About Us

Therapists at Soul Soil Healing aim to partner with clients in healing the soil where their souls are planted and rooted. We provide trauma-informed, decolonial, ecology-informed healing services to diverse communities in the Baltimore, MD area, especially trans/gender-expansive, queer, and LGBIA+ adolescents, adult individuals, couples/polycules & families.  Our therapists are sex positive, kink informed and work with people exploring/practicing ethical non-monogamy.  Our psychotherapists provide highly skilled therapeutic care guided by curiosity and nonjudgmental compassion. We hope to partner with clients to co-create spaces where we feel able to breathe, explore, question, and heal. Therapy can include learning skills and practices to improve daily functioning alongside long-term relational care to heal from traumatic experiences, build resilience, and cultivate thriving as members of healthy social ecosystems. Together, we can uncover, design, and live into lasting solutions.


Soul Soil Healing was founded by Dr. Kris Gebhard and Emily Rizzo in 2023 as part of the Soul Soil Collective. Soul Soil Healing’s values align with Soul Soil Collective’s mission of supporting culturally-competent, evidence-based and ecology-informed holistic healing services including therapy, retreats, and other community programming that invite collaborators to deepen their relationships with and learn from local ecology, land, and the more-than-human world. We work in collaboration with Soul Soil Collective Farm to support access to land held in common for collective land-based healing by individuals/groups who face racist, generational, and classist barriers from access to land stewardship, especially Black, Indigenous, and other people of color, and gender and/or sexual minorities.


We are a workers-owned cooperative. This means that we are a democratic workplace, and company wealth, decision-making, and responsibility is evenly distributed amongst all worker-owners. We value the development, health, and wellbeing of each of our therapists and staff alongside valuing the therapeutic work that we do. We value navigating interpersonal conflict compassionately and candidly. We value radical authenticity, acceptance, creativity, and cooperation.
