Hello, My name is Ana Liz Ceregatti (she/her)
I am a Brazilian Somatic Therapist & Educator via Somatic Meditation & Mindfulness (IMMA / CPD) and Creative Arts, and a Multidisciplinary Artist. I hold a BA in Art and am currently training in Movement-based Expressive Arts Therapy through the Tamalpa Institute. I've worked as an artist, performer, and educator for 15 years and started my teaching journey mentoring teens in visual arts and creative writing. I have a profound passion for somatic and art-based healing. Some modalities I have studied and practiced are Expressive Movement/Dance, Yoga, Experimental Theater, therapeutic self-portraiture, Somatic Meditation & Mindfulness, Vipassana, Buddhist Psychology, and Carl Jung's Active Imagination.
I offer art-based interventions to underserved youth in Los Angeles, and as a volunteer, in 2019, I facilitated art classes for the elder impacted with dementia through Alzheimer's LA. Since 2018, I support adults of various ages and backgrounds on their healing and self-development journey through embodiment.
The body is the bridge between inner and outer worlds, our greatest teacher and guide. My work with self-portraiture and my own trauma-healing therapy process led me to the Tamalpa Institute (Life/Art Process®), where I am currently enrolled to become certified as a Movement-Based Expressive Arts Therapist and Educator.
Through my studies, professional and personal experiences, and multi-cultural background, I have crafted a way of working with people as a guide and witness in their processes. I am passionate about supporting women in reclaiming their bodies as their sacred territory. At the heart of my work is a person-centered, trauma-informed approach that empowers people to honor themselves as they are now while working creatively and intentionally to generate insight, healing, and individual + social transformation.
"Ana Liz has a beautiful immersive quality, both in her movement practice and in her art making process. Such open vulnerability encourages both those who witness her, and those who work with her, not only to brave the shadow side of themselves, but to embrace the heights of joy, beauty, self-love, and acceptance."
