"Kindred Healing Justice"

I'm an Embodiment Coach and Artist. You will find me in my community centered on Cara Page's concept of "Kindred Healing Justice" and David Bedrick's Unshaming. Deep Spirit Healing happens in the body & present moment relationship. 




Lineage and Resources

Lineage refers to the wise guides who have shaped my journey. For me, this comes with reverent honor and deepest soul-gratitude, a bow of respect. Resources are tools that I have been guided to that have also shaped my healing.

Paula Peterson

Paula Peterson is my therapist and is currently serving people on Better Help's platform. Without her commitment to soulful, radical attachment work, I would not be here. I am proud and delighted that she is the foremost guide in my lineage.

Brainspotting & Self-Brainspotting

I can show you how to self brainspot, and we can utilize the wisdom of brainspotting anytime we are working together. This knowledge of the eye's gaze, holding body sensations until they fully express themselves, being seen and held in relationship with all your feelings, and deep brain healing may be just the transformational experience you are looking for.

Nervous System Science

A lot of therapy can be deeply re-traumatizing because it is not aware of the science behind the body, nervous system, and trauma.  The Body Keeps the Score by Bessel van der Kolk is a book chalk full of science that just may change your life. I've voraciously consumed nervous system trauma education ever since. The body never lies. That's science.

Embodiment, Yoga, and Mindfulness

Yoga has been at the center of my nervous system healing journey. Through yoga, dance, embodiment exercises, somatics and bodywork, I can gain a dynamic relationship with the ever-changing waves of ventral vagal, dorsal vagal, and sympathetic nervous system states. This work, paired with IFS, Unshaming, Attachment Work, Zen practice, and scientific understanding brings me into a state of unity with my body, mind, and spirit...which is the heart of yoga.

Teaching me a radical new way for being in relationships, feeling pleasure, and walking earth as a Healer & Feeler

Energy and Spirit Work

Energy and Spirit work differs for everyone. I work within the range of consent of your own spiritual experience. I believe in the Sovereign Self, and work in a way that guides you back to your inherent wisdom and body-knowing. All spirit work and energy work remains rooted in and curious about the body and present moment. Resonance meditations, spirit place prayers, Time/Space Alchemy,  Higher Power healing, and deep gut intuitive knowings have been at the forefront of full bodied healing for me.
