My path to post-traumatic growth has been all about embodiment and has led me to the study and practice of movement, meditation, Somatic Experiencing and sacred sexuality It’s been a cyclical journey from surviving to thriving, continually bringing me home to the wisdom of the body, the medicine of the earth and the magic of the ancestors.
I have a Master's degree in Counselling, a Certificate in Feminist Narrative Therapy and I aim to be justice-oriented and anti-oppressive in my practice. That means that I’m committed to unlearning toxic systems of oppression and ways of being, and I do my best to hold space for you to do the same. The dominant culture propagates sex negativity and limiting gender roles, so it can be helpful to spend some time looking at what stories we’re holding and inquiring as to where they came from and who they’re serving.
My approach to healing is somatic, attachment-based and I have a holistic orientation towards sexuality which means that I believe that the erotic touches every aspect of life. Through looking at your relationships with yourself, your body, the earth, and the people you care about, we can get a sense of where you're stuck, as well as the gifts you have that can help transcend the stuckness.
I welcome clients of all gender identities, sexual orientations and relationship styles.
