I am a parent, a pet owner, a friend, a survivor, a geek, and a nature lover. I have learned that no professional titles will ever reflect all of who I am or my worth. I strive to be human before I strive to be a worker. I identify as Black, Indigenous, Queer and working class allied. Professionally, I have been working at the crossroads of education, justice and community healing for 16 years. I have extensive experience in mindfulness, trauma informed care, anti-oppressive practices, cultural competency, liberatory education and youth empowerment. If you want to know my titles, I hold a BA in Humanities, an MA in East-West Psychology, and a 200-hour certificate in Mindful Yoga through the Niroga Institute. I will earn an MA in Counseling Psychology in May 2022, on the path toward becoming a licensed psychotherapist.
