My Approach

We are living in a time riddled with imbalance and injustice, and many of us are hurting. The legacy of white supremacy and capitalism is one of isolation, scarcity, disconnection, and abuse, and it has permeated every corner of our lives. Many of us are waking up and rising to meet these injustices, but find ourselves constantly struggling internally and collectively to sustain what we do. I believe we have the gifts and power necessary to confront these realities while not burning out or repeating the same harms. No one person has the complete answer, and it is essential that we learn exquisite communication and collaborative skills to meet the present together. In my practice with individuals and communities we focus on nurturing the development of deep bonds with our own bodies, the earth, and Mystery/the unseen/Spirit in order to offer our gifts more clearly and in service of the liberation of all beings.

My Background

I am a non-binary*, mixed heritage individual with training in counseling, spirit work, community organizing, and performance art. I have a Masters in Counseling from Lewis and Clark, a certificate in Ecopsychology, and am a practitioner with Jai Medina at The Balanzu Way School of Shamanic Arts. On my father's side my people hail from the northern region of India, and on my mother's side I hold French, Dutch, German, and Irish ancestry. I have been engaged in social justice work for over a decade and incorporate understandings of systemic privilege and oppression in my sessions with clients. During my Masters program I interned at Allies in Change where I worked with men who have been convicted of domestic violence crimes. *Non-binary: a gender identity that exists outside of the traditional gender binary of "man" or "woman," also known as genderqueer. I use "they/them" pronouns.
