Reiki Master

Liz Davis is a Reiki Master who joined the Healthy Living Movement in 1998 when she went from 400 to 220 pounds over two years.

SADIQUA IMAN

Energy and Bodyworker

I see massage therapy as an essential part of holistic health. In my practice I focus on raising awareness of the body, mind, and spirit connection through a combination of intuitive body and energy modalities. Massage to me is an artform just like painting and poetry. I am inspired by each and every one of my clients to collaborate on creating their best self. When I am not massaging you may catch me teaching, performing, or facilitating workshops.


Special Interest: womyn, gender non-conforming, lgbtq, sex positivity, dancers/athletes, anxiety and depression.


Modalities Practiced: Cranial Sacral Therapy, Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Pregnancy, Swedish, Hot Stone, and Chakra Balancing.

DALISHA PHILLIPS, LMCHA

Art Therapy

My practice is rooted in the notion that through art-making, creativity, and a dynamic therapeutic relationship you can begin to explore your understanding of your ideal self and its juxtaposition to your worldview. Through the alignment of how you believe others see you, how you wish to be seen by others, and how you see yourself you are capable of evolving and actualizing that optimum entity. It is my role to accompany you as you embark on the odyssey that is self-discovery and transformation through art and language.

KATRINA M. SANFORD, PSYD

Co-Founder/Doctor of Clinical Psychology

Dr. Katrina Sanford is down for smashing the patriarchy, sexism, and racism through self and community healing. She is a Clinical Psychotherapist with specialties in Trauma and Sex Therapy. Dr. Sanford uses her trauma informed background to challenge social injustice issues for her clients and community, particularly racially induced inequities. Dr. Sanford spends much of her time helping her clients decolonize their minds, bodies, and souls from Eurocentric ways of being that continue to negatively impact our whole selves. Becoming our better selves involves breaking down the historical inaccuracies the dominant culture has created about our people and being open to working through the intergenerational traumas/barriers that have left our people with a lack of understanding of how truly amazing we are. I'm here to help you develop the self-love that is necessary for true growth and evolution in this life.
