Vanessa Tate


I am a LMFT with specific training in relationships of all types. I received my education from CIIS in San Francisco with specific training in Somatic Psychotherapy. I value the importance of the physical, energetic body and connection to emotions, behaviors, and relationship to self and others.

My Approach

Life is about evolving out of dissatisfying "ways of being" and adapting to different behaviors and postures which feel better. Often times, these maladaptive ways of being got wired internally within our first five years of life. With my intuitive touch and guidance and your increased mindfulness and self awareness, including attention to the body, choices appear when in the past we might have felt a victim to life, our emotions, and/or relationships. Using a holistic, largely Somatic and intuitive approach, considering various dimensions of a person, helps us better understand our relationship to ourselves, emotions, our environment our path thus far, and where we can possibly go from there.

My Background

Because we are all unique, my Somatic Psychotherapy is tailored to the individual and I meet the client where s/he is. My training has focused on Somatic (Body-Oriented) Psychotherapy and I am influenced by my 20+ years as a Yoga Instructor and Practitioner, iRest® Yoga Nidra, Mindfulness practices, Laws of Attraction, Somatic Experiencing with Kathy Kain and Stephen J. Terrell, Hakomi, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Strength Based Therapy, Humanistic Psychology, Expressive Arts, Gestalt, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
