Let us walk this journey with you….
Today’s societal ills are likely having a significant impact on the quality of your life and may threaten your wholeness, sacredness and inherent worth.
Living in these extraordinary times may feel like it is impossible to heal.
Death of loved ones, job loss, working remotely and social distancing may be wearing you down emotionally and physically. Being isolated from people and not being able to engage in enjoyable events, including dating, socializing and visiting loved ones has raised feelings of loneliness, restlessness and low motivation in many people.
Additionally, your lived experiences coupled with mass media coverage of current societal problems including the global health pandemic, social and racial injustices, implicit bias, gender inequality, immigration issues, food insecurity, pay disparities, state sanctioned violence, healthcare inequities and anti-LGBTQ+ rights have contributed to a significant increase in intimate partner violence, suicidal thoughts, substance use, anxiety, depression and toxic stress.
Although we see clients from all walks of life, we specialize in working with members of marginalized communities, including BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) who need a brave space that centers and validates our experiences.
We strive to decolonize standardized healing practices by honoring both contemporary and ancestral healing traditions rooted in anti-oppressive and liberation focused healing frameworks.
We are here to hold healing space for you.
