psychodynamics, spiritual psychology, CranioSacral, and the innate wisdom of spiritual traditions. While we work to resolve the issues you bring into your sessions, I will help you restore inner balance, and find resilience and empowerment.

You may be interested in my work for dealing with chronic pain, chronic diseases, syndromes, migraines, depression, or trauma and PTSD resulting from accidents, medical procedures, sexual or physical assault, emotional abuse, neglect, war, natural disasters, loss, birth trauma, or the corrosive stressors of ongoing fear and conflict. And, I work with anyone interested in individual growth and self-realization. Since trauma can be a major hindrance on the path of self-realization the two approaches tend to go hand-in-hand.

Please call me to assess if I'm the right person to help you on your journey. 




As a Case Consult Provider I offer sessions and consultation to Therapists, Psychologists and Bodyworkers in the SE™ Professional Training as part of their process towards becoming a Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner.

Levine, PhD: Body Reading and Developmental Trauma (2015), Aggression, Depression, Triumph and Breath (2014), Healing the Wounds of War (2014), Working With Syndromes (2013), Through The Eye Of The Needle (2010), Children and Trauma (2006).




I completed the following specialized training: NeuroAffective Touch™ Fundamentals Training (2017) with Aline LaPierre, PsyD; Touch Skills Training for Trauma Therapists (Touch Training, 2011) with Kathy Kain, MA, SEP; Somatic Resilience and Regulation: Early Trauma (2014) with Kathy Kain, MA, SEP & Stephen Terrell, PsyD, SEP; From Conception to the Early Infancy, an Intimate Immersion into the world of a Prenate and Newborn (2012) with Ariel Giarretto MS, LMFT, SEP.




“Joan is an exceptional SE™ Practitioner. She masterfully combines a precise scientific understanding of how to re-balance the nervous system through the integration of touch and spiritual exploration. Joan is wise and perceptive, and has had many decades of success in healing complex trauma.”
