I support folx with a lived experience of trauma to move through pain & discomfort, to heal brilliantly & unapologetically & to feel at home in their bodies. I can help you: uncover & remember what is beautiful and whole about yourself; attune & respond to the deep wisdom of your body; compassionately attend to shame & trauma responses; deepen your capacity for presence with experiences that may now feel intolerable; discover what healing looks & feels like in your body/mind/spirit/heart.
IFS teaches us to compassionately understand our thoughts, emotions, behaviors and feelings as a response to systemic wounding and protection rather than the result of pathology. In this way, we work within your inner world by honoring and collaborating with your body’s protective system rather than fighting or overriding it. IFS is a beautifully queer healing lineage that invites the practices of deep witnessing, trust-building, nurturing and self-attunement to help us feel whole and free.
EMDR is a highly effective healing modality that helps us to sustainably metabolize past traumas and griefs instead of reliving them. Some people call this evidence based, I call it folk medicine–healing pathways that belong to you, are uncovered within the container of our relationship, that tap into your deep embodied knowingness of how to heal. EMDR works by catalyzing your body’s innate wisdom and deep capacity for healing and transformation. It is both magic and science.
Being in our bodies is the work of listening deeply to our whole selves. My healing style is somatic and some of my work with folks looks like helping folks to breathe, to listen deeply to their whole selves and to develop more fluency with their hearts and bodies. I believe the best therapy will always invite your fullness into the room and that by working in the body and attuning toward our full selves we step into our healing.
I am a complex trauma specialist and have been practicing for over 20 years. I help trauma survivors to move through pain and discomfort, to heal brilliantly and unapologetically and to feel at home in their bodies. I am an IFS-Informed EMDR trauma therapist with many years of experience working with traumatized parts and ongoing learning in the work of supporting and treating structural dissociation. I accompany people in the deep work of making real what our souls know is possible.
As a trauma-worker & someone who believes deeply in listening to the body’s inherent wisdom, my healing practice is anchored in mutual consent, safety first and going at the pace of the body. I practice IFS & EMDR as some of many pathways towards trauma healing, drawing also from somatic healing modalities, polyvagal theory, interpersonal neurobiology and liberation based healing. I believe that healing happens in relationship, at the pace of the body & orient my work from that understanding.
As a queer fat femme, I anchor a healing space that celebrates the fabulousness and fulness of your gender. I hold a healing space where trans and nonbinary folx can enter into your healing work without having to explain yourself or make yourself smaller. I also support folx to access medical transition like surgeries with low-barrier, single session, & sliding scale gender affirming consults. My values align with the Informed Consent for Access to Trans Health (ICATH) model of care.
I am a liberation-based healer who practices at the intersection of oppression and trauma. I approach my work with the support of my ancestors, my longing (and willingness to work) for a decolonized world, my gift of reaching for that very real possibility of healing and breathing life into it. I have an intractable knowingness that our imagination, creativity and visionary souls guide us toward healing. That our bodies and hearts are strong enough to hold this.
