What does your website tagline mean? "Enhancing Personal, Relationship, Professional and Community Change for the Socially Conscious"
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 older woman, a lesbian from way back, a survivor, feminist, a parent by creative means, a community organizer and activist, 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.
In the direct service component of my work, I welcome people who feel outside of mainstream counseling or coaching settings because they have a socially conscious sensibility, are LGBTQ2S+, People of Color and Indigenous people, feminists, engage in “alternative” sexual lifestyles or family or relationship configurations, distrust mental health professionals or authority figures, and/or engage in progressive or radical community organizing, volunteering or policy-making that addresses social injustices.
In the education and training component of my services, I choose to offer workshop topics that are consistent with my sense of social-consciousness, health and well-being. Frequent topics are: white privilege and being a racial ally, political trauma stress and radical self-care, life-work balance, compassion fatigue and burnout, and LGBTQIA2S+ issues.
What services do you offer?
I offer community workshops and professional trainings, individual counseling, psycho-educational support groups, relationship coaching, and wellness coaching.

What trainings and workshops do you offer, and what do they typically cost?
I offer professional CEU workshops on any of the above topics to mental health and social service professionals, medical providers, educators, non-profits, and community groups. 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. 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.
