reaca Ní pearl (they/them)

I love connection. Life is all about connection. 

Healing is all about connection. 

I love connecting to people, helping people connect to each other and – above all – helping people connect to themselves.

Alice (she/her), my constant companion, is a nationally certified therapy dog with aims to become certified for PTSD some day. She joined us during the global lock down of 2020 and so by circumstance has become more of a family therapy dog than professional. Though she loves her pack, consisting of 2 adults and 4 kiddos, her favorite spot is cozied up in my virtual office on her very own psychotherapy couch.

A golden doodle with curly red hair, stands on rocks with her tongue out. Behind the dog, a non-binary human stands on rocks wearing a hat and sunglasses. The have their mouth in an open-mouthed smile and a full sleeve of tattoos can be seen under their tank top. Two small children can barely be seen sitting down in the background.

Healing as Activism

reaca (they/them/theirs) is a non-binary trauma therapist with a dedication to helping folx connect to the truest version of themselves.


Offering telehealth since 2016, their practice is now entirely virtual allowing for greater accessibility for historically excluded clients and a personal reduction in their carbon footprint.


Healing from trauma takes place within the context of society, culture & environment. With the right fit and a focus on connection, therapy can help you resolve trauma and attachment wounds; manage chronic mental health conditions such as depression, PTSD, and C-PTSD; navigate the chronic stress and trauma caused by systemic oppression; and find a way to embody joy in a world that often feels unwelcoming to those of us who exist outside of colonialist boxes.


Healing Through Connection is committed to anti-racism as an emergent lifelong processing journey that centers action and change. We recognize, as Resmaa Menakem teaches, that white body supremacy is the sea within which we're all swimming; enabling and perpetuating ableism, ciscentrism, sexism, heterosexism and the 'power over' dynamics which cause so much suffering.


The only way out is through.
