WHO IS ANAIS SALIBIAN?
Having spent my adult life seeking, I am now living the life I always wanted. I feel so grateful to have work that satisfies two of my deepest longings: to be my whole self and to somehow help the world.
I'm an extrovert with an affinity for the inner life,which reveals itself to me often through nature and often through my writing. I also have a passion for science and need my beliefs to be grounded in reality. Over the years, I've integrated these interests to find and create processes I can offer people, both in private sessions and in the classroom, that help them live their authentic lives. Creating a safe space comes easily to me, as does working with diverse groups and asking the right questions.
I began my work life with a Master's degree in English Literature and Certification in Secondary Education. After teaching high school for five years, I became a licensed massage therapist in 1981 and started a private practice. At the same time, I was doing peer counseling and feeling frustrated that I couldn't somehow address the body and the emotions at the same time.
After a long search for an effective mind/body modality, I found Rosen Method Bodywork and Movement. Little did I know, at first, that my training would get me embodied enough to heal from my own trauma of being the child of Armenian genocide survivors.
In 1996, I became a Certified Bodywork Practitioner and have continued training until I became a Certified Bodywork Teacher in 2010.
