Smith Ilene is a Certified Professional Coach (CPC) through the GROW Training Institute, Inc. and holds a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling and a Masters degree in Exercise Physiology.  Ilene has passed the National Clinical Mental Health Counseling Examination (NCMHCE) qualifying her for licensure in Arizona. Ilene is a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP) and completed a 3-year training with the Somatic Experiencing Institute founded by Peter Levine.

Ilene’s work is rooted in the principles of Somatic Experiencing (SE) and attachment theory. Her training in trauma healing provides the foundation to help clients resolve trauma symptoms and relieve chronic stress and pain in the body. Integrating several modalities into her practice including talking, touch work and movement, Ilene is able to support the body tissue memory and nervous system to create synergy between the body and mind. Her work supports clients in developing a deeper and safer relationship within and ultimately greater capacity for resilience and joy.  Clients move from states of fixity to a life of fluidity, ease and vitality. Through her extensive studies in physiology and nervous system regulation she has developed techniques and methods to safely bring clients from trauma states back into a new and empowered body. The result of this process is freedom and expansion allowing clients to experience autonomy and self-respect.
