Rebecca is an Occupational Therapist and a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner in-training. She is also a participant in the ReBloom Coach Training program, based in archetypal post-traumatic growth (facilitated by Rachael Maddox) and will be a certified ReBloom coach in 2022. Rebecca is passionate about how improving our access to play and joy through the 5 senses improves our nervous system regulation and creates a wide base of support for experiencing more difficult or uncomfortable sensations & emotions, especially when navigating deep work. Rebecca has a passion for facilitating a container where all sensations can be met with curiosity rather than judgement, and provides you with somatic tools and resources specifically tailored to your nervous system in order to experience more play, connection, stillness, and safety, and to be able to resiliently pendulate between various states of activation. Rebecca guides you in unearthing your own healing capacity: you know your nervous system better than anyone else, and together we can create the feelings of resilience and ease in more moments of your day. Rebecca particularly enjoys somatic work with those navigating life transitions or those interested in divesting from colonialism in daily life and systems we participate in.
At Studer Somatics, Rebecca strives to facilitate your improved connection with your full being: mind, body, and soul, in order to let your deepest truths shine. She strives to facilitate individuals’ resilience in navigating discomfort, overwhelm, and stress by giving you the tools you need in order to be with, shift, and/or move through a variety of sensations as they arise in your day-to-day life. In addition to managing difficult sensations, together we will work to create rituals and routines centered around play, stillness, and social connection to more easily create the conditions for you to access joy, pleasure, and peace (even for just a few moments) every day. These interventions all help create a sense of safety and trust in the nervous system, which helps create room for growth and presence in deep healing work. We may also work on noticing and shifting states of perfectionism, urgency, either/or thinking, power-over, and individualism (among other colonial values).
Rebecca is strongly influenced by our individual and collective connection with nature as a co-regulatory relationship. She views her somatic work through a witchy, occupational therapy, and anti-racist lens, and is heavily influenced by the work of Mary Oliver, Resmaa Menakem, Prentis Hemphill, Irene Morning, Rachael Maddox, Peter Levine, Clarissa Pinkola-Estés, Adrienne Marie Brown, and Bell Hooks. Rebecca enjoys new moon and full moon rituals as well as intentionally connecting to the earth & elements through her senses every day.
Rebecca is interested in the mind/body/soul connection in all areas of her life! She enjoys rock climbing, hiking, and stillness in nature in her free time, and is often found playing the piano to jam bands, doing intuitive movement practices, playing with her cats Franklin & Louise, reading, listening to podcasts and music, all while soaking up the delicious California sunshine. Rebecca is originally from Michigan, and loved living in the Pacific Northwest for several years before moving to the East Bay. Rebecca identifies as a pansexual femme and is interested in voices of Black intersectional feminism as a model for social justice and social change in our current capitalistic, colonial structures. Rebecca believes in the power of Pleasure Activism and Emergent Strategy (Adrienne Marie Brown) as guiding principles in her own life.
Rebecca is experienced in working with a variety of diagnoses/topics, and particularly loves working with folks interested in divesting from colonialism and/or who are moving through life transitions (a new medical diagnosis, birth or death of a loved one, moving, changing jobs, etc). Interventions may include:
We will tailor practices and rituals/routines to your particular nervous system, with the intent of creating a wide base of support for all emotional states, as well as to exist in improved states of safety, ease, social engagement, and play. Nervous system tools may include journaling, movement, intuitive dance, and/or mindfulness. You will also have text and email access to me (with 24-48 hour response time) during the coaching container.
