I'm Bríd, it is an Irish name pronounced "Breed". I was born in County Tipperary, Ireland where my ancestral roots are from. I moved to Ventura California in 2000 with my husband and have raised two children here. My office is at The Holistic Healing Center in Ventura, California.
Bríd is a Registered Craniosacral Therapist RCST® BCST with the North American Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Association and has completed a 700+ hour Biodynamic Craniosacral Training with Body Intelligence. Having a deep interest in holistic modalities as well as complementary medicine over a 20-year span has helped shape her into the craniosacral therapist she is today. Bríd integrates Somatic Experiencing® techniques routinely into her sessions which help to provide a rich framework for understanding and addressing trauma in one’s nervous system. Bríd also shares her time as an assistant tutor with Body Intelligence Craniosacral Practitioner Trainings.
You might be asking what is that? Well, physical or emotional pain, stress, and trauma get stored in our body and needs to be released. Everything that happens to us is stored in our body until we are ready to facilitate its release. If you know you have some trauma from the past, here is the news; This trauma is still affecting you now! It is the stuff from your past that you won't release, that ends up tripping you up today. For example, you get triggered and you act up. It is hugely important to deal with those issues before you pass them on.
I've been on my own healing journey utilizing many different holistic modalities for the past 20 years. In my experience, Craniosacral Therapy and Somatic Experiencing techniques have been the most effective therapies for my healing journey. By healing my own past trauma, I have learned how to hold a safe and gentle space so others can heal too.
If you would like to tune into, connect, and comprehend the language that your unique body is speaking to you, then please consider me to help you on your own personal journey.
I invite and welcome clients of all races, genders, identities, abilities, and backgrounds to my practice.
BIODYNAMIC CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is derived from Osteopathic Medicine. It uses therapeutic light touch to orient to health and restore wellness in the body. It is a unique form of educated, gentle, non-invasive soft touch therapy that helps to create and maintain health in the human system by relaxing tension patterns held in the tissue of the body. Craniosacral Therapy also supports nervous system regulation and allows the resolution of conditions resulting from physical or emotional stress, pain and trauma. It is a deep listening from the practitioner’s hands to the ever-present expression of health within the client’s system.
RESOURCING & SUPPORTIVE VIRTUAL SESSIONS
My virtual sessions are a combination of tools from my Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy work, a wide range of somatic therapeutic skills integrating Somatic Experiencing Therapy, and meditation practices.

I can highly recommend CST with Bríd. I've been working on embodiment for a while and recently finding myself in deep resistance causing physical pain in my body as well as emotional turmoil. Bríd guided me into a deeply relaxed meditative state where I was able to find the root causes. She held the space beautifully as I started to uncover and release ancient trauma along with present day patterns and protection mechanisms. I felt safe and comfortable throughout due to Bríds grounded professionalism and compassionate observance. I received deep healing and much needed clarity. I am eternally grateful! Thank you Bríd
