LIVING IN THIS QUEER BODY: PROGRAM INTENSIVE
This unique program intensive is aimed at facilitating connection with other queer people, providing opportunities to witness the felt experiences and perspectives of other group participants which in turn will help you to experience your own personal struggles or pain points in a different light.
The program will span 3 months. We will meet in an intimate group via Zoom for 6 sessions (2 hours each). You will be actively working via journal or other generative/creative projects with the material that emerges for you during this intensive. I will provide videos and journal prompts as well as resources between meetings to keep the material alive.
I am enthusiastic about addressing the absence of treatment options specific to queer and gender non-conforming individuals who struggle with issues such as disordered eating (and nourishment), substance abuse/use, dissociation and distraction as a means to manage the challenges of inhabiting a marginalized body.
At the end of this experience, you will be connected to an enlivening community. You will know much more about how to listen to your body and its narratives. You will likely be able to say “When X happens, I know what my body needs.”
Embedded in the Program Intensive is the option to purchase two one on one coaching sessions.
So there will be 2 options for purchase in the Program Intensive:
Program Intensive = $600.00
Program Intensive Plus Coaching= $1000.00

“Thank you so much for facilitating that space and asking such excellent questions. I enjoyed being with each person and engaging in these questions and searching with queer community. I am taking away a bunch of new thoughts and feeling excited to get and stay curious about the overwhelm.
I appreciate the spaces you’re creating with the podcast and workshops and the way that they offer me a connection and inspiration as I navigate in my queer body. “
“Thanks for finding ways to be very alive in a world that seems confused about whether it wants that or not some days! “
About me as a group facilitator
I am a queer-identified psychotherapist, podcaster and group facilitator who is dedicated to offering perceptive, creative and reassuring support to queer, gender non-conforming, gender-fluid and transgender individuals. I have extensive clinical experience working with traumatized bodies and the subsequent challenges of embodiment. I have found, in working as a psychotherapist the trauma and eating disorder treatment world, that most marginalized bodies hold legacies of trauma. It is my hope to provide an affirming and safe space to explore these legacies and lived realities that queer bodies face on a daily basis.
I have the ability to see directly into the heart of the matter and also welcome being in the presence of deep psychological wounding with grace and compassion, telling difficult truths that need to be spoken, putting people at ease quickly, seeing problems and solutions in totally new ways, finding and sharing humor in painful situations, expressing vulnerability in a way that increases safety.
