Tiffany is a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner which is a body-based trauma resolution therapy that heals patterns of tension and disconnection by restoring healthy nervous system regulation. She has studied Indo-Tibetan science practices and Buddhist Psychology extensively, having completed a 4-year training through the Nalanda Institute as well as a 2-year training in Contemplative Studies. Tiffany believes that by reconnecting with the intelligence of the body one is able to restore the natural wisdom we carry to move toward healing and wholeness
Tiffany creates a nurturing and grounded space where she encourages her clients to approach healing with a deep curiosity. She hopes to explore the full range of what it means to be human, addressing not only our pain and wounds, but also developing a greater embodiment of joy, enthusiasm, and satisfaction
Tiffany currently resides in Brooklyn, New York where she teaches yoga and has a private somatic therapy practice. She is a seasoned yoga and meditation instructor, working stateside and abroad, and facilitates yearly teacher training programs integrating yogic philosophy and trauma literacy

What is Somatic Therapy?
Somatic Therapy is a bottom-up approach to trauma resolution. Traditional psychotherapy works with the narrative of our experience – talking through events as a way to release their activation or charge. Somatic Experiencing® (SE) deals with what I call the story beneath the story. What is under that narration is an epic dialogue of behaviors, impulses, sensations, images, and emotions that if slowed down and attuned to tell their own story about where trauma lives and how to heal it
Ways To Work With Me
You will learn tools + practices for greater nervous system understanding and regulation
You will repair + integrate past experience by developing a felt sense of safety in the body that allows for the reemergence of agency + choice
You will move beyond stuckness and into vitality + flow. As the body and mind become coherent (meaning they’re on the same page) you will expand into new dimensions of possibility and self
New Moon Temple
Held monthly at Humming Puppy in Manhattan + Maha Rose in Brooklyn
This somatic circle works with the potent energy of the new moon, offering an auspicious portal for planting new seeds
Expect to engage with yourself on many levels through chanting, breath work, a guided somatic practice, and journaling
Full Moon Temple
Held monthly at Maha Rose in Brooklyn
This somatic circle works with the full moon, which symbolizes a completed cycle and reminds us to release what no longer serves our highest self and good
Breathwork practices support the release of stuck patterns within our systems. Sound and somatic movement call in healing frequencies and connect us to our own innate intelligence. We will close with journaling and a releasing ritual to make space for clarity and inspired action
“You are the medicine”
Healing comes in many forms and benefits from many avenues of support. The fragmentation of our culture + world is a result of a conditioning away from connection. We are moving away from our humanness and the rhythms and cycles that keep us balanced.
Plant medicine can help bring us back.
Back into connection with one another, with our own bodies, and with the earth (the greater “body”).
It increases neuroplasticity + neurogenesis which is linked to mood, optimism, and a rewiring of the brain. So more parts of ourselves are coming online and communicating.
What this looks and feels like is possibility, playful curiosity, and the sense of coming home to one’s authenticity.
Through the stellar team at Mycology Psychology, I offer somatic integration sessions to those interested in exploring this medicine.
I look forward to hearing from you!
