Everyone has a story....
This is mine.
I used to dwell in dark spaces.
It was inevitable given what I endured. But I was lost there and almost didn’t find my way out.
My proudest triumph is my own redemption, a reckoning that happened over years and all at once. It was a choice made and then bravely repeated each day - to live, to claim my life and self as my own, to hunt for myself in the rubble. To call myself home.
To know I am worth my own deliverance.
I am still called to the dark, but as a visitor now. I go to explore and forage, to mine for the truth in its endless forms. To share my light.
I have neither wisdom nor certainty. Instead, I come with heart, hope and wonder.
My words are an offering, nourishment on our journeys back home to ourselves.
I’m far more interested in who someone is then in what they do, but of course we are shaped by our experiences and exposures.
Here are a few of mine:
I have a B.A. in psychology from Occidental College and am a licensed massage therapist. I am certified in SEO fundamentals.
I worked as a social worker for several years before transitioning to massage therapy. I owned and operated a massage business for 19 years which I closed in 2020 to write full-time.
I have spent my life invested in personal growth and transformational work, including trauma healing, deconditioning from shame and socialized oppression and repairing a fractured relationship with my body. I employ such modalities as personal coaching, yoga, embodied movement, sound healing, neural manifestation and breath work.
I am an activist dedicated to the liberation of our planet and its inhabitants. Anti-racism work is my current priority. My learning space is with a group of other white women doing the embodied inner work to divest from white supremacy.
