Sassafras Healing Arts
My practice is based out of the People’s Movement Center as well as my home office. I practice under a healing justice framework. As someone with white settler ancestry & who identifies as a non-binary, queer, chronically ill witch, this means uplifting femmes, queer & trans folks, black folks, indigenous folks, people of color, and folks with disabilities as healers, as well as to center these communities in my practice. I strive to bring my highest self to my work & I meet my clients where they are at: respecting their decisions, honoring their intuition, & working to co-create a container for them to see themselves as the powerful healers & magic-makers they are. I strive to bring an ethic of communal care to my practice, recognizing that we cannot “self care” our traumas away, & that we do not survive alone. I have 13 years of experience of working with survivors of sexual and domestic violence as an advocate, trainer, and program coordinator. During those same 13 years I have also been a reproductive justice organizer.
In December of 2018 I will graduate from the University of Minnesota School of Nursing’s Master of Nursing Program as a Registered Nurse, after 3 years of prerequisites, graduate school coursework, and clinicals.
I offer my services in person as well as through phone or Skype.
