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

I'm a somatic therapist, coach, and educator. I help survivors of trauma & oppression thrive in 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

Land & Lineage

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 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.
