About My Clients

Somatic therapy enlists the innate intelligence of the body as a catalyst for health. Because mind-body disconnect is often related to our deepest emotional wounds, attunement to our body’s responses to stressors is essential to healing. By bringing awareness to how emotions, sensations, thoughts & memories interconnect and influence each other, somatic psychology brings us home to ourselves. Upcoming workshop :: *Somatic Tools for Anxiety* - Sat, Feb 3rd. - somatic-justice.com/events

My Background and Approach

My experience as a community organizer, movement facilitator and activist have helped me grow skills for attunement and depth with clients. My work integrates Attachment Theory, Polyvagal Theory, Liberation Psychology & Restorative Justice practices with trauma-informed care. I have a B.A. in Kinesiology, completed a graduate program in Somatic Psychology and am now an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist. My coursework and classmates at CIIS (California Institute of Integral Studies) have provided me a framework in decolonization and collectivist wisdoms, focusing on the interplay between power, oppression and privilege – both interpersonally and systemically.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I take a “power-with” shape in providing care and unconditional kind regard. I am passionate about sharing therapeutic space with people of all genders, spiritual and sexual orientations, neurotypes and cultures. For me, being a trauma-informed somatic therapist means that within our sessions, pacing is important and attuning to sensations & emotions is key. Getting to know our nervous systems helps us understand how our past is informing our present. Many of us humans have become fragmented from trauma and oppression. Together, we are building awareness through embodiment and re-writing outdated narratives.
