Marriage & Family Therapist, PhD, MS, MA, LMFT
I have been a therapist and director of counseling programs for several years. I specialize in adults , women’s issues and couples’ therapy. I listen well, draw from theory and practical life experience to understand what my client is experiencing. I also consider what social pressures or situations impact your thinking/emotional states and what therapeutic approach might be most helpful. I take into account the client's unique human diversity, personal development, and spirituality. Together, we select the most achievable goals and work toward those.

My job is to work myself out of a job. I work with youth, adults , and families through decision making and strengthening life skills, by emphasizing relationships and making laughter a priority.​ I hold a relational lens in my practice, focused on not only your relationship with others, but also on your relationship with yourself. The key to therapeutic services, and relationships in general, is to make sure that there is a level of trust and comfort for the client to build rapport and explore experiences without feeling shame or judgement.

I specialize in adolescents and young adults who may need support with anxiety, depression, identity transitions, or social/emotional issues.
We all have challenges in life, and it takes courage and support to make the changes you strive for. As a Black woman, who lives with limited vision, I have the experience of being vulnerable and making life changes with the support of others. As a result, I know that by working with support, you can have the full life that you so readily deserve. As a therapist, I am someone who will work with you to build healthier ways to manage your emotions, incorporate coping skills during times of challenge, and to learn acceptance and self-compassion. Resulting in the person you want to be.

I have a special passion in working with children, teens and young adults who are emerging and forming their own identity.
Do you ever feel like you give so much of yourself to love and help others but they don't love you back in the same way? Are you burnt out and exhausted from feeling like people around you take advantage of how you jump all in, in loving them? Do you feel resentful of these relationships? Perhaps you feel like if you don't love them the extra 9 miles, then they won't love you at all or that they will leave you. Sometimes this causes us anxiety and feelings of depression that paralyzes us to live life.

My office is designed to meet the needs of both children and adults , and is located in Hayward near the 880 freeway.
Effective psychotherapy enables clients to take control of their own feelings and behavior by gently uncovering the connections between past experiences and current difficulties. Positive change occurs in an atmosphere of responsibility and hope, and a respectful, dedicated therapist can effectively guide this process. I integrate straightforward communication and empathy in the context of steady, clear boundaries. Our interactions will be active and enthusiastic. Psychological services include psychodynamic therapy, play therapy, and family court related interventions.

I have over 5 years of clinical experience working with kids, teens, young adults , professionals and older adults .
One of the amazing aspects of therapy is that it provides a unique opportunity for people to have a space where the focus is on their needs and growth. Very few other spaces exist where your needs and well-being can be the priority. This is a key part of the healing power of therapy, which is why I believe it is so important you find a therapist who is a good fit for you.

Are you living a life of "quiet desperation"? Get to the bottom of your problems by connecting with yourself. Psychotherapy can help identify and overcome blocks that prevent you from being your real self. Are you repeating patterns from childhood despite your best efforts not to? Those patterns were likely formed early in childhood as a survival mechanism and now that you no longer need those patterns, they feel like a prison. Psychotherapy provides the key that opens the door. If you are afraid that you cannot do this, please do not sell yourself short and give yourself a chance.

I work with individual adults of all ages, and with couples.
We are in challenging times with many unknowns. Perhaps you're struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, or loss. Or you're dealing with transition, chronic pain or trauma. There are many paths to emotional wellness, and psychotherapy is one. If you are open to engaging in this process, I am here to help you to develop a deeper relationship with yourself and others and a practice of personal inquiry. This can involve learning to notice and strengthen what works, let go of what doesn't, and find new behaviors and understandings. The results can include a greater sense of confidence, ease and effectiveness.

What type of Hayward mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Hayward?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
