As a Black gay clinician with intersectional identities, my goal is to reduce barriers and normalize therapy.
It's okay to ask for what you need. Let's take the time to center your goals and explore new strategies and resources to accomplish them. Together we will identify roadblocks, examine patterns, and reauthor a story that aligns with a new vision. Change creation does not have to be limited by your past or present experiences. These experiences can be helpful to inform change.

I also use culturally relevant techniques to cater to those of black, indigenous, and ethnic decent.
You may find yourself struggling with the demands of society along with personal stressors and past trauma. I specialize in providing supports for people of color who strive to take back their emotional and mental freedom. With support, one can build resilience after experiencing tremendous grief and trauma. My goal as your counselor is to provide support as you garner skills to face difficult roadblocks that might otherwise seem too overwhelming to tackle or unconsciously hidden. Some of these obstacles can cause stress, anxiety, anger, depression, shame, insecurities, and conflicts with relationships.

As a Black biracial woman I understand the impact of lived experience on our healing.
My clients find me when they realize the way they've been managing and coping isn't working anymore. They tend to be the high-achievers. The helpers. The problem solvers for others. But they don't feel like they have anyone who they can go to for support. Others may not know the intense overwhelm, worry, doubt, and dissatisfaction my clients experience. For folks of color the intersections of race and culture play a significant role in their experience of these concerns.
