Healing is an Inside Job
Video Interview Coming Soon!
Dear [insert your amazing name here],
No matter where you are in your journey, I am here to support you with embodying wellness in all areas of your life. Together we can explore what it means to be who you are, reconnect with your body, commune with nature, learn new patterns of thinking, find your voice, and heal. My warm and grounded presence provides a safe space for you to explore how beautiful and amazing, but often times our wounded relationship to our physical selves and the more than human world* can impact our relationships, creativity, general well-being, and even our ability to reason and learn.
I integrate innovations such as non-violence, mindfulness, and body-mind holism with my training in Expressive Arts, Authentic Movement, Ecotherapy, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Hakomi Experiential Psychotherapy, and Psychedelic Harm Reduction & Integrations Therapy to work creatively and collaboratively with adults, couples, romantic partners and families.
*More-than-human refers to contexts in which multiple species and processes come together to produce a result.
We aspire to learn your way of being present where there is darkness, suffering, oppression, and despair, so we can bring light, hope, relief, and liberation to those places.
We are determined not to forget about or abandon those in desperate situations.
We will do our best to establish contact with those who cannot find a way out of their suffering, those whose cries for help, justice, equality, and human rights are not being heard.
We know that hell can be found in many places on Earth.
We will do our best not to contribute to creating more hells on Earth, and we will help transform the hells that already exist.
We will practice in order to realize the qualities of perseverance and stability, so that, like the Earth, we can always be supportive and faithful to those in need.
