Reclaim mothering as wild initiation, with Mother Nature as guide.
Hi, I’m Allison “Allie” Davis (she/her), a maternal mental health ecotherapist and a cis woman of European descent living in O’ghe P’oghe—the original Tewa name for Santa Fe, which means White Shell, Water Place—the unceded territorial lands of the Tewa and Tanos people.
Becoming a mother was a huge awakening for me. Mothering severed me from who I was and pushed me into the in-between of a rite-of-passage I didn’t know was coming… and one I was underresourced to undergo.
It took all my resources (and the guidance of a few matrescence specialists) to root into who I was and who I was becoming as I remembered myself as a part of nature (rather than apart from it) and to incorporate my remembering in the material world of mothering by rewilding my ways of caring for my human family and our living planet.
I now help other soulful mothers channel the transformative power of matrescence, the developmental period of motherhood, to shift from feeling lost, isolated, and overwhelmed, to rooted, connected and revitalized as they become themselves again as mothers. We approach this shift as an opportunity to become more fully alive as a wild member of the living Earth.
You deserve to be held through the initiations of mothering – they are vast. My individual sessions, circles, and podcast community offer paths and practices through mothers’ experiences, that can guide your growth into the mother you envision for yourself, your family, and our planet.
