As a Black, queer , immigrant clinical psychologist I have a deep understanding and appreciation for those who struggle to survive.
Sometimes in life we get overwhelmed, feel stuck, and hopeless. Sometimes it can feel as though things keep piling up against us and it can be hard to feel complete. Some people may experience this emotionally, others more physically. Different things trigger these responses in us and make it hard for us to thrive. Whether it is the pandemic, trauma, depression, anxiety, family or relational conflict, self-esteem issues, racial injustice, or grief, having an outlet to make space for this discomfort can help alleviate the pain and move you towards a place of healing.

Each of us has our own story, a lived experience that shapes how we see each other and the world. I want to understand, and help you see more clearly, how that affects you and the issues that caused you to seek therapy. I've helped people work through anxiety, grief, depression, cultural and relational issues, and trauma, among many other types of challenges. Through a client-centered approach, I'll work side by side with you, helping you navigate a path forward that you feel comfortable with.

My work has ignited my passion to work with people who live life through the lens of multiple cultures: the culture you might be born into and your ever evolving one. If you find yourself in a different country or environment, whether its creating a better opportunity for your family, education, or professionally based. Experiencing confusion and feelings of not belonging, isn’t uncommon.Being in an interracial or intercultural relationship adds its own layer of obstacles and difficulties. You might notice that your experiences through the world differ, and even your life expectations.

Living in the Bay Area is both exhilarating and challenging.

Are you experiencing work or relationship stress or have other worries or concerns? You do not have to navigate this alone. Friends and family are usually well meaning and can provide support, but there may be times when it is appropriate to consult a professional who can focus on YOUR needs and find solutions to the challenges you encounter.

Perhaps you have experienced a traumatic event or childhood neglect that is manifesting as fear, anxiety, or helplessness. Or it could be that you recognize the signs of depression but feel like you have nowhere to turn. If any of this sounds familiar, you are not alone. And I want to assure you that there is much we can do to help you find inner peace and greater contentment.
