Create a Peaceful


Hello. I’m Jenny Winkel.

Somatic Support

In August of 2014 I received my master’s degree in somatic depth psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, California. Somatic depth psychology’s focus is on the way unconscious content manifest in the physical body. Almost without exception, a somatic imbalance has its roots in unresolved trauma.

My approach to somatic work is based on a profound respect for each individual’s unique and personal process. I implement deep listening skills to attune to your experience and create a grounded environment where your healing process can safely unfold.

In September of 2017 I completed a three year training program to become a Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner (SEP). In the years that followed I completed levels 1, 2 and 3 of the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM)* training. I am currently enrolled in The Haden Institute’s two year spiritual direction program and look forward to graduating in January 2025.

After working as a licensed massage therapist in Utah for thirteen years, I have recently transitioned away from doing traditional massage. However, I still hold a current license and now use it to offer Somatic Bodywork which has also been influenced by my training with Kathy Kain and Steve Tyrell.

Somatic Experiencing®, NARM, spiritual direction and Somatic Bodywork are not psychotherapy. I am not a licensed mental health care professional.
