One-on-One Work

People work with me because they’re grieving or growing and, most often, it’s both. In other words, I work with leaders, facilitators, and grievers.

I support leaders who are taking on increased visibility + responsibility. I mentor facilitators who want to embed soul + community into their offerings, weaving their work with love, a solid power analysis, and a collective-liberation lens. I work with people experiencing all types of grief including personal loss, collapse grief (ecocide, societal disfunction, injustice), and ambiguous grief.

In consulting, mentoring, and grief work, I provide a loving base — ground — for us to explore what’s happening for you and how you’re being called to deepen. This looks different for different people and often includes heart-storming, somatic practices, ritual, and calling in human and more-than-human support.

RIGHT NOW, MY ONE-ON-ONE PRACTICE IS FULL. Sign-up for my newsletter or check my schedule page to hear about my other offerings.

Group Work & Collaborations

After my sister, Ivy, died in July 2019, I called together a group of my friends who witnessed my grief on an ongoing basis. It radically helped my grief process, deepened our friendships, and solidified my love for group work and community.

There’s so much power and healing in being witnessed and witnessing one another. Throughout the year I facilitate small witnessing groups (3-6 participants) for grief work, interspecies connection, and relationship building. I also hold space for people collaborating on projects (business partners, community groups, and organizational leaders) who want to build trust, accountability, and care into their work together. Join my newsletter list or check my schedule to see if there’s a group coming up. Due to the pandemic, all my group work is currently online.

Community Building & Workshops

I’ve worked with groups both small and large (200+) to build a sense of emotional intimacy and belonging. When we’re willing to ask difficult questions and introduce practices that foster shared vulnerability, healthy community can be built. Essentially, I create safe + brave space for grief and conflict to be expressed, challenging conversations to happen, and power to be restructured. This can be done as a one-time event, series of group gatherings, mediation process, or transformative justice process. I facilitate at conferences, with organizations, and in communities. Right now, due to the pandemic, all my work is online.

Grief Rituals & Vigils

Ritual is any gesture done with intention and emotion. It allows us to express deeply and symbolically. It connects us to the Anima Mundi, or Soul of the world, and allows our psyches to integrate difficult material. Creating rituals requires the courage to be open and listen to something bigger than ourselves — listen to the land, our collective psyches, and our inner-visions. Working together, we can create ritual between the two of us or in a larger community. You can also check the schedule page to see when I am leading or helping with an open community grief ritual or vigil.
