“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” -Audre Lorde
 
Guests:
Brooke Stepp, MS, CN, LMHC
Brooke is a mixed race, black and white, nonbinary, queer femme therapist, facilitator, and community organizer who has been working at the intersection of social justice and healing for most of their adult life. In all the work they do, Brooke strives to be a bridge between liberation and healing work, acknowledging that our personal well being is intimately tied to our collective well being. Brooke longs for a world beyond the public/private divide that racialized capitalism creates, imagining a future where our needs being met are tied to our inherent dignity rather than to what we produce. Brooke has trained with generative somatics since 2010 and finds much of their inspiration from this lineage. When Brooke isn't working, they are dancing in their living room, connecting with their community, hanging out with their 3 perfect and amazing cats, reading communist theory, training muay thai, and going for walks through their neighborhood.
 
Joanna Darsey-Moss, LMHC
Joanna Darsey-Moss is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor who sees the world in systems. This means that she often talks with people about the systems in which they live and how these impact their lives. When people know this, they can further explore their identity and chose to live their authentic selves. She is anti-racist and knowledgeable and affirming of LGBTQ+ identities and all forms of consensual non-monogamy. When she is not working, she is spending time with her bio and chosen family, reading, doing yoga, or dreaming about traveling again.
