First, let me welcome you! I am so happy our paths have crossed and that for whatever reason, you have been called here.
I’ll tell you a little about me and I’d love to hear more about you.
The first thing I want to say is that I am passionate about healing, wellness and community.
I have been through dark nights of the soul, I have been through periods of depression — and I believe those times are sacred and as hard as they were, they have taken me closer to my true calling.
From the time I was a small child, I knew that this life on earth was strange and temporary. I remember clearly sitting in my parents’ family room, surrounded by aunts and cousins, and thinking “how did I get here?” That memory has stayed with me on my journey here in this lifetime because it brings me back again and again to the questions that may stir in you from time to time: Why am I here? What is my purpose? What are my gifts and talents? What do I love? What am I meant to do on the planet? Who am I?
Trust me, I have been through all of these questions, time and time again.
I have healed through trauma, pain, doubt, fear and suffering.
And if there’s anything I know for sure, it’s that life is filled with challenge, but it is also filled with joy and possibility. And so that is what I am here to honor.
As a teacher.
As a facilitator.
As a writer.
As a guide.
My talents exist in community.
I hold the space of deep listening, whether in groups or in a 1:1 conversation or healing / coaching session.
I believe that all healing is relational.
It happens in communion with Spirit, with the earth, with your Ancestors, with your truest, deepest self, and with other humans as guides, companions and teachers.
I believe in our callings and that when we make space to listen and hear those inner wild calls, we are ALWAYS on our paths.
I am here for you.
I am a certified community counselor through the Southern CA Counseling Center. I have received advanced training as an intuitive channel from a beloved mentor. I have been facilitating groups for twenty years, and I am gifted at creating a safe container for all beings. I am also an attuned Reiki and energy healer, and have many teachers from various indigenous and spiritual traditions.
I am also a trained in intersectional feminisms and race & gender studies. I believe in justice, and I believe that our spiritual practices towards liberation includes freedom from oppression and reimagining this world we live in.
In particular, I am passionate about serving communities on the margins: queer & trans folks, women and femmes, people of color, and those moving through various challenges that are not only personal but political.
I am also passionate about the Body as a vessel of our healing: our body as the place we live that holds everything we’ve ever heard or experienced, and is also a powerful site of creativity and transformation.
I have studied the healing and spiritual arts of yoga, dance and meditation for nearly 30 years, and this is a significant part of my practice and the teachings I offer.
You are here for a reason. You have arrived to this webpage for a reason, and you are on this planet for a specific purpose.
My purpose is to support you in remembering who you already by offering my deep presence, insight, and a safe space for you to explore.
