Accepting Clients

I consider the therapeutic space to be sacred; akin to a laboratory, art studio or garden where we can learn and unlearn to know ourselves.

About My Clients

I work with individuals, couples and adolescents who are curious, sensitive and intuitive. People who are healers and therapists in training, artists, activists, seekers, adventurers, plant lovers, and/or witches. I work with people using creative and relational approaches to healing such as ancestor work, fantasy explorations, ritual, art, tarot and simply being together in whatever is. Topics served include: intergenerational trauma, grief, major transitions and the internal critic.

My Background and Approach

I approach this work from a humanistic lens weaving in somatic, transpersonal and psychodynamic orientations. I am rooted in the belief that the client and I are co-creators and adventurers in the process of healing. When we are grounded in the present and in the relationship, the awareness and the subsequent understanding of ourselves that emerges can contribute to an alchemical healing process. I work with empathy, curiosity and creativity to meet clients where they are in their lives. Through a liberation psychology lens, I invite an exploration of our relationships to systemic oppression. Bringing awareness to how systemic oppression shows up for us can be work that transforms and empowers us. I take a somatically informed approach, that is slow and gentle in nature, to help clients address and move through any trauma that they may hold. Some of my trainings include courses and workshops in Hakomi, Reiki and Jungian dreamwork.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I consider the therapeutic space to be sacred; akin to a laboratory, art studio or garden where we can learn and unlearn as we get to know our deepest selves. I am inspired by gathering, infinite interconnectedness, plant wisdom, movement, poetry, liminal spaces, the ocean, seed sovereignty, art and tarot. I acknowledge that I am a descendant of white settlers living and practicing on unceded Yelamu, Ramaytush Ohlone land. I pay a rematriation land tax to the Sogorea Te’ Land Trust and work to dismantle white supremacy. https://sogoreate-landtrust.org/shuumi-land-tax/
