About Dea Parsanishi (previously Hamanishi)

I live and work on the west coast of Vancouver Island where, for the mre than 10 years, I have been in private practice as a trauma therapist. Prior to that, I worked on the front lines with traumatized children, youth and adults. Currently a large portion of my clinical work is with early developmental trauma and attachment. As well as teaching SE®, I work as a counsellor educator with the University of Victoria. I have been blessed to work in a number of First Nations communities and was taught how communities survive multi-generational trauma, the importance of spirituality in healing, and the overlap between SE® and some traditional ways of healing. This experience informs and affects my work with both First Nations and non-First Nations people. I work from a body-oriented perspective, incorporating SE®, movement, touch and touch awareness in my practice. I am available for telephone consults and personal sessions
