Nicole's Pledge


I live in Santa Cruz, which is on traditional Amah Mutsun Ohlone land. I donate to the Amah Mutsun Land Trust to acknowledge this history and the Ohlone community. If you live in Santa Cruz, I encourage you to do the same: 


I pledge to use my power of psychotherapy to support healing, empowerment and justice for humans, non-human beings and our Earth. I am here as a co-conspirator with people of color, indigenous folk, LGBTQ+ friends and the plant spirits on this spectacular Mother Earth, on the journey of empowerment and freedom of body, mind and consciousness through the medicine of witnessing, mirroring, and reflecting.
