Attuning Humans to the Biosphere.
Welcome Kindred Spirits.
I accept you in your totality. I am not here to help you deny anything. Rather, I am here to help you rearrange and get to the center of your energy.
Thank you for giving me an opportunity to be in service to you. As a scholarly trained Earth-based healer, my work aims to encompass the whole of the human. Our imbalances, whether emotional, energetic, physical, or spiritual, are sourced at the root of our disconnect from nature. It is a grave disservice to approach one, without looking and listening more closely to all aspects of what it means to be human.
Counseling, with a heart-centered approach, is my impassioned gift (mental health, relationship, family, spiritual, integrative wellness). I imagine we both have something to learn from one another. I see you as whole, and strive to assist you in remembering. Matters of the mind/emotions are almost always rooted in wounds of the spirit, often creating imbalances in the body. We must go to the root of a thing: to observe, feel, reconcile and transcend the blockages that stand between us and our joy. Between imbalance and balance. A journey back to sacred Oneness.
Human motivation and the nuances of our experience in this embodied form truly fascinate me. I specialize in working with trauma and post-traumatic stress. I am not here to diagnose, nor support diagnoses that serve to stigmatize and create harm. Together, we collaborate to help you shift how you hold your experiences and tell your stories, and learn to use them as powerful medicine. To return to your joy. Expect that I will hold you to your greatness.
I use various modes of healing, attuning clients to the Land—to Earth—bringing them into harmonious union within themselves and their environments. Essentially, my offerings assist you in relaxing into your own energy, starting by forging trusted relationships.
We are all traveling here together, at the speed of light, eternally supported by the Biosphere that contains us.
From my earliest years, I have been akin to the elements, to life, and all forms of sentience. The Great Mother has held me in her arms, nurtured me, and carried me as I walked my path. She holds the answers if we listen, feel, and re-member. Nature is our greatest teacher, a natural medicine for most all human ills. I walked miles to be with her, to touch my hands to her belly, to return and heal, traveling lifetimes to be here and remember the profound truths that set us all free.
I am especially interested in keeping the old ways alive, where people were connected to the Earth and trusted in her healing gifts. I spent the last 14 years on my own path to back to the light of inner-standing. The journey continues as my heart expands a little more each day, each year. People are the medicine. Each interaction I am gifted the opportunity to have is sacred. In 2014, I began traveling to SE Asia to expand my understanding of Ayurvedic medicine and practices, focusing Tibetan medicine. I draw from East Asian and my own Native ancestral ways of knowing/being, to encourage a more communal, balanced, and heart-centered way of existing in the world. Today, I travel the path of the heart in service to humanity, and the removal of the veils plaguing the mind, body, and spirit of the masses.
I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Religious Studies from Guilford College University in 2015, then went on to complete my graduate work at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in Women’s and Gender Studies. Given humans are social animals, I wanted to understand how the world’s religions and cultural practices shaped the psychology of the people, and how the psychology of the people worked to create social systems and policies that privilege a few while marginalizing many.
Specifically, my studies looked closely at the disparity is social systems, peace and conflict studies, trauma–its residual effects on the brain and future response patterns, and how it gets criminalized when left unresolved; and the inhumane treatment of marginalized people at the hands of the carceral state. I am advocate for ending systemic racism, racial capitalism, and all forms of oppression globally. It is imperative we begin creating communities of safety and taking care of one another, while resisting in ways that work to dismantle all systems of oppression. I work daily to build bridges of reconciliation within the hearts of humans, so we may see peace reflected in the world around us.
I spent two semesters abroad during my academic career to immerse myself within a culture experientially. In that way, the people and places became a part of me, as I pray was a mutual exchange between myself and those lands. New horizons of understanding opened, leading me to other ways of BEing, more generative to my Self and the world around me. Each day, I strive to find what gives me joy and how to be useful to the world around me. We, as a collective, exhaust so much energy on what we do not like, or what needs to be shifted in the current paradigm. Yet, we give little attention to intentional solutions or simply put–what we actually do want. I am dedicated to creating pathways of service rooted in the awareness that my own liberation is deeply tied to others’. At the core of every living being, is the ultimate desire to be free. Offering my Self as a conduit, a portal of sorts, here to walk with you as you re-member your own light.
Travel Light Beloveds.
