Hi, I'm Mallika.
I am inspired and humbled by the human experience. For over 25 years, I have been seeking to understand and be with this experience more fully. This has taken many forms, including working to identify and dismantle internalized white supremacy within myself, my family and my community.
I spent many years living and working in the creative process, playing, writing, feeling and expressing through a number of artistic modalities. This was a rich and deeply nourishing time for me. But eventually, I began to feel that my work was not serving others the way I wanted.
I returned to school and earned my Masters in Clinical Psychology. I began working as a therapist and seeing clients in 2011. I have developed a unique passion for working with clients in and around their experience of motherhood. I continued my education to study and teach from the RIE framework of raising children.
I have pursued my interest in ceremonial rituals, rite of passage, ancestral healing and earth-based medicine through work with various classes, mentors and personal experiences. I am diving deep into dismantling how white supremacy lives within my family and my community. As a mother, this is my biggest area of activism.
I am back from a short sabbatical to work with client's directly in show-term Embodied Therapeutic Art Process. Please click here to learn more.
