Bri Liu, LPC, RYT-200, TCYM
Bri is a Licensed Professional Counselor and Trauma-Informed & Inclusive Registered 200 Hr Yoga Teacher. She is passionate about working at the intersections of social justice, trauma, and mental health. She strives to help individuals and communities heal through connection, whether that be connection with themselves, their own inherent wisdom, body, and culture, or through enhancing their relationships with others and the world, and normalizing the need for interdependence. As a daughter of Chinese immigrants, herself, she is particularly drawn to working with other children of first-generation immigrants, especially those of Asian descent, people of culture/BIPOC, and anyone who holds a marginalized identity or holds a lived experience of feeling othered.
Bri is dedicated to creating spaces where all individuals feel a deep sense of belonging and acceptance, where they feel seen, validated, and un-judged, allowing for the repair and renegotiation of previous wounding experiences. With a curious heart and mind, her areas of interest are continuously morphing and shifting. At the heart of her work is the desire to explore ways to acknowledge and heal the traumas that arise out of chronic experiences of disconnection and oppression, and an acknowledgement that US/Western culture is built on the back of systems of oppression.
Bri is trained in a variety of somatic therapies, including Somatic Experiencing, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Body-Mind Psychotherapy and Internal Family Systems. She is also drawn to Indigenous and Ancient philosophies and modalities of healing (and acknowledges that many current somatic therapies are rooted in these Indigenous/Ancient practices), as well as relational and liberation theories.
