i work as an advocate and trauma therapist for people who have experienced discrimination, harassment, bias motivated incidents, intimate partner abuse, sexual assault, and grief/loss.
outside of the 9 to 5 grind i also do some of these things: walk my little pupperoni a lot. im into doing yoga and i teach it too. though not at a studio. i teach it as a form of trauma therapy, helping to facilitate the release of trauma from the body while also increasing capacity for self regulation, self compassion, and self awareness. it's great, i love it. i am working on liking cycling and jogging. though i do neither consistently. i meditate and really value living mindfully. i believe strongly in social justice and anti oppression and this shapes just about all i do. i like to cook and bake and eat yummy sugar free, gluten free, generally whole, clean foods. i am in the process of minimizing my participation in industrialized meat systems. i like boardgames, coffee dates, brunch, bluegrass concerts/festivals, reading books that make me a better person and expanding consciousness through various means. i sing and hum and dance around when i am happy. i cry when im sad. i feel deeply. im quirky and sassy and sweet. living life as it comes, learning new shit every day.
resume writing and job interviews.
typing fast. without looking at the keyboard.
singing very loudly in the car and shower.
listening. inquiry. making intense eye contact.
dancing around my kitchen.
never skipping breakfast. most important meal of the day!
knowing all the lyrics, and when i dont, im really good at making up a sound or made up word that sounds like the lyric. i also make up songs about whatever i am doing in a given moment.
collecting colorful shoes and colorful dresses.
intimacy (with community, family, friends, lovers, my dog, my surroundings, and myself).
self evolution (gaining knowledge, being self reflective, being challenged, expanding mindfulness).
emotion and its authentic, empowering, vulnerable expression (joy, awe, love, sorrow, grief, curiosity, anger, disappointment, fear, excitement, pride, humility, inspiration... all the feels... i am a therapist, c'mon).
the belief that there is beauty in us all. and it is worth being seen, acknowledged, validated, and embraced.
clearly i need more than six things. can ya blame me, I want it all.
also, if you are a-okay with me having one partner already. I am looking to grow my chosen family and welcome more love (in all its forms) into my life.
also, dont let the hetero appearing partnership fool you... i am queer through and through. i am especially attracted to femmes who are something fierce, who are emotionally intelligent, empathetic, who value art, expression, vulnerability, and presence.
