I work with folks experiencing depression, anxiety, or trauma related to society, family, relationships, life transitions, etc. Many of my clients have survived an adverse childhood and are now learning to thrive in the present day. After our work together, the majority of my clients experience more joy, have improved the quality of their relationships, and feel more empowered to move through difficult life challenges. Were your parents or caregivers unavailable or withholding? Is it hard for you to be present during life's successes because of past traumatic experiences? Is it hard to make or maintain healthy relationships?
If you’ve said yes to any of these questions, I’d love to work with you! As a black queer therapist, I hold space for the intersections of your identities and experiences as a QTBIPOC. I incorporate compassion and cultural sensitivity into sessions. I use mindfulness, movement, and trauma-informed EMDR therapy to navigate your most difficult challenges.
You are the expert on your life, and I would love to collaborate with you as you develop healthier mindsets, skills, and insights that honor your needs. Our work together will empower you to build authentic and healthy relationships with yourself, others, and the world around you. Inquire more by booking a free consultation.
