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 an immigrant woman of color, my personal, professional & academic experiences have provided me with knowledge & awareness around issues of race, class, ethnicity, privilege & oppression.
I work with clients to cultivate deeper insight & understanding about the ways in which our life experiences & ways of being in the world impact our choices & behaviors. In working this way I have found that clients feel empowered to make changes to unhealthy behaviors & create proactive coping strategies for managing situations they may not, as yet, be able to change. I draw upon clients' strengths, culture, spirituality & community as a means of facilitating healing, empowerment & change. My therapeutic approach is grounded in social justice principles.

I enjoy working with people who hold multicultural and marginalized identities, including women and BIPOC.
Navigating life's circumstances and challenges can take up a lot of space in our lives. Maybe you are looking for more spaciousness, more time for yourself, or an extra ear to listen to and fully "get" you. Or perhaps anxiety or depression has become a constant presence, and you desire a change and want more connection. Sharing our experiences with others provides an opportunity to feel understood. In a therapeutic relationship, we explore patterns and coping strategies to better form a picture of how we operate in the world. It can help us identify what is and isn't working towards getting your needs met more fully.

Do negative thoughts interfere with your self-esteem? relationships? moods? I can help. I specialize in helping women recognize & amplify inner resources to recover from trauma, anxiety, depression, and distress while attending to the important relationships in their lives. I inherently operate with a social justice lens, which means that therapy cannot be separated from familial, societal, and religious conditioning we experience as unique beings on this planet. As a mixed-heritage lesbian, I appreciate the ways internalized oppression can show up in our efforts to maintain mental and emotional health.

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.

As a long-time practitioner, my way of working has evolved from a more traditional dynamic approach to a deep interest in the bridge between mind/body spiritual traditions and contemporary psychology. I have much varied experience working with both men and women who struggle with the challenges of loneliness and living a conscious, fulfilling and spontaneous life. If you are feeling stressed, or if anxiety or depression have you wrestling with problems that never seem to resolve, perhaps it's time to turn for help to a compassionate and engaged therapist.

Being human can be hard, especially right now. With consistent support, there can be a little more ease. When you work with me, you get a woman with a big heart, a keen mind, and a clarity of purpose. It is my mission to hold space for you to feel safe to sit with big emotions, and to express whatever is in you that needs to be let out. There is a way to a more joyful life, and I will support you in the process. I help you get in touch with your inner truths and pains. I hold space for you to feel, to speak, and to move through mental and emotional blocks holding you back from being your full, true self.

My specialization is in working with women and men who are trying to conceive, who are expecting and new parents on the transition to parenthood, including women struggling with Perinatal Mood Disorders (Prenatal and Postpartum Depression and/or Anxiety and/or OCD).
In my work with individual adults, new parents and couples who are struggling with all sorts of life-stressors, I have found the most effective approach to be one that is warm, collaborative and process-oriented; where the client(s) feels seen, heard and understood. Studies show that the one of most important ingredients in therapy is the relationship between therapist and client. I agree with this wholeheartedly and work from that perspective. Attachment, Family-Systems, Relational and Psychodynamic theories are all woven together to inform my work, as well.

I have particular expertise working with people in inter-racial/cross-cultural/mixed race relationships and bi/poly/pan/omni women .
Profound change comes through understanding and knowing ourselves. You can express yourself more clearly and be more fully yourself. I help people tap into their ability to understand themselves and those close to them, and communicate with love and respect. Sometimes, creating better relationships requires engaging in processes of healing old wounds and traumas. My goal is to help you, and with couples, you and your partner and families become happier.

I mindfully work with individuals from varied cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds, and specialize in working with women in moments of change and challenge, at all stages of life, with focus on early adulthood, pregnancy, and parenting.
Through co-creating a supportive environment that offers you opportunities for self reflection and gentle challenge, I will work with you to recognize the ways that painful and/or traumatic experiences have shaped your sense of value and impact your ways of relating to yourself and others. I support and stand alongside all who are survivors of emotional, sexual and/or physical violence and strive to create space for increased self love and resilience. I look forward to meeting you and discovering how we can address patterns that no longer serve you as we build awareness and skills to support you in gaining the life you want to live.

In addition to providing individual therapy and couples counseling, I run Anger Management groups for women .
There are usually two types of reasons people come into therapy. One is that find themselves making the same mistakes over and over again and they want to do something different, but are just not sure how. The other is that they have been carrying around a deep pain in their life that they want to resolve. Often these things are connected. This is why I work with you on two levels. I help you change the current unwanted behavior, while also helping you resolve issues from your past that may be effecting your reactions.

I have worked extensively with women with cancer, and people going through divorce, retirement, death of a partner, and most of life's various provocations which cause pain to the soul, all "traumas" in their own right.
I consider it a privilege to work with you to explore aspects of your life experience which have diminished your satisfaction with life or otherwise left you feeling lost or alone. Challenges around loss, aging, illness, trauma or relationships can feel too frightening to tackle alone. As a seasoned and compassionate psychotherapist, I can help you bear and work with what may feel unbearable. Together, we will create a protected space that fosters the trust, aliveness and self-expression that are essential to growth and success in love and work, where you can ultimately reclaim your life and joie-de-vivre.
