I am certified through the Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute as an SEP and trained with Steve Hoskinson, founder of Organic Intelligence. I am an OI Mentor and Coordinator for the Human Empowerment and Resiliency Training (HEART), which involves mentoring students through the personal and professional process of learning and integrating OI's principles. My professional background is in Bodywork and Massage Therapy (CA cert. #58496). Since 2008 I have practiced Deep Tissue Therapy, Shiatsu, Acupressure and Medical Qigong. I am in ministerial training in the Lohan Order of Buddhism with my teacher Fa Jun Shakya. My personal interests include the study and practice of feminism, body trust, body and weight neutrality, deep ecology, decolonization and indigenous perspectives, Chinese and Indo-Tibetan Buddhism, art and the creative process, social justice, Nonviolent Communication, conscious partnership, and a love of music and dance. I identify as queerfemme and see many LGBTQ+ clients. Compassion, wisdom and skillfulness is my aim.

$75 - I tend to struggle financially and/or work in customer service or a career with relatively low wages. It is a big deal for me to budget this amount of money for personal healing.

$110 - My income is secure, I am able to go out to eat regularly, spend money on new projects and hobbies, etc.
