About

I want to be your sparkle homie (a.k.a. therapist). What does it mean to be a sparkle homie? To me, a sparkle homie is a person that “gets you” where you are at. As a therapist (and sparkle homie), I seek to affirm, understand, and truly see folks. I utilize holistic, play, and nerd/geek-friendly therapies to be a partner in folks’ journey towards wholeness. Through the integration of geek, nerd, and gaming culture into the therapy process, I seek to understand clients on the basis of their personal passions. I want to know what a person’s game, anime, or comic of choice says about them and the hopes and strengths that they possess.
As a black and proudly plus-sized person, my therapy is fat-friendly and body glorifying. All bodies, existences, and spirits are welcome to explore their selfhood without judgment or shame.
It is my honor to offer a space that can hold all people. As a black and proudly plus-sized person, my therapy is fat-friendly and body glorifying. All bodies, existences, and spirits are welcome to explore their selfhood without judgment or shame. I welcome you to reach out and book me for a complimentary vibe check to see if we are a good fit.
