I provide individual therapy that is warm, collaborative, and tailored to meet the unique needs of each person I see. 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.

We're committed to providing high-quality, culturally relevant mental health services to Black and communities of Color.
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 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.
