Are you a burned out, high-achieving woman of color? Does it seem like you are constantly overwhelmed and have been putting your mental health last on your “to do” list? Are you struggling with placing healthy boundaries and making yourself a priority? Have you tried to solve the problems in your life on your own and realized you need help from someone else? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you have made the right choice by being here. I know seeking help can be hard. You’ve likely been debating seeking help for months, if not years, but I'm so glad you have taken the courageous step of being here.
I help high-achieving, young professional women of color who struggle with anxiety find clarity and reclaim their self-worth. My approach is culturally sensitive, trauma-informed, person-centered, warm, and compassionate. I use interventions that are appropriate to your situation. I'm trauma certified and a Brainspotting Practitioner.
I am accepting new clients and am currently offering teletherapy services via video to California residents. If you are interested in starting therapy and would like to learn more about me and my practice, please call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you.
