As a Christian, middle-aged, African American woman, I bring my life experience of survival, trauma, and victory to the sessions with clients with compassion and honor for their own life experience while gently opening up space for self-reflection and healing.
I work with clients at my office in Berkeley near the Ashby Bart Station. I prefer to work with a client who will come to sessions even when it is challenging to do so and allow the therapy relationship to open up space for safe exploration of the realities of life, ways to cope with reality, and improve spiritual and mental strength. Therefore, my client would demonstrate commitment to the therapy relationship, whether it is for brief therapy or long-term work, by doing the work necessary to understand the self and make necessary life decisions in order to maximize the availability of life energy.

The tough exterior, not letting things bother you. But recently you’ve noticed a big shift. Suddenly you feel unsure and vulnerable. More and more is starting to bother you.

As a psychotherapist, I feel it’s an honor to be a witness and facilitator to client transformation, resilience, and growth. I believe my perceptiveness, compassion, and holding of a nonjudgmental space allow discovery and observation of patterns that may no longer be helpful. I see my work through a social justice perspective and understand oppression itself as a form of stress and trauma. As a mixed-race, multicultural woman, I honor experiences of being at different intersections of identity. I can relate to experiences of simultaneously belonging and not belonging in different spaces.

Humankind is a varying species, we all had different goals, values, lived experiences, and bear different scars, however we all deserve to be well supported and to feel cared for. During the journey of life there may be times where we feel overwhelmed or unsure of what to do next. The complexities of life can cloud our sight making our journey seem very scary, unclear, and at times utterly impossible.

Many people choose to see a therapist because something in their lives is not working for them and they want to change it. Other times it’s because they are going through a major life adjustment such as ending a relationship, starting a new career, or moving to a new city. Some seek counseling because they experience physical problems such as muscle tension, headaches, insomnia, GI distress, or burnout. Still others desire a professional perspective to help navigate imposter syndrome, career dissatisfaction, or personal insecurities. Whatever the reason, a collaborative partner can support you and help you reach your goals.
