"From Stellar I've deepened my understanding of identity, relationship, and personal and collective empowerment; how to see parts of myself with more clarity and resolve; and how to show up in authenticity and fierce love."
~ Elias Serras
What's another word for coaching?
I've been guiding people through experiences, revelations and growth for almost twenty years. Some people call it "facilitation," especially when it's a group. When it's one-on-one, lots of people call it "coaching." I don't know what to call it; what I do is that we all have a lot of healing to do ~ from trauma, from oppression, from the innumerable ways we humans harm and are harmed by ourselves, each other and the world.
Below you'll find specifics on some of my offerings. My rates are need-based & sliding-scale. If you're interested in working together, get in touch to book a free 45-minute intro session.
Post-capitalist Financial Coaching
A world where everyone has enough, communities take care of each other, and no billionaires exist is not only possible, but closer than it's ever been. For those of us committed to shifting the global economy out of unregulated late-stage capitalism, it can be tough to find financial management strategies and guidance in alignment with our values. After years of struggling financially, I got myself out of debt and into healthy relationship with my finances through some coaching, a few frame shifts, and some fantastic budgeting software. In my financial coaching practice, I guide you through the basics of budgeting & personal money management, support you in shifting and healing your relationship with money, and get you started on the path of not material success, but financial liberation.

Healing Oppression In Relationships
My partner Danny and I offer relationship coaching based in a model of understanding and healing oppression. Systemic oppression and supremacy culture exist not only in the systems of the world, but also at the heart of our intimate relationships. Many of us were born into a culture designed to uphold white-centered patriarchy, the roots of which run deep inside our bodies & ways of relating. As much as we devote ourselves to healing and self-growth, if we aren't informed by trauma awareness and systemic analysis, patterns of supremacy & dominance can easily play themselves out in our closest relationships. In our workshops and coaching, Danny and I support you in moving towards collective liberation in your intimate relationships, sharing our experiences and tools for navigating both the subtle and not-so-subtle ways we've been conditioned to uphold systems of oppression with the people we love the most.
