What We Do Together
I am trained and certified in the “Hakomi” method and I am studying systems of oppression and how our developmental wounding is impacted by the systems within which we all live. Things that I prioritize in my work with clients are:
building toward a felt sense of self-compassion
naming and examining where and how our wounding is a result of systemic oppression (both in the role of “oppressor” and the role of “oppressed”)
developing capacity to stay with challenging emotions and experiences
getting to know and trust our intuition
claiming our own self, story and possibilities
embracing joy, pleasure and ease when they arise
learning to be more embodied more often
discovering together what practices nourish you and help you stay present in your own life as often as possible
I assist you in your own process of self-study, self-discovery and healing. I am not the expert- you are. I am here to gently help you see, feel and experience more about yourself and how you see the world in a safe and loving container. I am honored to do this work with you and am so grateful to all my clients for allowing me to walk with them on parts of their path toward greater wholeness.
I work in person and also by Zoom.
My guiding principles:
all systems (including yours) naturally unfold toward wholeness when in a supportive and nourishing environment
we create that environment together by collaborating compassionately with each other and with all of the parts of yourself
mindfulness helps us study how we experience ourselves and our lives and helps us get out of our automatic modes
deep spaciousness allows us to adjust our attitudes toward ourselves and encourages self-compassion
we are all products of our environments, we can’t study our individual wounding without understanding the systems that produced that wounding.
individual healing and collective healing are both important and necessary toward collective liberation
“What I want you to know is that radical self-love is not an impossibility. It is not even a destination. It’s your inherent sense of self. You came here, to this planet, as unapologetic self love.” - Sonya Renee Taylor
