Social Justice Education
I work with individuals, teams and organizations to deepen their social justice impact through evidence-based social justice education supported by my training as a therapist. Social justice education provides the opportunity for us to examine the historical, social, political, racial and other systemic inequities that create systemic oppression, while we examine our own individual experiences within these systems.
who i work with
I support people who want to deepen their social justice impact by engaging in the emotional work it requires – without being alone in shame, overwhelm or fear.
My clients come to me feeling stuck.
Despite being dedicated to social change and anti-oppression, this work is hard. When they first schedule with me, they often feel like they’re not moving forward in the racial justice or anti-oppression work they want to be doing. They feel like they’re not being productive or taking enough action. They feel like they don’t know enough.
They aren’t sure where to turn, and feelings of overwhelm and anxiety are at an all time high. They’ve tried participating in training and workshops, either individually or as an organization, but things don’t seem to be changing. They wonder if they’re the only one that feels this way.
Their shame and anxiety engaging in difficult conversations gets in the way of the life they want to lead. They aren’t the kind of friend, family member, coworker or manager they want to be.
They feel like they’re failing at
their deepest values of inclusion,
equity and accountability.
Before coming to see me, they were certain that this would be the same type of consulting they’d done in the past. They worried that the groups wouldn’t be effective. And they were pretty certain that the shame would never go away.
Like my clients, you are worthy of being held with unconditional acceptance as you build the resilience to engage in essential conversations about oppression, power and privilege. To show up authentically, compassionately and with accountability in social justice work is not out of your reach. If you want to deepen your social justice impact, develop shame resilience, and align with your deepest values, I’d love to help you get there.
One-on-one consultations begin at $200.
