Embodied Therapy, Coaching, & Education
Hi, I'm Raina.

I'm a somatic therapist, coach, and educator specializing in trauma & oppression. I help justice-oriented souls feel better in their bodies and in their relationships. I believe when we are emotionally resourced and well-connected we create more space for personal and social transformation. I would be honored to share my skills and perspective to help you move beyond just surviving and into embodying your life force.


Licensed Masters in Social Work (Clinical) & Masters in Public Health

Certified Yoga Teacher with a background in health education & coaching

Extensive training in somatic trauma treatment, including Sensorimotor Psychotherapy & Movement for Trauma

Integrative philosophy including body liberation, somatics, parts work


Trauma over the spectrum

(including sexual assault,

medical trauma,

childhood trauma,

complex trauma, etc.)

Anxiety & panic


I want to 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 constantly decolonizing, unlearning, and reprogramming in order to become more human. I am indebted to the lineages of many healing modalities, which are largely shaped by indigenous practices in India, Southern Africa, and what is now called the United States.
