My approach is informed by my studies in restorative justice practices, Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychology & Process Work facilitation. I have trained in conflict mediation, social justice frameworks & anti-oppression modalities. To my work, I bring five years of professional experience in operations & people management.
Restorative justice is a philopsophy of approaching conflict and community building that centers needs and relationships. It is the opposite of a punitive and shaming approach to addressing harm. Process Work is a method of using awareness in service of the process that is wanting to emerge for a group, couple or individual, facilitating a relationship between what is more known & lesser known, and finding meaning & medicine in conflict & disturbances. Hakomi is the assisted self-study of one's somatic experience using a state of mindfulness in order to access deeper feelings, the nuances of our lived experience.
My facilitation style is always infused with humor, creativity & play, incorporating elements of visual art, movement, improv and storytelling. I wish to facilitate change that is sustainable, aligned with justice and in service to emotional, social and spiritual healing. I seek to create spaces that support deeper levels of connection and mutual understanding.
