What's Self-Care Consulting? (Who is this For?)
The foundation of my self-care consulting work is a lens of intersectional anti-oppression. Racism, Sexism, Classism, Ableism, xenophobia, homophobia and transphobia are all around us, and therefore, impacts our quality of life day to day. What kind of food we eat, what kind of resources we have access to, and what kind of power we have to decide the conditions of our day to day life; are impacted by these oppressive societal forces on a structural and cultural level.
It is my mission as your Self Care Consultant to be able to help you access greater levels of wellbeing and agency to help you resist and thrive even amidst the oppressive forces we all live in. As Audre Lorde says, "caring for myself is not self-indulgence; it is an act of political warfare".
If you are someone that is aware of and living through these forces and/or working in fields that are directly addressing social justice issues, I can help you.
If you are someone living with an identity that society makes vulnerable and oppresses (being a person of color, woman, queer, 1st generation student/professional, disabled, etc), Self-Care Consulting can help you unlock your will to be well, (in spite of a society that often says otherwise).
