Maribel es una consejera de salud mental/uso de sustancias, sanadora y trabajadora corporal de ascendencia mixta, que se identifica como mujer, cisgénero, bilingüe (inglés/español). Actualmente reside en las tierras ancestrales de las tribus paiute, wasco y confederadas del pueblo de Warm Springs en lo que ahora se llama Prineville, Oregón, en la región central del estado. (Haga clic aquí para el reconocimiento completo de la tierra). Su linaje incluye antepasados del continente africano, China, antepasados indígenas de lo que ahora es Colombia en el continente sudamericano y España. La educación convencional de Maribel incluye una Licenciatura en Literatura y una Maestría en Ciencias en Consejería de Salud Mental. Sin embargo, la mayor parte de su aprendizaje proviene del tiempo que pasó en la naturaleza, un camino de medicina de plantas bien usado con curanderos de linaje de Perú, así como enseñanzas budistas tibetanas y zen, y filosofía espiritual hindú/védica explorada a través del camino del yoga.  Maribel pasó 15 años aprendiendo y nutriendo el cuerpo humano a través de su trabajo como masajista y a través del camino del Raja Yoga.

Ha pasado los últimos 4 años trabajando con adolescentes, adultos jóvenes y clientes de habla hispana (todas las edades) y familias a través de una perspectiva de consejería de salud mental e información sobre traumas. Estos caminos han convergido para brindar una comprensión más profunda de la interconectividad de los aspectos visibles e invisibles del individuo, así como la interconectividad del ser humano y los sistemas visibles e invisibles de los que todos somos parte. Estas perspectivas informan tanto su trabajo de consejería individual como de facilitación grupal, desviándose significativamente de los modelos patriarcales de sanación y salud mental convencionales, basados en Occidente, y virando hacia un marco de Psicología de la Liberación y formas indígenas de saber y sanar. Mantiene solo los aspectos útiles de los enfoques convencionales que ha aprendido, particularmente cuando trabaja con personas históricamente oprimidas y marginadas. 

Actualmente, Maribel se está sumergiendo profundamente en las mitologías de los pueblos y culturas de todo el mundo y se está conectando con la sabiduría y la medicina que se encuentran en las energías arquetípicas que se mueven y nos conectan con la historia como un camino para la curación. También continúa aprendiendo teorías y métodos para curar traumas desde una perspectiva individual e intergeneracional. Maribel actualmente está contemplando una carrera de doctorado con un enfoque en las metodologías de la Psicología de la Liberación. Ella participa activamente en la capacitación y pronto comenzará un programa de certificación para la terapia asistida por psicodélicos.

MA, LMFT, Integrative-Focused Co-healer

she/her/li

My work values compassion, community, spirituality, creativity, and movement. The work is centered from the understanding that trauma exists and impacts who we are as individuals and communities. Taking a trauma-informed and systemic lens is the center of my work because it continues to be what liberates me in my own wellness and healing. Trauma is held in our body, minds and communities. I center these areas of focus to help move through the trauma we carry individually and collectively. As a systems therapist, I take a perspective and worldview that acknowledges that we are a part of communities that is centered around relational dynamics and a part of an ecosystem that centers Nature. Understanding our attachment styles in relationships and our sense of self is beneficial to how we heal in relationships. The systems we are a part of on a macro and micro level are important to healing in collective ways and acknowledging how trauma is maintained.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Oregon and Nevada. I completed my master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy and currently I am in a Doctoral program for Marriage and Family Therapy. I received further education at Portland State University to provide therapy for the foster care and adoption population. I am an active member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy and the National Association of Black Counselors. I have experience working with individuals, families, couples, and parent/child dynamics, and specialize in working with adoptive families, especially within transracial adoption. I offer consulting to organizations and programs seeking clinical training as it relates to Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. I also work as a university supervisor at Oregon State University, offering supervision and professional development to clinical interns in the Professional Counseling graduate program. As part of my values in collective community engagement and engaging in spaces where accountability, growth, continued education, embodiment practices and relationships are cultivated, I am a regular member of the Therapy that Liberates community, founded by Shawna Murray-Browne and a member of a collective body of BILAPOC wellness practitioners in Central Oregon.

FÁTIMA CASTRO RODRÍGUEZ | FÁTIMA'S LUCECITA BIRTH SERVICES
Birth Keeper

she/her/ella

Screenshot_20200624-153555_edited.jpg

Fátima is a first-generation, queer daughter of Mexican parents. She was born and raised in Southside Chicago in a traditional Mexican household. Fast forward 26 years, she now resides on the ceded lands of the Northern Paiute, Wasco, and Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, also known as Central Oregon, where she has built beautiful and genuine relationships with many people in her community.  Fátima became passionate about birth keeping when she attended a close friend’s home birth, while still completing her doula training summer of 2021.

She second handedly experienced the great power, magic, and essentially the portals a mother/parent goes through when giving birth. While diving into her own ancestral healing, she also discovered that her great grandmother was a healer/birth keeper in her community as well. She took that not only as a sign from Spirit, but as guidance from her ancestors to help usher life into the New World. As a traditional birthkeeper, Fátima’s values are rooted in community support, decolonizing birth through reproductive and social justice, reclamation of ancestral traditions and wisdom of her

lineage [Mestiza], and the continual advocation and support for ALL historically oppressed humans in sustainable and nurturing healing.

In her own personal life, Fátima has worked towards understanding how trauma affects all individuals through embodiment practices such as yoga, breath work, and tending her own mental health. She works from a trauma-informed lens which centers on dismantling systems of oppression, patriarchy, heteronormativity, and white supremacy, not only in our public institutions, but the programming that has been embedded in every being.

Aside from working with mothers and parents in her community, Fátima holds space for many. In the past, she has held space through working with troubled youth in a therapeutic setting and has worked in the low-income public school system creating a safe space for youth to experience joy through recreation and art. In her spare time, she likes to play outside and connect with Mother Nature, spend quality time with her loved ones, snuggle with her cat and a book at hand, cook and share nourishing meals, and also tend to herself through self-care rituals.

AHLAY BLAKELY | HEALING AT THE ROOTS
Song Carrier, Grief Tender, Community Organizer

Healing at the Roots is a portal into the amalgamation of trauma-informed communal grief work, politicized healing, community singing, reclaiming witch identities as ancestral pathways & re-enchanting white culture as abolitionist, anti-racist, anti-colonial and anti-oppressive practice. This is one of the ways Ahlay (Jewish/Scandinavian) stays accountable to their ongoing commitment to breaking cycles of intergenerational trauma both caused and endured by their ancestors, while also recognizing the compounded harm we have yet to collectively acknowledge so we can begin to transform it. Ahlay is a descendent of the uprooted and rootless ones and she is a commitment to re-rooting & re-sensitizing her people through culture building and re-viving her indigenous ancestor's cosmologies through re-membering what was meant to be forgotten. 

One of the ways we do this is through Grieving Embodied White Supremacy.
