As you consider inviting me to support you, individually or in community, here are some things you may enjoy knowing about me. I’m also open to your questions about my background and my work, as it serves your own learning and growth.
As the author of five books on relationships, spirituality, and social justice, I’ve spent 20 years exploring how we can transform our cultural and relational pain into lives fully and joyfully led.
Inspired by and extensively trained in a rich lineage of nonviolence, restorative applications of empathy, and diverse spiritual traditions, I hold personal healing and social/environmental healing as inextricably linked.
My work illuminates the myriad unconscious ways we’ve all internalized and perpetuated the domination culture in which we live, and then lovingly supports you in transforming the negative effects of that culture from the inside out.
For many years, I held my interest in social transformation and restorative justice, my work as a writer and cultural critic, and my personal healing work as parallel avenues. Several years ago, these pathways of life energy converged into a resoundingly compassionate approach to personal and collective healing I call Restorative Empathy.
Offering loving support to individuals and communities is one of the greatest sources of joy and inspiration in my life.
Ultimately, my approach enables you to choose strategies in which everyone’s needs matter, from a place of genuine empathy for yourself, your loved ones, and all of humanity.
