“I’ve just completed my first line of ancestral healing with Angela, and it was a beautiful experience. When we started, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Each week brought a unique experience with my ancestors and I’m so grateful for the work we’ve done. The word I went back to over and over to describe the experience was “magical.” Over these several weeks I’ve noticed that I generally feel lighter emotionally, as though an invisible weight has been lifted from my shoulders, and I look forward to continuing my healing journey with my other ancestral lines. Angela is wonderful to work with. Kind, gentle, informative, and patient. I can’t say enough great things. My ancestors and I are so grateful for this wonderful work.” —Renee
“Angela’s ancestral healing facilitation is rooted in her compassion and desire to establish spaces of wellness for all beings. Angela’s holding of my ancestral line created a container of healing for myself and those I am descended from. Her commitment to reckoning with how forces of oppression disrupt our ancestral lines is a needed intervention in a climate where so many healers, unfortunately, choose to spiritually bypass. To anyone in search of ways to recover from the toxicity of mainstream culture, I cannot recommend Angela enough!” —Malik, Washington D.C.
“Working with Angela on ancestral lineage healing felt incredibly seamless. I felt her patient and gentle-yet-sturdy holding as she gave me all the space I needed for the process to emerge organically at its own intrinsic pace. I found Angela’s expansive framework for this practice as spiritual, political, practical, therapeutic, and decolonial to be incredibly permissive and generative. It allowed me to navigate many different cords of my ancestral inheritance—whether painful or joyful, murky or vivid, gritty or tender—and feel accompanied with deep resonance and respect every step of the way.
Since beginning this work I have already experienced profound transformations in my relationship with my mother that have felt entrenched for years. Thank you so much Angela for being with me in the gratitude and mourning of my ancestral legacies, and for helping me walk and tend the bridge between past present and future.” —Eliana, Oakland, CA
I always look forward to our sessions, and strongly recommend her services, whether Restorative Empathy or Ancestral Healing. We are working on healing my second ancestral lineage together, and I feel disproportionately more connected to my family background, through both healing intergenerational trauma and celebrating the many blessings those lineages offer. Angela also provides great and timely comic relief 🙂” —PierceD, Berkeley, CA
“A few months ago Angela helped me heal my first ancestral line. Since then my life has been deeply enriched and I am in absolute awe of the sheer magnificence and power of this work.
As a healing practitioner and ritualist myself, I feel very fortunate to have and know the bigger forces and nonhuman allies that I work with intimately. I felt like that was all I really needed, that I didn’t “need’ the ancestors. So I came to the ancestral healing pretty disconnected and, truthfully, not all that interested or engaged since I’ve never had much connection with blood relatives. When I kept hearing about ancestral healing, I finally decided to try out with Ancestral Medicine’s online course, but I felt foggy whenever I would try to do the work on my own—I would pass out and go into what felt like a drug-induced sleep.
After working with Angela, all of that changed. She held such impeccable space—helping me continuously clear that heavy tired energy—that I was able to move forward, connect to my guides, ask the right questions, and build an actual relationship with my ancestors. Her full-on powerful and loving presence coupled with her ability to see all the nuances helped me tremendously! I am always in awe of her ability to see and name things that I just don’t notice. By the end of this lineage, it was revealed that the heavy energy that’d been putting me to sleep was the energy of my unborn child; once they were lovingly ancestralized, I no longer felt that sleepy energy when I came to ancestral work.
This work is full of miracles. I am now healing my mother’s mother’s lineage with the support of my mother, who I haven’t had a relationship with for most of my life. Thank you, Angela, this work has changed my life in surprising ways that continue to unfold! I understand who I am now at a more bone-deep level. I have been encouraging all of my friends and clients to do this work with Angela and you are lucky if you get the opportunity to explore this path with her as your guide! Truly in awe and it wouldn’t have been possible without Angela as my guide.” —Adrianna, CA
