Message to clients

I stand with women.

I stand with queer, transgender, non-binary folx.

I stand with black and brown people, indigenous and colonized people, and for those not invited to the tables they built.

I believe in deconstruction, reconstruction, non violence and transformative justice.

I stand with sex workers, the kink community and those practicing celibacy or non sexual intimacy.

I stand with folx who have experienced religious trauma, or seek spiritual reconnection.

I stand with folx uncertain where they stand in this funky ass world. 

Together we can nurture your connection to self. I believe in the wisdom of the body, and the power of self compassion. In fostering loving curiosity towards our actions and emotions.
