I am also co-founder of a collective of Black Mental health practitioners based in Paris and continue to promote Art therapy/ecotherapy through other NGO work.
My clients are postcolonial, queer, subaltern, disabled, invisibilised survivors of everyday microagressions or complex trauma. Like my clients I am polycultural, multilingual and attuned to queries on acculturation, multiple social identities, identity shifting, parenting minority or neuroatypical children, intercultural couples, as well as accidental, disabling or climacteric transitions. My clients want to come to terms with their complexities — those invalidated because of primary or secondary socialisation. Exploring symbolic language allows for production of new knowledge of self and self-(re)actualisation. Paris based.

It has always been difficult to exist in the world as a LGBTQ/GNC person, and especially for people of color. Society is finally attempting to pay attention to Black and Brown existence, but maybe that spotlight has reminded you that mainstream cultural values tend to leave non-normative identities left out, unseen, and isolated. A history of trauma and/or mental health issues can further complicate healing and acceptance. Even within our own microcosms, like partnerships, friendships, and relationships, identity can be erased, misunderstood, and dismissed, despite our ability to locate who we are and what we need within ourselves.

As a black therapist, I am driven to build awareness, dispel bias and help eliminate negative stereotypes surrounding mental health. I see therapy as a forward motion, a means of evolving, a way to reach continuously towards a better self. It is my goal to help my clients who are struggling with developing healthy coping skills, eliminating toxic cycles, changing negative behavioral patterns, improving personal/romantic relationships, working on problem solving techniques, reducing stress, setting goals and implementing change. The most important outcome is that my clients are empowered to be their authentic selves.

You don't want to feel beat down, let down, depressed, overwhelmed, out of control, broken or ashamed. But the daily experience of your life being undervalued by society on top of the difficulties of work, relationships, and personal struggles just seems like too much. You feel like relationships won't work, it's impossible to stop circumstances from getting you down, and you can't win for losing. You doubt who you really are. You question the strength within you, the courage you were born with, and the wisdom from those before you.

I strongly value inclusivity, liberation, and respect--values I incorporate into my work by staying centered in a Black feminist and HAES perspective. My clients arrive in therapy coping with trauma, depression, anxiety, and grief. Together, we work not only toward developing healthy coping skills, but toward healing for a sense of purpose, contentment, and peace. Therapy is an excellent place to affirm and internalize a greater sense of self worth and to practice a compassionate attitude toward yourself.

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.
