Linda Franke

I am the Senior Consultant for the Somatic Experiencing and intensive trauma team, offering guidance on a collaborative body psychotherapeutic approach for a wide array of physical, developmental, relational, shock trauma, and life transitions. I assist in developing a healing roadmap for interpersonal trauma stemming from childhood neglect and abuse, shame, and attachment wounds by integrating body/mind/spiritual healing techniques grounded in the body and honoring the individual’s healing journey. I have been a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and an Alexander Technique teacher since 2001. I am also a Certified Clinical Partner Specialist, APSATS-trained to treat partner betrayal trauma. I also lead a Somatic Experiencing/polyvagal-informed study group for CSATs, CPTTs, and APSATS. I am licensed as a Licensed Professional Counselor – Supervisor in the state of Virginia.
