I use nonviolent communication (NVC) as a tool for helping those who are new to awareness-based communication methods, sharing their emotions and needs, or as a first step in beginning to build one's capacity for more authentic communication. I see NVC as a stepping stone for many looking to deepen their communication with partners, friends, and others.
I am trained in Process Work, which uses somatic awareness practices to work with body symptoms, nighttime dreams, relational difficulties, vision for the world, and more. Through embodiment of that which attracts or disturbs us, we can often gain insights that can bring new ways of being and living our lives more fully. Embodiment can allow for a more rapid integration of these learnings.
Through my training at the Process Work Institute, I learned how to take realizations, new ways of seeing, and breakthroughs in therapeutic work in the direction of day-to-day integration. My practice uses integration of these in-session realizations as well as more traditional coaching in helping clients to consider their path forward in tangible ways and in ways that can help them to succeed.
As an experienced non-monogamous practitioner, I work with polyamorous, non-monogamous, and relationship anarchist individuals, couples, and polycules to deepen their relational practices toward greater autonomy and deeper relatedness. I believe that it is important as someone from these identities to work with someone who has lived and understand these experiences, and can help with the different challenges along the way.
I have engaged in social movement work of different types for most of the last decade, with a specific focus on transformative justice and how to heal in relationship. Coming from several privileged identities, I have done significant work to deeply transform how that training shows up and how to support others to build this awareness as well.
I specialize in working with white people who care deeply about racial justice work and wish to expand their awareness and personal journey on the path of racial justice. I use a mix of theatre, embodied exploration, and talk methods to deepen help racial justice-oriented white people move beyond frozenness, defensiveness, and fragility toward greater resilience on their racial justice journey.
I entered psychology through men's work where I learned to work with men who are working on their identity, deeper relationship with their emotions, and more right relationship with others in their lives. As someone socialized as male and with a radical feminist perspective, I would be a good fit for men looking to grow in this direction.
I've worked with couples and families where conflict seems to be tearing the relationship/family apart. I support couples and families to build resilience in the face of these conflicts and use the conflict as an opportunity to grow into themselves more fully. I also come with an unbiased view, appreciating that some conflicts mean an end while others can be an opportunity for transformation.
