Hi, I’m Annie, and I’m a politicized somatics practitioner. I help clients get unstuck.

I do this by helping clients metabolize trauma and experience moments of liberation from internalized oppression and trauma. I work with clients experiencing anxiety, depression, chronic illness, ADHD, autism, racial trauma, life transitions, career transitions, feelings of stuckness, school bullying, time management struggles, overwhelm, self-esteem struggles, career transitions, family issues, and relationship issues. The communities I center include:

-BIPOC children of immigrants, refugees, and undocumented people
-BIPOC people
-neurodivergent people
-disabled people
-queer people

I accompany clients as they reconnect with their aliveness. I help them return to their bodies following the natural disintegration of their wholeness following surviving intergenerational and historical trauma. Clients often enter our work together after numbing themselves out, dissociating, and/or ignoring emotions to survive. I follow my clients’ lead and pace. I ensure they are the ones making decisions about what we work on and how we work on it. I strongly believe that young people are autonomous, decision makers and value following their leads.

Clients often enter our work together with a singular goal in mind and come away with a more expansive understanding of themselves, who they want to become, how to embody this transformation. If you want to know more about me, how I work, my believes, or my practice philosophies/values, please check out my website (https://baobaosomatics.com/about).
