Influences + Connections

I am influenced by many. Friends, family, and teachers. bell hooks, Sue Johnson (EFT), Jane Addams, Audre Lorde, Adrienne Marie Brown, Brene Brown, James Hillman, Mia Mingus, and Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha; the early practitioners of Relational-Cultural Therapy (RCT) such as Judith Jordan and Jean Baker Miller; Peter Levine and somatic practitioners, including generative somatics; and many other smart and poised people of various disciplines: all supporters of love, care, vulnerability, strength and transformation.

I practice in a support net with connections and referrals to other important and credible healers: body workers, herbalists, energy healers, physical therapists, other mental health practitioners, and western medical doctors in this area.
