People with liberatory dreams need liberatory healing. I offer somatic counselling and bodywork for people who care about social change.
Many of us are dreaming a new world into being. Through our art, our community-building, our dance, our queer relationships and chosen families, our community gardens and environmental activism, our organizing, our anti-violence work, our writing. We are dreamers of social change, waking up as best we can and calling a new world into being. Our dreams and work are urgently necessary.
We need healers who can support us to get where we're going. Healers who can hang in with our social justice-based values, and help us learn the skills our families couldn't teach us and our dominant cultures sure as heck didn't.
Through somatic counselling, you'll learn to love well, building mutually nourishing partnerships and friendships with clear boundaries. You'll also learn to fight well, staying connected to those you love during times of conflict. You'll gather resilience and courage for facing into oppression, in your workplaces, your educational institutions, your homes. And finally, you'll heal, rebuilding your relationship to joy, intimacy, pleasure, and purpose.
What is somatic counselling anyways? We're a smart crowd, we dreamers of social change; if you could think or talk your way out of your struggles, you would have by now. Somatic counselling engages your whole system - your body, mind, emotions, committments, and actions. In addition to talking things through, you'll engage in somatic practices, where you'll sit or get on your feet and track body sensations. You'll learn what your system does when you're scared or triggered. You'll also build new skills that will help you grow the relationships you long for and be present for your lives. When desired, somatic counselling sessions may include somatic bodywork, as a tool to move trauma and open your system to new possibilities.
I work with individuals and couples (including non-monogamous and poly partnerships).
