About Elizabeth Anne Nielsen

I am a California Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (since 2000) a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (2003) and Sr. SE assistant (assisting since 2001), certified to provide sessions and consultations for SE students through the advanced level and also supervise MFT interns. With offices in both San Rafael and San Francisco, I work with adults, couples, and youth. I provide consultation on bringing SE to underserved populations and have consulted on projects on Tamil Nadu, India and Kigali, Africa. I was also a consultant for the Faithful Fools project in San Francisco, CA which provides SE support to the homeless. Since the Tsunami in 2004, I have helped organize teams of SEP’s from around the world that have traveled to Tamil Nadu, India to treat Tsunami survivors, oppressed women (and some men) and to teach local NGO staff how to aid those with traumatic stress. In 2008 I founded a U.S. based nonprofit, Lotus Circle International (LCI), which aids underserved populations worldwide. LCI’s continued work includes a women’s empowerment program in South India. My work is influenced by years of personal healing, yoga and mindfulness practices, as well as years of assisting with various Somatic Experiencing teachers including Steven Hoskinson's Organic Intelligence approach (13 years) and Raja Selvam's ISP method (in Sri Lanka). I also received advanced training with Kathy Kain in Touch For Psychotherapists.
My international work and family frequently bring me to Asia. I am available for sessions, workshops and consultations in Singapore, Cambodia, Thailand and India Please email me for availability and scheduling. Main number: USA 415-359-5597  Email: Skype address: beth.nielsen1
