About

I am a board certified psychiatrist who combines creative thinking with evidence based medicine to meet the unique needs posed by each client. As a Black, queer, woman, my lens as a psychiatrist as is shaped by navigating society’s standards as an individual with marginalized identities. **I do not take insurance and I am no longer accepting patients for psychotherapy. I am only accepting clients for medication management and individuals interested in joining one of two groups related to (1) LGBTQIA/Intersectionality issues (2) Identity Accomplices/Allies (Non BIPOC individuals)
While my focus is in helping individuals from diverse backgrounds, I can help if you are struggling with feeling like who you are, is not enough. I can help you manage anxiety, depression, trouble reality testing, questions gender & sexuality, addiction, impact of discrimination, or insecurities too sensitive to discuss with loved ones.
I do not believe that any one solution can address the unique challenges faced by each individual. I customize my approach for each client by applying multiple treatment modalities to be practical for the real-world. As a psychiatrist, I believe that medication is simply another useful tool in the box, not the only useful tool.
