I am a relational therapist who believes and practices that healing happens at the pace of the body, in relationship. I also believe, as adrienne maree brown says, that our pleasure is a measure of our liberation. In our work together, I strive to hold a generative container that welcomes and invites your healing, growth, liberation and transformation while supporting you in becoming your best, brightest self.
My healing framework is explicitly trauma-informed, anti-racist, queer/trans-affirming, fat/body positive and anti-oppressive. My healing style is somatic (meaning ‘in the body’) and some of my work with folks looks like helping folks to breathe, to listen deeply to their whole selves and to develop more fluency with their hearts and bodies.
My practice offerings include ❤️ wellness-centered therapy & EMDR, ❤️ gender-affirming consults for transgender and gender awesome folx, ❤️ justice-centered supervision for social workers and change makers and ❤️ anti-racist leadership coaching for white identified folx.
I orient my healing work with the awareness that I practice social work on colonized land, belonging to Indigenous communities and First Nations peoples. I recognize the continuous harm caused by structural racism and settler colonialism and support relational, reparative justice movements, the movement for black lives and white folks leveraging their unearned/unjust privileges to dismantle white supremacy and structural racism.
