About

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.
I am particularly skilled at working with individuals who have experienced trauma. While I am experienced working with people of many different backgrounds and identities, I am especially well versed in working with people of color & LGBTQIAA+ individuals who contend with microaggressions and systems that diminish wellness.
Choosing to come to therapy is an incredible opportunity for learning, growth, and creating a life of meaning and fulfillment. I offer individual therapy for adults and elders located in NY or NJ by phone or video conference only. **Please note, I accept only out of network benefits and am not in network with any insurance panels.**
