I am a Black and Latina Psychologist and Psychoanalyst. I am interested in working with young people and adults who had suffer psychological stressors in your life and are looking to find ways to release tension and live in harmony with yourself and others. I use material from daily life and unconscious life to achieve balance in your life. Some of the unconscious techniques I use are: dream work, sand-play, active imagination and stories. Life is a precious treasure and we can find meaning and purpose in the depths of pain. I am willing to accompany you through your path.

Ancestral psychotherapy supports Black , Indigenous, People of Color, LGBTQIA+ to reconnect with their power, reimagine their sense of self worth, restore their ability to trust in their own inner wisdom and resource their ancestral resiliency.
Do you experience a constant and unyielding inner critic that points out every mistake and every flaw you have. Do you often feel like an imposter—not good enough and unqualified? Like you, my clients are people at the top of their class, leaders in their career, recognized creators, yet they feel unaccomplished and undeserving. They describe many moments feeling panicked and alone in their feelings. Their anxiety causes them to overextend themselves to get validation from others. They experience cycles of burnout and depression. They put their own needs last—every time. They find it hard to say no and practice healthy boundaries.

As a Christian, middle-aged, African American woman, I bring my life experience of survival, trauma, and victory to the sessions with clients with compassion and honor for their own life experience while gently opening up space for self-reflection and healing.
I work with clients at my office in Berkeley near the Ashby Bart Station. I prefer to work with a client who will come to sessions even when it is challenging to do so and allow the therapy relationship to open up space for safe exploration of the realities of life, ways to cope with reality, and improve spiritual and mental strength. Therefore, my client would demonstrate commitment to the therapy relationship, whether it is for brief therapy or long-term work, by doing the work necessary to understand the self and make necessary life decisions in order to maximize the availability of life energy.

As a Multiracial, Black , Queer, Disabled Woman, I hold a strong relational and cultural lens in my practice. I view behaviors and trauma through the foundation of who you are; in relationship to one's self and others. Identity and culture impact how we walk through the world, and how we heal through it. I also hold a strong lens for tapping into your inner child, healing childhood wounds and pains. What unmet childhood need is blocking your healing? Let's explore, and reclaim your sense of safety and joy together.

I am a Black , queer therapist and first-generation product of an immigrant, multigenerational family.
Life can be complex. Often, we can find ourselves stuck, lost, or desiring something we can't put our finger on. I'm with you. Therapy is your space. Your space to say the thing you've been holding back all day, the place where you don't have to be perfect or say all the right things. I believe in helping clients meet their goals, be able to generate meaningful insight around the "why" and "how" of being human, and to explore what it means to be unapologetically themselves. Life can be complex, but it is also a series of stories. Some of these stories are sad, lonely, and others are a wild, exciting ride. I'm excited to meet you.

With expertise gathered from years of experience across borders, timezones and cultures, I assist diverse clients from varied backgrounds in navigating their unique, in-betweenness/intersecting identities, including All (multi) Racial/Ethnic/Cultural Groups, Asian, Black / African American , Hispanic/Latino, 1st, 1.
I work with men and women who are seemingly high achievers but deep down inside feeling disconnected, lost, alone, even if they are in a relationship, and often feeling like they don't belong. I treat anxiety and depression through examining deep-rooted inner conflicts, shame, guilt, insecurity, childhood trauma, family of origin, as well as unconscious cognitive distortions and unhealthy coping mechanisms that manifest in perpetuating self-doubts/disappointments, relationship difficulties, and career dissatisfaction. It often gives me great joy when clients with prior therapy experiences find progress in our initial work together.

My ideology is inspired by the juxtaposition of American narratives, originating from the Deep South and Urban Midwest. Growing up in a Pro- Black , Christian Baptist home I learned how gender, sexuality, and white supremacy can greatly affect our culture, happiness and well-being. Early exposure to the mental healthcare system taught me that oppression can be as multi-layered and intersectional as the oppressed, and diagnosis will continue to be an act of oppression if it ignores cultural context, societal phobias, and systemic oppression. For a great number, our mental health is a representation of how we survive our social climate.

You don’t have to look like someone with an eating disorder (ED) to have one. Eating disorders not only affect: young, white, cisgender, middle-upper class women; it affects all races, genders, and socioeconomic backgrounds. As a QTPOC, you have likely been discouraged by stereotypes, lack of access to treatment, and lack of support within the ED community. If you are ready to change, but unsure how. If you feel alone, or doubt your capacity to change. You are NOT alone. I know how difficult the first step can seem. Know you are not walking this path alone. We will walk together on your journey to true transformation.

With mindfulness and compassion, I help my clients transform their limiting beliefs, access their strengths, and move toward a greater sense of wholeness and ease. Couples describe my work as insight-oriented and free from blame or guilt. Colleagues and clients have called my style authentic, direct, and compassionate. I always try to provide warmth and a quick sense of humor. I believe remembering the past is helpful to the extent it helps heal, and so while we’ll be attentive to the past, our focus will be on how its legacy is impacting your life now. Our work will be relieving of past pains and also bring more calm and joy.

You made the first step! You have listened to that already wise part of you that knows now is a good time to reach out and be supported in a way that is tailored just for you. Are you finding yourself struggling for emotional wellbeing or balance, are you noticing that you are reacting in ways that aren’t working for you, in life, in relationships, even in the choices you are making? Are you finding yourself wrestling with anxiety, and feeling paralyzed in fear? Are you feeling as if there is no safe corner in your life where you can take in a breath and stop the daily push to produce?

To live in America in 2021 is to experience some sort of emotional stress and overwhelm. In the age of information, we are exposed to trauma on a daily basis. The messaging that the world gives us is "do more" and "work harder". We rarely are encouraged to prioritize ourselves, create and enforce healthy boundaries and make time for the things in our lives that bring us peace. If you've been "grinding" and you are now looking up and asking yourself "what is this all for if I'm not enjoying my life", then you are in the right place. I can support you in doing the work it takes to achieve your peace!
