Hi, I'm Raina.

I'm a somatic psychotherapist and coach who helps people embody their truth with confidence and authenticity. 

While my work is trauma-informed, it is also liberation-oriented. Trauma is, by nature, fragmenting. It can cause you to forget who you are, be ashamed about who you are, and feel that you have to hide parts of who you are in order to belong and be loved. As a result you might find yourself conforming to what seems the safest, or even looking outside of yourself for reassurance, advice, and permission.

Contrary to what systems of oppression, intergenerational trauma, and your past experiences might have you believe, you can trust your own values and opinions. You can honor your needs and boundaries. You can find safety and confidence in vulnerability. And you can build relationships that feel mutually supportive.

I work with individuals, couples, non-romantic dyads, and other therapists. I'm based in Ypsilanti, MI and provide therapy to Michigan residents, but I also provide coaching to clients worldwide. 

I would be honored to share my skills and wisdom to help you root into who you are and rise into your vision for your life.

I respectfully acknowledge that the land I live and work on is the unceded ancestral, traditional, and contempary Lands of the Anishinaabeg - Three Fires Confederacy of Ojibwe, Odawa, and Potowatomi peoples. I am indebted to the lineages of many healing modalities I have learned from, which are largely rooted in indigenous practices in India, Southern Africa, and what is now called the United States. I am constantly decolonizing, unlearning, and reprogramming as I become more human.

I send a very infrequent (about twice monthly) newsletter announcing programs and sharing resources (some free, some paid).
