My Ideal Client

I will be on leave from mid-August until mid-November 2023- please reach out then! The folks I work with are interested in embodied, wholesome pleasure, self-expression, creativity, and peace. They struggle with issues related to chronic fight, flight, freeze, and fawn responses.

My Background and Approach

I am a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and am trained in Organic Intelligence, two modalities that work with the body and nervous system in healing from chronic stress and supportive post-traumatic growth. I offer deep listening, empathy, guidance, and experiential practice based on an understanding of how the body holds and processes chronic stress. I have a background in bodywork, Empowerment Self-Defense, nonprofit work, and mindfulness. My practice is deeply influenced by many years of study in my former Buddhist lineage, as well as study in nonviolent communication, healthy relationship, systems theory, feminist and LGBTQ issues.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that we deserve to be seen and heard with non-judgement, compassion and positive regard, and that our nervous systems do what they do for a reason (many reasons). I believe that toxic shame can be healed, and that we can continually seek out the support, nourishment and feedback we need to learn, heal and grow, in order to align with our real values and to express our hopes and dreams. Authentic and sustainable change comes from a place of safety, respect and self-love. I identify as femme, queer, nerd (for somatics and other things), and live South of Portland, OR with my partner and two cats. My interests include learning from indigenous perspectives, decolonization, animism, feminism, dance, writing, music, cooking and baking, backpacking and gardening.
