Beth Cassel, MFT


I have always been a sensitive, and compassionate person.  It wasn’t until I had my first experience of therapy that I felt profoundly accepted for these qualities and actually saw them as an asset to who I am.  Therapy was an eye opening experience for me and held the promise of freedom from my limiting beliefs.

Years later I began working as a massage therapist. I became very inquisitive as to how people had chronic “holding” in their bodies and I wondered with them what was the source of these somatic conditions.

I was fascinated, and enrolled in the Somatic Psychology Program at Antioch University.  This was a very experiential program where we explored our own issues through a variety of somatic methods.  So I really got from the inside out how my body was a reservoir of kinesthetic memories, emotional experiences, and unhealthy family dynamics. 

My work at WOMAN Inc. with acutely traumatized clients spurred my pursuit of more in depth trauma training.  When I did the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and Somatic Experiencing trainings, I understood the relationship between one’s present difficulties and unprocessed traumatic experiences.  My passion for this work resides in the profound power, yet simplicity, of slowing things down, as if looking at a film frame by frame. Thus you can re-experience your traumatized self from a grounded, calm place.  And this is where the healing begins.
