I believe he is still accepting new clients at this time, though please note he is not in-network with any insurance companies.

Regan Goodrich: Regan is amazing. She is personable, compassionate, and shows up so authentically. She can provide massage, acupuncture, cupping, and support using herbal medicine. And what's amazing, is she accepts most major insurances including Pacific Source!
CottonWood Tucson: I had the privilege of visiting Cottonwood Tucson for a Professionals Weekend. I was extremely impressed by their staff, immediately noticing their fund of knowledge, compassion, and employee retention. The landscape and campus alone is incredibly healing in its beauty. You have many choices when it comes to residential treatment and it is a big decision. For any of you struggling with addiction and/or mental health issues I highly recommend Cottonwood Tucson. Some standout features include equine therapy, the family program, art therapy, recreation therapy, and individualized treatment.

My Grandmother's Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathways to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies by Resmaa Menakem: In this groundbreaking book, therapist Resmaa Menakem examines the damage caused by racism in America from the perspective of trauma and body-centered psychology. The body is where our instincts reside and where we fight, flee, or freeze, and it endures the trauma inflicted by the ills that plague society. Menakem argues this destruction will continue until Americans learn to heal the generational anguish of white supremacy, which is deeply embedded in all our bodies. Our collective agony doesn't just affect African Americans. White Americans suffer their own secondary trauma as well. So do blue Americans—our police. My Grandmother's Hands is a call to action for all of us to recognize that racism is not only about the head, but about the body, and introduces an alternative view of what we can do to grow beyond our entrenched racialized divide.
