Trauma-Informed, Body-Positive, Queer/Trans Affirming, Anti-Oppressive
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 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 affirmation, health concerns, grief and loss, navigating extreme states and life transitions. I welcome those who hold their change work as the intention of inviting more wellness into their lives.
As a trauma-worker, I understand that many folks who are surviving interpersonal, developmental, historical and/or structural trauma & oppression can experience a lot of pain in their bodies. As someone who believes deeply in listening to the body’s inherent wisdom, my healing practice is anchored in mutual consent, safety first and going at the pace of the body.
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. 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 and trans-affirming, fat and body positive and anti-oppressive. I am currently receiving training/supervision in the healing modality of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). I respectfully honor that I am practicing social work on colonized land belonging to Indigenous communities and First Nations peoples.
