Healing for individuals, groups, organizations & movements
We are living in a time that requires radically new leadership, ways of being, and organizing strategies to achieve social justice and liberation. For too long, our personal and collective healing have been ignored or rendered less important than “the work”. Issues related to systemic oppression and the trauma that results from them must be addressed. If they are not, we will continue to undermine our efforts to break free of all that holds us back from who we really are and what we are here to do.
I work with individuals, groups, organizations and movement leaders to address the root causes of the issues that get in the way of their wellness, sustainability and radical leadership. I center trauma-informed practice and healing justice to provide the space, skills and tools needed to engage in transformation. I believe our collective liberation requires deep personal reflection and healing and that this work ripples out to heal all we come into contact with.
HEALING is the WORK and the WORK is HEALING.
Who I Work With:
I have a commitment to serving communities most impacted by HIV and AIDS, queer and trans people of color, People of African descent, and formerly incarcerated people. I have more than 15 years of experience working at the intersections of racial, gender, queer and economic justice.
CONSULTATION & TRAINING
* ORGANIZATIONAL DEVELOPMENT: I work with groups and organizations to increase staff cohesion, communication and effectiveness. I support organizational leaders to develop systems of support to increase sustainability and promote staff development.
* TRAINING: I provide training on trauma, self-care, gender & racial justice, and HIV/AIDS.
* PROJECT MANAGEMENT
For thousands of years, people have followed the patterns of the cosmos. From the rising and setting of the sun, to the cycle of the seasons and the phases of the moon, the original peoples on this planet understood the deep connection we have to the Universe. I use astrology as a tool to help people discover their connection to the energies that make them who they are. Astrology can be used to find balance, alignment and meaning. I provide natal chart readings as well as transit readings paired with spiritual coaching to support transformation and change.
PSYCHOTHERAPY & CLINICAL SUPERVISION
Psychotherapy provides a space to be witnessed and supported on your healing journey. In my private practice I work with individuals, couples, and families. I have expertise working with trauma, anxiety, depression, substance use/abuse, living with chronic illness, grief and loss, coming out, and supporting families through transitions.
I also provide clinical supervision to psychotherapists seeking licensure in California.
GROUPS & RETREATS
I love to create spaces for collective healing and transformation. Through skillful facilitation, I can hold a healing circle for your group to deepen connection, reflection, and to process grief and conflict. I also have extensive experience both leading and coordinating retreats. I will launch a Healing Circle for black folks in the Bay Area beginning in Spring 2017.
Please note: I am currently unable to accept new psychotherapy clients.
