Working with me
I like to describe working with me as like taking a walk in the woods, or among tide pools. Both of these landscapes require a little bit of time to drop in and orient ourselves within, and they have their own kind of pacing that's different than our day-to-day speed under capitalism.
In my group and individual sessions with people, I'm listening for places where we can pause, and look a little closer at some of the details in the rocks and water - noticing what's present together without judgment, moving slowly across the seaweed-covered rocks.
This work is often deep, creative, and intuitive, playful and spacious, and holds space for both the necessary grief work and the joyful possibilities amidst difficulty and constraint. I love holding the thread of expansiveness beyond right/wrong, opposites, and polarizations. I believe that disorientation is a portal - and an often necessary way out of the constraints and compressions of capitalism.

Reflections from people I've worked with
Kali holds a container in which you can be supported and listen to your inner voice and guidance with an anti-capitalist, queer-centered, gentle lens that centers finding and tuning into one's purpose in the collective. Our work helped me understand some of my beliefs around paid work and jobs - how I had internalized messages about that world that weren't character flaws or faults of my own.
Kali creates a space where you feel held. They recognize that career searching is soul searching and there are a lot of factors to take into consideration, a lot of feelings that can come up, a lot that needs to be worked through before clarity and purpose can be found. They offer insight and advice, meet you where you are, make it okay to feel what you're feeling but also challenge and push you where necessary. If you feel confused, at a loss for where to go and what to do, if you feel called to change but don't know how, Kali offers a lovely space to explore these feelings, and to develop a plan, to develop purpose.
Kali has been my guide on a wild and winding journey. I went into the work with a very narrow expectation of focusing on my skills and my desires. Together we went deeper into an embodied space that was much more rich and meaningful. Kali's listening, their sensibility, their wonder, their knowledge, all these things make for a an experience that is so supportive and caring. Our work together transformed my life and helped me understand the depth of what was I grappling with as I sought a new vocation.
