What people are saying
"Working with Raina to develop services for our students at the UM School of Music, Theatre & Dance was an absolute pleasure! She listened to our concerns with care and helped us design both asynchronous content and a weekly BIPOC Wellness Coaching Group for our students. Raina exudes warmth and a deep embodied understanding of the students' lived experience. I highly recommend Raina to anyone looking to explore their well-being in a meaningful and supported way."
Wellness Initiative Program Manager, UM School of Music, Theatre & Dance
"My organization (a social justice community organizing organization) hired Raina to do a support/healing session after we went through some very difficult challenges that were outside of control. We are primarily a BIPOC organization (88% BIPOC), so it was important to find someone who understood racism and how it impacts our well being. I also wanted to work with someone who understood what the life of an organizer is like and how hard it can be. All this led me to Raina. She was so easy to work with, flexible, kind, and prepared. She held a healing/processing space for our team that was both restorative but also had some really great takeaway mindfulness practices. She also worked one on one with the staff for support sessions. I heard great feedback from our team about their experiences with her. I highly recommend her services for anyone seeking individual therapy, or for groups who are looking to bring in a mental health expert who is aware of race, class, and how impacts our bodies."
