Furthermore, I strive to provide compassionate, culturally competent care to all of my clients, especially BIPOC.

I understand how overwhelming the journey towards wholeness can be and I'm here to partner with you in making changes that will empower you to move forward and become your most authentic self.

I center the needs of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), Neurodiversity, and the 2SLGBTQIA+ community.
Each client comes to therapy for different reasons. Your unique challenges, background, strengths, and life experiences will guide me as we collaborate on treatment goals and explore how to reach them. My first task is to practice active listening and nonjudgmental curiosity as we get to know one another. I believe that the relationship between client and therapist is what can provide the space for healing, growth, and improved mental health. Therapists are human, too, and we are constantly learning as we go. This is why I see clients as creative partners, not patients. We are in this unique process together.

Check out our website for more details! I became a therapist because of a void that has persisted for decades. A void that allowed black and brown people to be left to find sometimes inadequate ways of dealing with real mental health issues. As you search you will find very few people that look like me that is in the profession of supporting mental health. This is unfortunate. Although my caseload is hugely diverse, what comforts my clients is I represent what in my field is lacking...a representative from a disenfranchised group of people helping to build up the individual, repairing relationships and making families whole.

It’s hard fighting your thoughts. Some days they feel so heavy and intense that you end up spiraling. Sometimes you don't even know if you can trust your own judgment. It just seems like good doesn’t last and more pain is always on the way. Sound familiar? Are you struggling to overcome toxic self-talk and intrusive thoughts? Are you tired of wildly fluctuating emotions that you can't control? Are your relationships suffering? You wonder, what's wrong with me? Why am I so easily triggered? Life shouldn't be this hard.

It's hard to find a therapist. Especially when you're not feeling your best. I applaud you for getting this far. Now it's time to invest in your relationship with yourself. I know what it’s like to feel alone with your problems. Maybe you have no one to talk to. Or maybe you feel bad making your friends, your family, or your partner listen to your problems again. I know what that feels like, and I’m here. I’m ready to listen. It’s time to let go of anxiety, sadness, frustration, anger, and shame. I want to process these things with you.

Are you overwhelmed but acting like everything is okay? Are you worried that people will see you aren't as put together as they think? I work with "strong" individuals who present as if everything is fine but inside, they're feeling anxious, stressed, or depressed. Hiding behind the “everything is fine” mask doesn't make life easier. Behind your mask you are suffering in silence. Being "strong" when things are falling apart is exhausting and can prevent you from seeking/receiving help during challenging times. Your pain is real. Your feelings matter. You are not stuck in this rut. You can feel better and I'd like to help!
