Personal Work

I offer private sessions for people seeking personal liberation work that is informed by our struggle toward collective liberation. I use methods that may remind you of talk therapy, dream work, somatic work, and relationship work to help you live in alignment with your deepest values.

My style is especially informed by Processwork, Nonviolent Communication, social justice organizing, and various awareness practices. I often refer to this work as an alternative to traditional coaching and therapy.


I offer a handful of workshops that will help you build…

  • a next-level understanding of oppression

  • personal and relational skills for working with oppression

  • community with like-minded folks

Conflict Facilitation

I offer conflict facilitation and training to support social change advocates with personal growth and violence prevention.

For Educators and Schools

For educators and schools, I offer workshops and one-on-one support around cultivating liberatory classroom culture, equitable grading practices, and personal and professional growth work.

I also work with Beam Pedagogy, an educator wellness project, to create a school system where educators experience agency, self-worth, joy, and creativity on a daily basis.

For Conferences

For conferences seeking to build strong containers for their content and relationships, I offer consulting related to establishing conference culture, affinity groups, and restorative circles. I also offer keynotes.

Contact me for a free consultation.
