I offer private client services for fitness/wellness, physical therapy (post-rehab continuum of care), yoga (adaptive, meditative, and/or exercise oriented), reiki, shamanic practice, and sexuality counseling. I offer group events as well - WILD Woman Project circles with a wild-crafting focus, yoga, exercise, death cafes, lunch and learns, group sexuality education and counseling, group creativity facilitation spaces, and family nature meetups.
"In Wildness is the preservation of the world" (-Thoreau)
This website, along with the event offerings, are my attempt to return to the sacred and facilitate healing, connection, and wellbeing at the individual and societal level, to reclaim instinct and a deep connection to place, community, and Earth. To return to WILD-ness, authenticity, and soulfulness.
"It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society" (-J. Krishnamurti)
Social justice (by way of naming and dismantling systems of oppression) inspires and informs all of the work that I do and is my ultimate professional purpose. I live and work in the suburbs of Chicago and recognize that my place of practice and life is on land stolen from the Kiikaapoi, Peoria, Kaskaskia, Bodéwadmiakiwen (Potawatomi), Myaamia, and Očhéthi Šakówiŋ (see https://native-land.ca/) and worked by stolen and enslaved people. #DoNotForget Everyone is Beloved, All Bodies Are Good Bodies, and Life is Not Binary. (Also, The Climate Crisis is real.) Our best medicine is each other; that's all we truly have.
My professional offerings are broad and varied, to meet my unique gifts and interests but also to reflect the complexity and potentiality of the biopsychosocial model of the human experience. I don't pick a lane, because I don't fit into a lane and neither do my clients. You deserve to work with someone that can see you and your needs beyond a fine-tuned, hyper-focused, niche, issue in the tissue approach to maximize assisting you reach your well-being goals.
