I love working with individuals and groups who want to learn and grow at the intersections of justice, spirituality, and healing. Here are some of the ways I can support you or your organization in that growth. I am happy to customize presentations, trainings, and consultations. My rates are offered on a sliding scale, and either by the hour or by the project. Please contact me for more information or make an online appointment here.

An opportunity to explore a previous or new spiritual tradition in a non-judgemental space. I offer a particular invitation to those who have experienced rejection or harm in faith-based settings, including abuse survivors and members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

Offering guidance for you to create a plan for emotional and/or physical wellness that works for your unique situation. I draw on techniques learned from my own life of managing both physical and mental health challenges.
I offer confidential support and connections to resources for individuals exploring their gender identity or sexuality, particularly individuals raised in conservative religious communities. I also offer support to family members and loved ones seeking to learn how to be a loving source of support.
