Maggie Truelove, SEP, CMT

Hello! I see adult clients in SE Portland for body-based healing and coaching through leading modalities in the fields of embodiment, trauma and resiliency: Organic Intelligence and Somatic Experiencing. This work is of tremendous support in returning to a state of wellbeing, peace and aliveness.

My Approach

The folks I see come from a variety of backgrounds, some who have experienced trauma, including abuse and neglect, and many who suffer from symptoms related to our often isolating modern culture, including chronic stress, depression and anxiety. In a session together we will talk, explore imagery, feelings and sensations, and at times incorporate gentle movement. This approach works to gradually increase one's capacity to process energy in the nervous system, including our responses to life experiences and the left over energy from those experiences in the past that were too overwhelming. This approach also works with one's access to and ability to enjoy life and experience pleasure as a cornerstone of health and embodiment!

My Background

I am certified through the Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute as an SEP and trained with Steve Hoskinson, founder of Organic Intelligence. I am an OI Mentor and Coordinator for the Human Empowerment and Resiliency Training (HEART), which involves mentoring students through the personal and professional process of learning and integrating OI's principles. My professional background is in Bodywork and Massage Therapy (CA cert. #58496). Since 2008 I have practiced Deep Tissue Therapy, Shiatsu, Acupressure and Medical Qigong. I am in ministerial training in the Lohan Order of Buddhism with my teacher Fa Jun Shakya. My personal interests include the study and practice of feminism, body trust, body and weight neutrality, deep ecology, decolonization and indigenous perspectives, Chinese and Indo-Tibetan Buddhism, art and the creative process, social justice, Nonviolent Communication, conscious partnership, and a love of music. I identify as queer and see many LGBTQ+ clients.
