About My Clients

I work primarily with 2SLGBTQIA+ folx, particularly emphasizing Queer, Trans, BIPOC, Ethically Non-Monogamous, Polyamorous, Kink communities who are interested on working on issues of embodiment, culture, gender, relationship, sexuality, immigration & diaspora. I am passionate about helping people unwind patterns of embodied trauma and oppression that lives in our nervous systems towards personal & collective liberation.

My Background and Approach

Certificate in somatic resourcing (2013), graduated with an M.A. in somatic counseling psychology from CIIS (2014), somatic experiencing intermediate year completed in 2023 and advanced with BIPOC cohort scheduled in 2024. I am affiliated with the following organizations: USABP, Bay Area Open Minds, Gaylesta, Queer Trans Therapist of Color Network, Sonoma County BIPOC Therapist Collective, Kink Aware Professionals, & Poly Friendly Professionals. I strive to personally and professionally build spaces that are embodied, queer, & decolonizing. I receive regular consultation in my practice specializations. I also have a lifelong practice of and reverence for embodied creative process, eros & pleasure activism, spirituality, & integration of psychedelic experiences. I practice vajrayana buddhism, art-making, conscious dance, & cross-cultural shamanism. I view embodiment, creativity, singing, dance, movement, sexual health, & non-ordinary states as indigenous to all our bodies.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My practice is grounded in values of radical embodiment, anti-racism, queer & trans liberation, & decolonizing gender, sexuality, & relationship. I view dismantling of colonial cisheteropatriarchal structures, including gender binaries & mononormativity, as forms of queering & decolonizing. In my practice I strive to integrate these broad values through a embodied experiential practice. I help folx develop gentle compassionate curiosity about their inner bodily landscape as an entry point to reclaiming their direct inner & ancestral knowing.
