I am a relational therapist who believes and practices that healing happens at the pace of the body and in relationship. I also believe, as adrienne maree brown says, that our pleasure is a measure of our liberation. I celebrate the courageousness of folks who are seeking their best-life and honor that wellness and whole-heartedness means different things to different bodies. This diversity of lived experience is beautiful and I am committed to meeting folks at their starting place. 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.
Through the exploration and expansion of our human inclination towards growth, we cultivate and enliven our capacity for resilience, inviting radical acceptance to support the integration of our full emotional selves, honoring and navigating the things that get in the way of joy and vibrancy.
I support folks who are cultivating resiliency in many different areas of their life: anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma & (complex) post-traumatic stress injury, oppression, relationship with food, relationship with your body, identity claiming, gender transition, health concerns, grief and loss, navigating extreme states and life transitions. I also welcome those who hold their change work as the intention of inviting more wellness into their lives.
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.
