Just being alive can be activating these days. We interact with systems of oppression, environmental destruction, the forces of capitalism. Not everyone has access to therapy, and therapy is generally centered around white ideology and world view.
I believe in therapy. The healing that we do on an individual level can have a ripple effect. Therapy can heal complex traumas from the past, setting people free from unhealthy patterns.
My focus is on relationships, which have the potential for deep healing. When home becomes a sanctuary, the world looks safer as a result.
Some personal facts: I'm queer and married. I love to bike, hike, dance, act and see theater. I lead a weekly drama therapy group with incarcerated folks in Tracy, CA.
