Physiology is Relational: Complex Chronic Illness
Community Health Resources
Throughout my years of healing my own complex chronic illness, I have collected a lot of resources. I've collected many of them here so others can access them in a simple way.
Of course none of this constitutes medical care and it does not cover each of these complex topics completely, but it does serve as a space where you can access information on various topics that can aid you in your own learning and healing process.
I will add materials as I receive or create them.
I am a practitioner of somatics with a specialty in healing developmental and intergenerational trauma.
My ancestors are Sami, Ashkenazi and Sephardi Hebrew people, Scot-Irish, Western and Southern European, and Native North American.
I hold a master’s degree in Narrative Medicine and multiple certifications in bodywork and somatic therapy. I’ve trained with leading teachers in their fields, including: Anna Chitty, John Chitty, Ray Castellino, Myrna Martin, Daniel Foor, Rita Charon, Sayantani DasGupta, and Maura Spiegel.
I work with the modalities of Prenatal, Birth and Attachment Therapy, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, and Ancestral Lineage Healing and work with individuals and families in-person and online. I have received kehunah (ordination) as a Hebrew ritualist and facilitate life cycle rituals and rites of passage. Additionally, I am a professor of Narrative Medicine and teach in both academic and community spaces.
I was born and grew up on Duwamish land - Seattle, Washington, lived on Lenni Lenape land - Brooklyn and New York, New York for a decade, and I currently live on Ohlone land - Berkeley, California. My pronouns are they/them/theirs.
