About

Eveline Wu began her journey to become a therapist, 20 years ago, when she first studied the Feldenkrais Method in her own journey of healing. She has offered sessions as a practitioner of Feldenkrais Somatic Education to clients with chronic pain and trauma for 16 years.

During that time, she discovered somatic therapy through her own work, and continuing to grow and study in the field. She then studied the Anat Baniel Method for Children, an advanced Feldenkrais system of understanding how to work with the relationship between movement, emotional and cognitive development. She also did workshops with Pat Ogden and Hakomi Somatics, including for bodywork.

Since that time she has studied Inner Relationship Focusing, two years with the late Bill Bowen in Psychophysical therapy, Sensorimotor Level I, and workshops and supervision in formative psychology, AEDP, and somatic experiencing. She has extensive touch for psychotherapy training with somatic experiencing trainer Kathy Kain, as well as Bill Bowen and other teachers. She graduated with an MA from the California Institute of Integral Studies 2011-2014. She founded Diversity Perspectives in Somatics, a CIIS student group focused on bringing in speakers on topics like Embodied Oppression, and cross-cultural considerations in somatic psychology, which was also the focus of her studies.

Eveline has a BA from UC Berkeley in Sociology with Highest Honors, and also attended Wesleyan University. Her background was an activist in Asian American issues. She is a former competitive gymnast, has taught skiing to children with special needs, and continues to enjoy skiing and dancing.

She is second generation Chinese American, and grew up in California, but has lived in both New York City and Alaska.
