Healing is a process of embodiment

Hello!

I’m Ana Liz Ceregatti, and I’m glad you’re here.

 

As a Somatic Therapist and Educator and Expressive Arts Therapy Practitioner, I specialize in supporting folks who identify as women in accessing healing and well-being through creative embodiment.

This means that we enter our bodies with curiosity to understand what is happening on physical, emotional, and mental levels, so that we can identify and examine patterns of feeling and behavior and shift them into life-generating resources.

To do this, I weave together modalities such as Somatic Movement/Dance, Expressive Arts, Somatic Meditation and Mindfulness, Somatic Parts Work (IFS-informed), ritual, and the power of attuned relationship and the shared collective experience.

My approach to healing and growth centers on compassionately uncovering and tending to your multiple parts/aspects with curiosity and understanding, in creative ways.

 

This creates space for you to enjoy your process.

 

We reconnect to the core of who you are and shift maladaptive mechanisms - both physical and mental - into life-generating resources for integration and growth in daily life.

TOGETHER, WE CAN WORK ON

Healing the Mother Wound and Inner Child

Healing old wounds and harmonizing your multiple parts, so you can feel aligned and in charge of your own life

Finding Your Voice and Unique Gifts

Aligning your inner experience with outward expression, unleashing and emboldening your voice, and honing your unique creative gifts

Body Acceptance and Love

Nurturing an intimate and loving relationship with your body, image, and Self - including the challenging aspects

Intuition and Spirituality

Drawing resources from intuition, ancestrality, and spirituality

Self-Esteem, Self-Worth, Self-Efficacy

Nourishing yourself to cultivate a positive self-concept, including self-worth, self-esteem, and self-efficacy

Lifestyle and Habit Changes

Creating lifestyle and habit changes to release old patterns and build an authentic and meaningful way of living

My primary role is to listen deeply and engage not only with your words, but with the subtleties of your body language and unconscious cues, offering you ways to explore and process what emerges.

I guide you to gain awareness of aspects of your experience that hold profound meaning but may otherwise go unnoticed, supporting you in gaining self-knowledge and autonomy, and activating your capacity to heal and expand your life.

I am proud of being part of the Latina diaspora in Los Angeles, and my practice is inclusive of all folks who identify as women, of all cultural and ethnic backgrounds and ages.
 

I am passionate about empowering a refreshed feminine notion in a culture driven by oppressive gender norms, greed, and urgency.

In both my private practice and group sessions, I encourage clients to expand their understanding, exchange ideas, and learn how to take embodied action toward a fuller and more meaningful life - personally, interpersonally, politically, and ecologically. 

 

I have extensive training in the Tamalpa Life/Art Process®, having worked closely with co-founding director Daria Halprin at Esalen Institute. Currently, I am developing community-based work with women who, like myself, have faced breast cancer, as my final step towards certification in the method.

I see private clients in Los Angeles, CA, and via Zoom; and offer women's workshops regularly in Santa Monica, CA.

Testimonials

Flower Art

"Working with Ana has been transformative. Initially, I sought to deepen my intuitive wisdom through somatic therapy and expressive arts. Since our first session, I've noticed a profound shift, becoming more attuned to somatic signals in my body.

Each session leaves a lasting impact, empowering me with practical somatic tools for self-reflection and healing. Ana's approach of integrating movement with dialogue allows for free expression without premature interpretation, leading to organic insights.

I've learned to trust the wisdom of my body, finding clarity and calmness amidst life's challenges. Ana's nurturing presence creates a safe environment, even in online sessions. This work provides practical solutions, simplifying action patterns and empowering me to navigate life guided by intuition and internal wisdom."
