values & land acknowledgement
As a small, white, able-bodied, cis-gender, native-English speaking woman I recognize the privilege and access that I have enjoyed in this lifetime.
I continue to engage in the work of decolonizing and un-settling the ways in which white supremacist/colonial culture lives in my body. I am indebted to the work of Michelle C Johnson, Ilya Parker of Decolonizing Fitness, Resmaa Menakem, angel kyodo williams, and many others for my continuing re-understanding of social justice, equity and inclusion in wellness, mental health, and spiritual communities.
I am a practicing Buddhist and student of depth psychology. I recognize that the interdependent nature of reality means that a failure to excavate our own shadow and to reckon with internalized systemic oppression is a failure to connect with both our true selves and with others whom we profess to love. We are all impoverished in this way, and no systemic change is possible.
I value bodies of all sizes, shapes and abilities and do my best to create practices that are welcoming and affirming to populations that have traditionally been under-valued and under-represented.
I offer sliding-scale access to my online subscription site. I also have a limited sliding scale pricing available for my one-on-one clients, with priority given to BIPOC, LGBTQIA+ and those living with disabilities.
For thousands of years, the land on which I live and work has been the traditional land of many indigenous people, including the Guacata, Jeaga and the Ais; the Taino, Mascogo and Miccosukee, and most recently, the Seminole. I am grateful to be working on this land.
