Interview with Michelle Chalfant and The Adult Chair:
Patti Elledge has specialized in therapeutic application of neuroscience for more than 40 years. She has a broad clinical background in developmental traumas and worked directly with babies, children and families for 25 years prior to her Somatic Experiencing training in the late 90s. She specializes in trauma healing techniques for interpersonal, social/emotional, language/cognition and sensory processing disruptions and Early Attachment Wounds.  Her blending of a variety of somatic and body-mind techniques helps to treat and resolve over-coupled elements of the fight-flight-freeze that become so seemingly intractable with the essence of loving/bonding and “belonging.” By accessing all parts of the nervous system and moving out of stuck, frozen or fear based relational patterns we can return to healthy functioning. This return to regulation leads us to greater sense of self, ease in relating to others, creativity, expression in the world and eventually toward our own spiritual natures. Patti has studied directly with Drs. Peter Levine, Diane Poole Heller and Raja Selvam as well as many other renowned teachers, and serves as an approved consultant for the SE training requirements. She holds Trauma Informed Touch Certification from Kathy Kain and is delighted to share her wisdom as a Faculty member for Diane Poole Heller’s pioneering work, Dynamic Attachment Re-Patterning Experience.
