Cimena and TaNesha have been working together since 2014. Drawn together through a desire for social justice, holistic living, and helping others to develop a strong sense of self worth, the collaboration with Rainfall emerged.
Through somatic (body based) work, trauma informed care, and an attachment based lens, we strive to provide a holistic, integrative approach to mental and physical well being, allowing you find healing in a new way.
Rainfall, in many cultures, is seen as a healer. It is the giver of life; it rejuvenates the earth and humans, it cleanses, and forgives. Rain nourishes and renews.
We at Rainfall Therapy invite you to join our nurturing circle, where our goal is to empower individuals in all stages of life as you evolve and grow, learning to trust, accept and embrace your authentic self.
I help adolescents, adults, and couples to heal from their traumas; to be seen and be known; have an increased pride in themselves; navigate social injustices and be culturally aware of the “-isms” that have generational effects.
Cultivating an environment where healing can take place, I will boldly walk with you to navigate the continuum of trauma recovery. Our work together will be guided through a holistic approach with a center on reality and choice based methods.
I strive to stay humble, aspiring to be a facilitator of hope, healing, and change. I hope that as we work together you can find enlightenment and understanding in the continuum of your mental health journey.
I help empower individuals of all ages to heal from trauma, let go of old relationship patterns, and find connection so they can have freedom, ease, and live authentically.
We often find ourselves feeling lost or not connected to who we strive to be. We feel voiceless and dismissed as though no one cares to listen to our pain. I want to build a safe and consistent relationship with you to find a renewed sense of self. In this space, I want to empower you to embrace your authentic self in the full circle of creation, nurturing, connecting and transforming. As we weave in the principles of mindful living together, I want to help you find the answers that have been inside of you all along as you begin to trust yourself and let go of whatever is holding you back.
I believe in you and want to truly hear you. I want your voice to be heard so you can live as your authentic self every day. Will you allow me to walk with you on this healing journey?
Sometimes our trauma hides who we truly are or who we want to become. We have spent a lifetime attempting to control or predict behaviors (both our own and those around us) that we don't feel safe or free. Our communication style, our habits, desires, even the way we move our bodies, contribute to the managing of our trauma responses.
As we work through our trauma, understand our attachment style in relationships, and create new neuro-pathways to developing healthy relationship patterns, we are learning about /accepting/embracing who we truly are or who we are meant to be. I want individuals who come to our retreats/therapy /coaching to learn to embrace that authenticity and live it fully, in a way that feels safe and genuine.
There are 9 core principles of trauma informed care. These are areas we strive to implement into each interaction we have with our clients. Everyone has choice. Voices are heard and valued. Implementing safety is paramount.
Attachment is built through responsive care and attunement. Attachment that begins in infancy, outlines the relationships that will be carried throughout life. In our work together we will learn about the way you attach and engage with those around you.
We believe in the healing of the whole person. We often work with acupuncturists, homeopaths, naturopaths, chiropractors, nutritionists, and many others in the wellness community.
In this modality, you have a choice and you are in control. We will help you evaluate your relationships, engagements, and other areas of life as you create change.
Relationships are the vehicle to change. We are not meant to do life on our own. However many have been hurt by human relationships. We hope to build a trusting relationship with you to help you on your healing journey
Disparities exist and barriers remain for individuals seeking culturally informed care. We strive to provide a protective, safe, and understanding space for you to heal.
“When we talk about land, land is part of who we are. It’s a mixture of our blood, our past, our current, and our future. We carry our ancestors in us, and they’re around us. As you all do.”
– Mary Lyons (Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe)
We gratefully acknowledge the Dakota, Sioux, Anishinabe, Chippewa, and Ojibwe people whose traditional land we are on today. We acknowledge their ancestors who lived in the Hugo area and were forcibly removed from here. Hugo was the summer land of the Dakota people who harvested wild rice from the lakes in this area. Honoring the past, present, and future Indigenous stewards of this land is one small way that we are working to decolonize and spread awareness of the historical truths.
We value the personal stories and diverse experiences that our clientele bring in our work together. We are honored to be chosen as a safe space to share the historical and systemic trauma that they may have experienced. Driven by a focus in social justice, we strive to empower clients and advocate for their needs in order to serve them in a holistic manner. Core values that we hold as a business include having individual choice, dignity, respect, and self determination. We have had experience working with a diverse variety of clients over many years, which include veterans; those identifying as LGBTQIA+; individuals with racial and ethnic backgrounds different than self; individuals with physical, developmental disabilities, and neurodiverse processing.
We promote and welcome diversity, where differences are celebrated, acknowledged, and valued. Being aware, practicing active listening, avoiding assumptions, and always learning, are ways that we implement culturally responsive services. We believe that in this life long journey, we are always growing and learning both personally and professionally in our awareness.
There is always space for you here.......
