I am decolonizing. I am on my own journey and working to help others find their own paths toward decolonizing their lives.

I am a trauma coach. I am a master’s level community counselor who has moved toward coaching to support those healing trauma histories. I work to create inclusive safe spaces for BIPOC LGBTQ members.
