Jen Worth founded Somatic Roots LLC in Bend, OR with the intention of helping people reduce stress so that life is more enjoyable and manageable. Jen is a Somatic Practitioner and nervous system counselor offering body-based therapies including Somatic Experiencing® and Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) for people whose lives have been impacted by difficult situations, traumatic stress or chronic illness. Somatic practices support healing and resilience in the body, providing ease and regulation in the nervous system, a sense of calm and safety, and feeling connected to one’s own body.
Somatic Experiencing® is a highly effective psychobiological approach to the prevention and resolution of trauma and stress related conditions. SE™ naturally builds greater inner resiliency, self-regulation, and wellness. This modality was developed by Dr. Peter A. Levine, resulting from his multidisciplinary study of stress physiology, psychology, ethology, biology, neuroscience, indigenous healing practices, and medical biophysics, together with over 45 years of successful clinical application. The SE approach releases traumatic shock, which is key to transforming PTSD and the wounds of emotional and early developmental attachment trauma.
Developed at the Center for Trauma and Embodiment at Justice Resource Institute, Trauma Sensitive Trauma Center Yoga (TCTSY) is an empirically validated, adjunct clinical treatment for complex trauma or chronic, treatment resistant Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The TCTSY methodology is based on components of the hatha style of yoga and has foundations in Trauma Theory, Attachment Theory, and Neuroscience.
Jen approaches her work with compassion, curiosity and respect for the innate healer in each of us. She meets each client where they are at to support and expand their resiliency and well-being.
Jen has a diverse background in bodywork, yoga, animal behavior, and teaching. She has been a Licensed Massage Therapist (#23738) and instructor in private practice for more than a decade, helping clients with trauma recovery, injury rehabilitation and chronic pain relief.
