Professional Counselor

Hi, I’m Dare (they/them), blessings to you and your people. I’m a nonbinary mixed-race somatic educator, Ancestral Trauma practitioner and ritual animist who specializes in helping folx heal relationships with their bodies, the earth, their ancestors, and the more-than-human world.

My Approach

The work I do is trauma-informed, nervous system based resiliency training via mending and re-enlivening relationships. I work with animist core values and practices to help you repair, on a nervous system level, your relations with 1) your Body 2) your Ancestors 3) the Land, our Earth mother and all her children 4) Spirits and the more-than-human, more-than-physical world. I use a consensual, safe and secure method of trance that allows access their ancestral lineages in the present moment. To that protocol I add my decades of experience with neuroscience based mindfulness training, somatics and expressive/ritual arts, all within a polyvagal and attachment theory lens that recognizes systemic environmental pressures including inherited inter-generational patterns of behavior, racism/anti-blackness, sexism/queer-antagonism, capitalism/inequity, colonialism and fundamentalism.

My Background

I help clients become more positively resourced, intelligently boundaried, and relationally supported (body, ancestors, land, spirit) through trauma-informed somatic journeywork and resiliency practices, which then allows one to more explore the edges, the troubles, in ways maintain our sense of center and support. My tagline is "Radical self-care at the threshold between personal, cultural and earth healing" because a person's nervous system both affects and is affected by the cultural nervous system and the Earth's nervous system. Healing our bodies is how we can begin to heal larger systems.
