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.

The key to successfully navigating these transitions is retaining your confidence and self-esteem. We recognize when we’re moving through these transitions, so how do we hold on to our individual self, stay strong and trust in the process as life continues to happen? Well, my practice focuses on helping people through these transitions which includes identifying their voice, building the courage to advocate for themselves, and/or crafting strategies to strengthen their relationships/career.

For a long time, you have tried to "hold it together." Perhaps, you may have prided yourself in your ability to power through challenging circumstances with little support. However, you have reached your limit and the stress has taken its toll. You have been struggling to hold things together yourself but, you know you can no longer do this alone. You may wonder, where can I go? Who can I trust? Where can I lay down my armor, if but for a moment, to just breathe, recalibrate, and to refocus. I know I need to prioritize myself but, I am not quite sure how. Is therapy right for me?

Wellness is a way of life and it starts from within. I strive to provide a safe and non-judgmental environment so that the challenging yet rewarding work of self-exploration can be done to aid in lasting change. My hope is that each person finds not only relief from the pressing concerns that may bring them to therapy such as anxiety, depression or stress; but also develops a greater capacity to self-reflect which can lead to deeper self-awareness and the ability to tolerate higher levels of distress.

When you’re struggling to find your place in this white-, cis- and hetero-normative world, feeling able to live fully as your true self can be a challenge. During my years in private practice, I've realized that not every therapist is right for every client. I've specialized in helping clients who are exploring their place on the gender spectrum, whether you’re trans*, non-binary, or somewhere else on that journey of self-discovery, as well as those who are navigating the complex issues related to race and cultural identity. I also do lots of work with anyone who just needs help coping with the issues that come up in everyday life.

After achieving some life goals you're stuck wondering: now what? Maybe you successfully made it through school and into your early career, but it's not what you were hoping for. Maybe you're torn between wanting a relationship and wanting to remain fiercely independent, or you want a partner but the idea of dating is terrifying. Perhaps you're in a relationship but you still feel lonely. Something's missing, but you're not sure what.

I went into this field because I noticed the lack of representation within the Mental health community as it pertains to the Black community. I feel our community (and POCs) could benefit from culturally competent counseling that centers their individual experience and identities. Generational trauma and systemic racism have severely impacted the lived Black experience. Stress levels that are associated with being Black in America, can be linked to health disparities. Lack of representation, mistreatment, lack of knowledge, and misinformation of mental health within the Black community is enough to want to contribute to the change.

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.
