Being InTouch

You are welcome here


In Response to COVID-19:

We have entered unprecedented times. With the emergence of COVID-19, almost all of our relationships have changed and we are being pushed to meet this moment in new and creative ways. It is also a collective trauma event that is pushing us to the edges of our capacity as we cycle through trust and panic, rest and rage.

In response to this global pandemic and the social restructuring that is sure to follow, I have moved all of my client work online for the foreseeable future. While it is less than ideal to provide therapeutic counsel over distance, I feel confident that even in this format, the work remains potent, essential, and accessible.

In an effort to provide mutual aid mental health services, I have expanded my sliding scale from $0 – $150/hour. If you are able to pay above the base hourly rate of $100/hour, your contribution will enable me to take on additional clients who cannot afford to pay. You may also directly sponsor someone for support. For more information or to set up an appointment, please contact me directly.

Finally – I have had the honor to partner with LOAM to create a small book of practices in response to COVID-19. Place your pre-order HERE!

Enjoy a big breath. Take a look around. Get InTouch.

tayla shanaye (she/her) is an embodiment counselor located in occupied Anishinaabek lands of so-called Marquette, MI. She works with people to alleviate stress, reduce chronic pain and tension, negotiate and liberate the bodymindspirit from the trappings of trauma, elevate relaxation, deepen a sense of Self, purpose, and spiritual connection, and find a lived experience of well-being. Through embodiment and connection to the Earth through meditation, herbalism, and ritual, she is working toward offering her own flavor of healing. She is a student, a teacher, a friend, a mother, a sister, a daughter, a lover and a child of the Earth striving for deepened connections to place as the starting point for deep healing and transformation. She hopes this work will help to free our society from the trappings of colonialism, dysfunctional patriarchy, capitalism, corporatism, misogyny, white supremacy, and narrow-mindedness. She offers herself to this work in the service of all life.

She is also contributing author to the North Atlantic Books 2018 release: Diverse Bodies, Diverse Practices
