* I'm currently not able to accept new clients.* I'm a therapist of color creating a space for Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) as it may often feel like traditional spaces weren’t created with you in mind…including therapeutic spaces. There are biases that lean toward values that aren't congruent with yours, which makes it difficult to be seen and heard for all of your intersectional identities. Healing can occur in myriad ways: through community, education, personal expression, or therapy. The therapy space I've created is free of judgement and oppressive values.

It's only by renewing our minds that we can transform into being the people that we want to be. We can have the lives that we want. By becoming friends with ourselves and creating a positive internal dialogue you can change your entire life. Right now you are absolutly perfect and loving at your core and always have been. No longer do you have to be confined by your misinterpretations and misperceptions from your past. This takes awareness and time but absolutely can be done with me as your guide. I'd love to work with you!

While we are given instruction on how to drive, how to work, etc., we are rarely given an education on how to cope with the stressors of our daily lives. Through understanding, validation, and support, I help my clients achieve their full potential. By nurturing insight and providing consistent support, my clients have the opportunity to work at their own pace and deal with issues that they feel are preventing them from moving forward. In my practice, I try to provide both emotional support and tools that can be used beyond the therapy session.

We are in the midst of a powerful and pressurized time. Personal challenges are amplified by collective stress and it can be difficult to navigate such new and complex terrain within and around us. We want to feel connected, whole, and in our purpose, but separation, isolation, and fragmented realities are heightened. In this time, awareness, compassion, and courage are needed to meet the painful spaces and shed light on our shadows, transforming them into opportunities for more presence, fulfillment, and peace. I aim to empower the healer within you. As we heal, we serve ourselves and the world around us for the better.
