Healing, Coaching, & Support Sessions


Are you struggling with imposter syndrome, burnout, or an inability to embrace your unique leadership that the world needs? Do you wonder if you’re being the biggest contribution you can be and how to be more impactful and influential in your purpose? Do you swallow your voice?  Do you move from coping mechanisms and in survival mode more than a sense of thriving and trusting your magic? Do you desire to move from your erotic in all that you do?

Do you find it challenging to give yourself the same care and attention you give others? Find difficulties in embodying boundaries and moving towards a life that would offer greater safety, dignity, belonging, joy, intimacy, creativity, and connection? Need to release anger or someone to be a supportive witness to move through grief? 

Does fear and anxiety hold you back? Are you often sabotaging or dissatisfied with relationships? Need support to move out of feeling stuck or in a holding pattern / cycle / spiral in relationship? Ignoring the life that is calling you?

Do you wish you could more clearly communicate and find alignment with others? Are you ready to claim your most powerful, intuitive, and authentic self?



I offer embodied healing, trauma-informed, harm-reductionist counseling for individuals,  relationships, and groups of up to 5 folks (couples, polycules, roommates, co-directors, programming or managing teammates, families). Many of my clients are BIPOC organizers, creatives, healers, activists, and movement builders; LGBQ folks and TGNC femmes; disabled and neurodivergent folks; survivors of (sexual) violence; veteran organizers; and those struggling with depression or (C)PTSD. Clients can live   Please note: I have a lot of experience in working with trauma in various communities, but I am NOT a licensed psychotherapist. Above all else, listen closely to the wisdom of your intuition and heart when exploring working with any healer, guide, coach, or therapist to sense if it’s the right fit.

Systemic and interpersonal oppression, violence, and the abuses of power cause trauma. I have seen too many times how trauma creates barriers to moving towards our deepest yearnings and visions for our lives, and the livelihood of our communities. I am grateful to share these healing, trauma release, and coaching modalities that have been transformative in my own healing, learned and deepened over the last twelve years with skilled teachers. I integrate these main healing modalities and approaches to hold you with tenderness, challenge you, help you expand and grow, and create a space where magic and ah-ha moments are found:

  • Processwork / Process-oriented psychology
    • dreamwork (life dreams, visioning, night dream meaning-making)
    • archetypes, role-switching,
    • creative and body-based approaches to grow your highest purpose
    • inviting in the sub-conscious wisdom that is trying to speak with you – including amplifying body signals that are otherwise too subtle to notice.
    • supporting clearer communication, through conflict, in teams and relationships
    • chronic pain and body symptoms and how they may illuminate life patterns
  • generative Somatics (gS) & Somatic Experiencing (SE)
    • helping you feel sensations and feelings in a right-sized way that allow your body and system know it’s safe to do this work
    • accessing and creating more spaciousness for joy and love
    • shifting stuck patterns, creating healthier patterning
    • expanding capacity to feel more and be in intentional action
  • Differentiation and Attachment Theories
    • communicating in ways that are direct to the heart (and the heart of the matter)
    • how to support your relational ‘type’, and the types of those you care about
    • understanding miscommunications and misinterpretations
    • intentional de-coupling and relationship transitions
  • Grounding Practices
    • mindfulness and meditation, breathwork, body or environmental scans
    • spirit-centered song, art practices, or other rituals to support relief from trauma and stress
    • light touches using cosmology, enneagrams, psychodrama, internal family systems, nature and elemental connection
    • using the erotic as your guide

Unsolicited feedback:

I just wanted to drop you a note of thanks. Our session yesterday really helped me. I would love to continue exploring using less words and more embodiment. Ending our session with the cue to remind me to look for pleasure/ joy assisted me in a feeling of closure to our session and continued to help me throughout the day to bring the buzz out of my head and come back to my body. Thank you for leading the process and being flexible and patient to help find something that feels nourishing.

A short story about how Shreya saved my relationship.
When my partner and I started seeing Shreya, we were totally lost. We didn’t know what was wrong, we just knew that things were definitely not working. We wanted them to work; we loved each other. But we were stuck. Our relationship dysfunction had gotten so out of hand that we were completely unable to talk to each other or share the same physical space without spiraling into relational spin-outs, trauma responses, attachment wounds, and nervous system dysregulation. I honestly don’t think people come back from the type of relational dysfunction we were experiencing. It was the kind of thing that leads to very bad breakups and tender heartbreak that never fully goes away. We should not have been able to come back from this. We were too far gone.
It was at this point, from a place of absolute desperation, that we started meeting with Shreya. And it was Shreya, who over the course of about a year, led us out from that place.
Shreya held a container for us in which we could move through some of the most tender, scary, and painful places I have ever been. They held our hands and gently guided us through learning how to stay present with ourselves as we engaged with each other, through learning how to strengthen our too-soft boundaries, and how to soften our too-rigid boundaries, through learning how to slowwww dowwwwn and listen to our bodies, and through learning how to communicate in ways that are both authentic to ourselves and accessible for each other. They showed us so many skills that I not only lacked, but that I didn’t even know existed. We are now not only able to share space, but to co-habitate, not only able to talk to each other, but to communicate our needs and desires with each other freely, effectively, and joyfully. Shreya empowered us with the skills we needed in order to fully experience our joy and love together. It should not have been possible for us to heal from the depths of dysfunction we were experiencing, but Shreya showed us the impossible path to relational wellness anyway.
My experience with Shreya is that they center the liberatory practices of consent, boundaries, communication, and curiosity in their work; that they are an incredibly skilled communicator and teacher; and that they do the work to deeply see, deeply listen, and deeply understand what is happening for the people they are working with. Their guidance has been gentle, patient, consistent, and so loving. They are deeply wise and incredibly skilled at what they do. I am grateful beyond words for the time that we spent together. Shreya showed us the path to our healing, agency, and joy.
Grateful beyond words,

“There is a distinction I am beginning to make in my living between pain and suffering. Pain is an event, an experience that must be recognized, named and then used in some way in order for the experience to change, to be transformed into something else, strength or knowledge or action.

Suffering, on the other hand, is the nightmare reliving of unscrutinized and unmetabolized pain. When I live through pain without recognizing it self-consciously, I rob myself of the power that can come from using that pain, the power to fuel some movement beyond it. I condemn myself to reliving that pain over and over and over whenever something close triggers it. And that is suffering, a seemingly inescapable cycle.” {Audre Lorde, Your Silence Will Not Protect You: Essays and Poems}

Conflict is the spirit of the relationship asking itself to deepen”  {Malidoma Patrice Somé}
