What does your website tagline mean? Enhancing Personal, Relationship, Professional and Community Change for the Socially Conscious
Personally, I consider myself a progressive person of social-conscious. At this point in my career I have the privilege to offer my services to like-minded humans. I adhere to a fundamental belief that our personal, inter-personal and community health, wellness and well-being is nurtured by human connection that is grounded in justice and equity; and generationally harmed by the existing layers of cultural and systematic oppression and trauma.
I try to hold this framework as the backdrop to the work that I do and the life that I live. I am an Irish, German and Roma Gypsy cisgender woman, a lesbian from way back, a survivor, feminist, a parent by creative means, a community organizer, and I hail from a small conservative farming community in Minnesota. These identities, with all of their colliding lessons, inform my motivation and dedication to the services I provide and the communities that I choose to serve.
I welcome people who feel outside of mainstream counseling or coaching settings because they have a socially conscious sensibility, are LGBTQ+, people of color, feminists, engage in “alternative” sexual lifestyles, family or relationship configurations, distrust mental health professionals or authority figures, and/or engage in community organizing, volunteering or policy-making that addresses social injustices.

What trainings and workshops do you offer and do they typically cost?
I offer professional CEU trainings and community workshops from my offices at The Well. Themes include: how to maintain professional and personal sustainable self-care, wellness and well-being. I offer these workshops to mental health and social service professionals, medical providers, educators, non-profits, and community groups. Specific topics may include burn out, vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, political trauma stress, oppression fatigue, and work/life balance. I also offer white helping professionals trainings that address our white and how to actively and professionally address racial justice and equity issues in our work. A few times a year I offer LGBTQ+ relationship strengthening workshops. Training fees vary, depending on the services that are requested and the length of the presentation. I custom-design each workshop so that it meets the particular needs of the audience. I offer a discounted fee to non-profits for the compassion fatigue and burn out workshops. The psychological crisis intervention and radical self-care and oppression fatigue trainings that I provide to street medics and community activists are free of charge.
