differentiation-focused support and education to help individuals, families, communities, and organizations create healthy and sustainable cultures.
a world governed horizontally through direct democracy where each individual is empowered and equipped with the necessary skills to navigate and maintain healthy interdependence.
a world where interpersonal violence is rare and dealt with effectively and sustainably.
sustainable, cohesive movements for the liberation of all.
What I do
I offer consultation to individuals, groups, and organizations. My passion is inspiring groups to construct community policies that foster a culture of preparedness for interpersonal violence.
I have supported activist organizations, individuals, families, friend groups, and even higher learning institutions.
Drawing from ten years of experience in transformative justice work I create educational content on issues of transformative justice, healthy relationships, abuse intervention, survivor advocacy, and personal growth. My framework is rooted in Murray Bowen’s theory of Differentiation and I draw very heavily from the brilliant work of the late psychotherapist David Schnarch.
My writing has been used to help ground accountability processes and transformative justice processes with a focus on taking slow, intentional, grounded, and differentiation-based approaches to situations of harm.
I have a Patreon page which I use as a means of creating a mutual aid relationship with my audience. I put little to no bars on the content I release because I want the resources I offer to be available freely to those who need it.
I heartily welcome the generous contributions of one-time donation or regular Comradery (co-operative, worker-owned alternative to Patreon) support by those who see the value of my work and wish to support me back.
I am autistic, nonbinary, a Jewish witch, and a parent.
The co-operative model and direct democratic methods inspire me because I believe they are a cultural avenue to mastering interdependence.
In 2014 I completed a program studying plant medicine, I hold a Masters in Divinity that I completed in 2020 at Starr King School for the Ministry, and my undergraduate education was in social/cultural anthropology with a strong focus in Indigenous Nations Studies, and studies in gender and sexuality.
I’m a Virgo sun, Sagittarius moon, with a Libra rising. My human design profile is 1/3 emotional projector.
I live in Portland, Oregon.
