Once a Month I Send You a Letter From the Other Side of the Dark Woods of Grief

Because, there's no way but through...

monthly musings on the art of navigating grief & trauma

what it means to join my newsletter community

I know it takes a certain kind of courage and care to dive into learning more about grief and trauma. I want to fully acknowledge that and commend you for showing up for both yourself and your community.

Because, as we heal, we help create the conditions for others to do so as well.

Knowing this, I commit to holding space with care, accountability, self-awareness, and respect. I want to honor and give credit to the teachers, bodies of work, and the indigenous wisdom that has informed my own practice in different therapy modalities.

I will tell you more about my background over time, as we get to know each other.

On that note, you can expect:

I love to hear from you.

…So if there are any topics you’d love to hear more from me about or someone you’d love to hear on the podcast, you’re always welcome to email me back & let me know!

I appreciate your presence here. I don’t take that for granted.

And you are never expected to stay. If you should ever need a break from messages, you can find an unsubscribe link at the top of each email.

Yup, I definitely need this...

Uplifting Palestinian Voices
