Hi! To be honest, therapy can seem pretty daunting, but taking the time to explore your options is a beautiful first step towards prioritizing your mental health. Do you find yourself feeling emotionally drained, overwhelmed, anxious, and/or stuck? You are not alone; these feelings can feel burdensome and extremely uncomfortable. In a safe, supportive, and judgement-free environment I want to help you process and work *with* your feelings towards a healthier, more accepting emotional state. As a Black woman and therapist, I also aim to create culturally competent and culturally sensitive care, because nuance matters.

I went into this field because I noticed the lack of representation within the Mental health community as it pertains to the Black community. I feel our community (and POCs) could benefit from culturally competent counseling that centers their individual experience and identities. Generational trauma and systemic racism have severely impacted the lived Black experience. Stress levels that are associated with being Black in America, can be linked to health disparities. Lack of representation, mistreatment, lack of knowledge, and misinformation of mental health within the Black community is enough to want to contribute to the change.
