    About Nathallie Kiser-Negrón, LCSW-R, SEP

    As a Somatic Psychotherapist, I believe it is essential to work with the mind-body connection in the therapy process so that healing can happen not just by making sense of things in our mind but in our body, where memories are stored. As we meet, we’ll focus on both, alleviating your immediate sense of distress and increasing your sense of safety and well-being.

    Using a warm and engaging approach, I merge cutting-edge research in neuroscience with therapeutic techniques to help you develop your own set of tools and strategies that you can access anytime, anywhere, ultimately creating your own toolbox from within.

    My own personal and professional path has taught me to see life as a journey of growth and healing. A dancer at heart, I integrated my love of dance and movement with my strong desire to understand people and how they go about living. With this passion as my anchor, I went on to pursue post-graduate training in Gestalt Psychotherapy; a humanistic approach to therapy that places emphasis on gaining moment to moment awareness of our perceptions, feelings, and behavior for both the therapist and the client. I continued honing my skills and interests in body-oriented therapy with a certification in Somatic Experiencing, a body-based approach to healing trauma and PTSD via regulation of the nervous system. I am also trained in EMDR an evidenced-based approach to healing trauma that incorporates re-processing traumatic memories ultimately taking away its power to “hijack” your nervous system keeping you in the trauma reenactment loop.

    From specialized training in trauma resolution to exploring universal angst, I can help you make sense of your experience and find your way back to wholeness.

    As my client, you can expect a sensitive, interactive, and down-to-earth therapist with a sense of humor who is curious, flexible, and open to new levels of awareness for you and me.

    I enjoy working with people from all identities and backgrounds and hold an affinity toward issues of assimilation. When I’m not at work, I enjoy taking walks with my family and dog, gardening, visiting outdoor markets, and reading.
