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 Christian , I enjoy working with people who may want to integrate their spiritual faith with their current concerns.
Trying to resolve issues in our life can be difficult and serious work but usually worth all the effort and time. These changes may come from sustained effort, learning from past failure, exploring detours, walking in faith, fostering patience to allow change to happen to us, addressing chemical imbalances, and many other factors. Many, perhaps most times in our lives, we can make these changes through our own efforts or help from our friends or family. Sometimes we may need help from professional guidance to help make sense of or add to all of these efforts.

My Christian faith is also very important to me and I am willing to provide faith-based counseling for those who are interested.
I primarily utilize CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) to help clients identify the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behavior. I also implement ACT (Acceptance/Commitment Therapy) in therapy to instruct clients in developing mindfulness skills to help individuals learn how to relax and face their fears on their own free from judgment in order to cultivate self-compassion and acceptance. I have experience working with individuals struggling with mood disorders (Depression/Anxiety), relationship issues, as well as individuals struggling with substance abuse/addiction.

Some clients find me because they want counseling from a Christian worldview.
Have you tried to stop looking at porn but can't? Have secrets sapped the trust and respect from your relationship? Do memories of past hurts intrude into the present? Infidelity, porn, or sex addiction -- and the shame that comes along with it -- can take away our voice. Let's talk and make sure you're heard. I have helped many individuals and couples develop healthy sexuality and rebuild trust. It would be my honor to walk alongside you.

Even though I am at a Christian counseling center, you do not have to have any spiritual or religious beliefs.
I meet people where they are at in their story. My goal is to walk along side people to discover their own resources for healing. I listen deeply. I bring a non judgmental presence that creates a safe place to talk about who they are, where they have been, and where they want to be. I am able to balance empathy with constructive challenge. I work with individuals, couples, and families of all ages that struggle with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma, grief/loss and family dynamics.

Having served in various Christian healing contexts for over 17 years, I have had many opportunities to help people get through a crisis and find new meaning.
Therapy is Sacred Ground. People's hurts, dreams and hearts are sacred too. I honor the the courage it takes to face difficulties from the past and begin to live and dream again. I have years of experience helping people manage transitions and experience victory over past traumatic experiences. I advocate for and help guide clients to rediscover their personal resilience and internal resources to overcome difficult circumstances and issues (trauma, depression and anxiety). I am a calm, compassionate listener who enjoys celebrating your growth and helping you to embrace new meaning in your life with joy and courage.

I was baptized in the Christian faith at a young age; however, I now consider myself more spiritual than religious.
As a Black cisgender female I have experienced racial and gender discrimination, microaggressions, microinsults, microinvalidations, and sexual harassment. This is why I specialize in providing culturally sensitive psychotherapy to BIPOC and other marginalized populations. My education, training, and experience have provided me with a unique understanding of the mental health challenges pertaining to BIPOC and other marginalized populations. I'm also a retired law enforcement/corrections officer who has a unique understanding of the mental health challenges of first responders.

I'm a psychotherapist, relationship specialist, wife and mom. Many of us can recognize patterns of our behavior that used to be helpful but now get in the way in the relationships we want. In many ways navigating difficult circumstances allowed us to survive or even thrive, but the ways we cope now don’t benefit us in the long run. These interactions can surprise us at times because while our lives can feel full and abundant, we also can feel sadness, resentment, and worry.

You've recently entered a new life stage. Despite your best efforts, you're struggling- overwhelmed with self-doubt, second-guessing, and fear. You want to move forward in a healthy way, but don't know how. There's conflict in many of your relationships. You feel stuck and need support as you untangle your emotions and boundaries. You're looking for a space to figure things out as you grow into your identity, determining what to keep from your family, experiences, and past, and what to leave behind.

I utilize a collaborative and mindful approach that is compassion focused and trauma informed to help you find healing. I hold psychotherapy as space for you to pursue wholeness and flourish in your life. I recognize the intrapsychic trauma that stems from issues of systemic oppression through racism, sexism, ableism, and other forms of structural violence. I am a queer friendly LGBTQIA+ affirming therapist. Through my experience working with individuals diagnosed with severe eating disorders and comorbid clinical issues, I am attuned to how western patriarchal culture creates shame and consequential body dysmorphia.

It may seem like we are alone in our journey. We are all waging a personal invisible fight that we share with few people. Individual therapy is a way to help you make sense of your experience, and gain emotional support to push through difficult times. Beginning therapy is an opportunity to start offering yourself more compassion and grace. I’ve spent eight years supporting adults and families in crisis. I work with adults and adolescents struggling with transitions, grief, anxiety, depression, panic, phobias and addiction.

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.

Your mental health is very important. Whether you are struggling with a new problem or one that has been on-going, an emotional problem or a bio-chemical one, or even relationship challenges, getting support can make a world of difference. Establishing a safe environment to talk and building a trusting relationship is essential in building a therapeutic relationship. I provide a warm and caring environment for you to trust and share intimate thoughts and feelings, including at times, conflicting thoughts, anxious feelings, depressed mood, traumatic events, etc.
