Joyful Awakening

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.

All of my offerings are rooted in trauma-aware, anti-oppressive practices. Some of the ways I support folks include ❤️ wellness-centered therapy, ❤️ gender-affirming consults, ❤️ justice-centered clinical supervision, ❤️ anti-racist mentorship for white folks and ❤️ home-based space clearing. My healing framework is explicitly trauma-informed, anti-racist, queer and trans-affirming, fat and body positive and anti-oppressive.

I respectfully honor that I am practicing 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.
