  • Speaking

    The opportunity to show up wholly and vulnerably through speaking and sharing my truth with others is a profound privilege that I relish deeply. My approach to speaking engagements is story-centered, which simply means that I offer authentic anecdotes from my own life to inspire and invite reflections, connections, healing, and expansive perspectives on liberation.

  • Facilitating

    One of my greatest joys is to be in community with others. I love inviting authenticity and stewarding the raw energy that springs to life when people feel seen and heard by one another. In facilitating group processes, day-long workshops, or extended curriculum, I prioritize vulnerability and connection by scaffolding new insights through identity interconnections. In exploring commonalities and differences between groups that are purposefully diverse or problematically divided, I encourage expansive, affective-relating that encourages empathy and allyship.

  • Connection Coaching

    Central to my philosophy on life, work, and love is the belief that connection is healing. Unfortunately, we live in a highly uncertain time, when much of how we previously connected to and related with one another has been disrupted. Now more than ever, we need new touch points for connection. We need innovative opportunities to authentically show up and dial into deeper relationships with our whole-selves. My approach to coaching is grounded in a commitment to being fully present with each person along their search for healing and connection.

    Story-Centered Pedagogy

    Stories have the power to connect, inspire, and heal. By sharing parts of my story, I hope to embolden others to reflect upon, learn from, and make-meaning of their stories.

    Connection is Healing

    Authentically connecting to our true selves is healing. As we heal, we give those around us permission to do the same. Just as all oppressions are interconnected, our healing and liberation are also interconnected.

    Identity Interconnections

    Inviting affective-relating across and between diverse lived experiences, I engage identity interconnections to facilitate personal growth, foster allyship, and advance social justice.

    Education for Healing & Liberation

    Informed by bell hooks and Paulo Freire, I have witnessed the power of education to heal and liberate. It is my privilege and joy to share examples and strategies from my own work, encouraging others to engage in this transformative approach to education.
