Currently, she is a Body Engineer and an Integrative Womxn & LGBTQ+ Health Coach.
As a Body Engineer, she utilizes movement practices and bodywork therapy to help individuals to move, function and feel better in their bodies. She offers body and gender affirming bodywork therapy to address postural distortions, headaches and body compression for trans and GNC folx who chest bind and or have had top surgery. And she provides healing, restorative massages to relieve built-up, gender-related trauma. All of her services are client-led, consent-driven, and tailored to the needs and comfort of the individual.
As a self identified black, queer, MoC individual, she understands the challenges of insisting on respectful and safe healthcare and how it can be a deterrent for many to seek support from health and wellness professionals.
Because of this, she has become an Integrative Womxn & LGBTQ+ Health Coach to support beings to define what their wellness goals are and set actionable steps towards achieving optimal health goals.
