Deanna is passionate about cultivating community connective webs of wellBEing that are alternative to western medical industrial and Americanized wellness culture models that pathologize & individualize the dis-ease of oppression & trauma. Deanna specializes in teaching the tools for nervous system resonance, honing self esteem & agency, dissolving self shame & blame, increasing access to joy, pleasure, resiliency and that rawthentic, unconditional, felt-sense true belonging.
