Jai is my name and is a portion of my given birth name. Choosing Jai flowed. Jai also happens to mean “yes”, “victory”, and/or “celebration” in Sanskrit—all elements of experience that I hope we get to engage while journeying together.
I have created the services you see based on my values and desire to nurture plants, animals, and humans. I hope to support bringing forward the moment to moment inner nature of you, your animal’s, and/or the land you inhabit. I am committed to my own learning as I do this work. I am based out of what is colonized as Denver, CO on land of the Ute, Arapaho and Cheyenne people and I regularly grieve this.
Who I Support
With medicine journeying I work with individual adults ages 21 and older and especially enjoy working with queer and nueroemergent people, folks interested in somatic energy work and interconnection, those at a standstill with other forms of care, introverts and highly sensitive people, and folks who know themselves and need a safe container to let their supported essence and experiences unveil.
With gardening and animal care I enjoy supporting those who appreciate looking into land and animals and life in general from a regenerative perspective that considers indiginous life-ways that once were. I really enjoy being outside and moving my body while learning and growing both plants and myself. I also love giving your furry ones affection and taking care of their needs.

I support people connecting to their internal landscape and the natural world in order to expand individual and cultural paradigms. I want each of us to remember how to really feel, see, wonder and connect. Journeying and gardening are practices that feel innate and continue to lend perspective on who and how I am in relationship to humans, plants, animals, our planet, and the universe.
