I draw from ritual, art, writing, and nature in assisting you in transforming personal challenges into power, strength, and resiliency.

I am a ritualist. I believe that all beings are full of infinite potential. Sometimes that potential gets blocked, or damaged by traumatic events, big or small, that throw us off balance. My goal is to provide safe space where together we can explore creative methods to restore balance and harmony to your life. With you as our guide, I use mindfulness, art tools, and elements of nature to explore how you might shift stuck, traumatic, or painful energy into direct empowering action. As a non-binary queer, Cherokee/Irish person I understand the oppressive nature of counseling and work from a social justice lens. I currently work exclusively with clients through video chat, which allows me to keep fees in a more affordable sliding scale range. Please inquire about additional fee reductions available for black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC).
I have 25 years of personal healing experience. I have 20 years experience working with spiritual teachers, and elders who have taught me the art of sacred ritual. My teachers have been Indigenous American, and Priestess Witches. I utilize the tools my teachers have given me in my work with others. For 10 years I worked as a wilderness counselor in a therapeutic program for marginalized teens. Additionally, I have worked with trauma survivors, in various organizations, for 7 years. I have a degree in ethology, the study of animal behavior. This degree provides a solid foundation for understanding how all animals, human and non-human, move through trauma to resiliency. For my master's degree I incorporated personal and cultural trauma in my work. I studied how oppressed groups of people have used art to transform trauma into healing and personal power. In my practicum I worked with marginalized people assisting them in turning trauma into artistic expression.
