Racheli Wercberger

I’m a queer, nonbinary, white Jewish somatic practitioner currently practicing and living in San Francisco, California, on occupied Ramaytush-Ohlone land.​ I use they/them pronouns. I firmly believe that the work we do on ourselves ripples out to affect the world we live in. I have had personal experiences with the power of somatics to heal attachment wounds, transform limiting beliefs, metabolize trauma, and support a sense of inner connection, resilience, and vitality, and I’m passionate about supporting people on their own healing journeys. I specialize in working with issues related to trauma, attachment, queerness, gender, polyamory, spirituality, grief, and psychedelic integration.
My style is collaborative, relational, somatic, and trauma-informed. I believe that there is already a brilliant inner wisdom within each of us—my goal is then to provide your psyche with attentive loving-kindness, gentle guidance, and a safe container so that your healing may unfold. I am comfortable holding the messy and hard parts of life and relationships with you, as well as sitting in reverence and celebrating the magic of it all. I often provide psychoeducation and offer tools, resources, and information about the psychology and neuroscience that underlie your healing processes.
I am a certified Hakomi practitioner (CHP), I am trained in Relational Somatic Healing (RSH), and I am Internal Family Systems (IFS) informed. I also hold a doctoral degree in neuroscience from the University of California San Francisco, where I studied the neural circuitry underlying chronic pain and itch. Before becoming a somatic practitioner, I’ve been a researcher and teacher, primarily teaching classes on the intersection of science, philosophy, and society.
