“This training has made a huge difference in my confidence level in facilitating, and we are only halfway through.” ~ 2020 participant
Whether talking about sex, race, birth, JustBodies, or sustainability, whether I am facilitating workshops with incarcerated adults or quirky teenagers in the woods, whether I am making art or body-moving, my actions are guided by liberation, solidarity, and a passion for cultivating playful comfort-zone-stretching interconnection with self and others. A lover of the paradoxical and paranormal, ancestral wisdom and asymmetry, my suburban desert born-being strives to bring water to the deserts, metaphorical and literal. A midwife of transition, as well as a multitude of strange and creative projects, I am currently finding solace in the process of creative liberation through CLN.
My work in the world is dedicated to the future generations, that they may be born into bodies liberated from intergenerational trauma and celebrated for their unique expressions of identity, sexuality, and desire.
I am a Somatic Sex Educator and Embodiment Coach, co-founder of JustBodies, and a past member of the CSB teaching team at the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in San Francisco. I am trained as a Doula (Birth Assistant) and draw wisdom and skills from my experience with experiential diversity education, anti-oppression work, non-violent communication, direct action, restorative justice, ritual, and expressive arts therapy.
I have a BFA in Photography with a Sociology minor from Arizona State University; I equally value the education I have gained from world travel, direct action activism, co-parenting, permaculture design trainings, and my ongoing practice of decolonizing the body through dance, play, and irreverent mindfulness. As a gender fluid queer person of European descent raised in the concrete covered desert of Arizona — Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation, Gila River Indian Community, and Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community Territory — I am rooted in solidarity with all my relations and grounded in an ongoing search for pre-Christian/preColonial ancestral wisdom.
