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.

BIPOC and QTBIPOC and others on the margins are often unheard and actively silenced in a society that promotes white supremacy, heteronormativity and propagates the idea that only certain bodies and identities are valuable. I believe that we all deserve to be seen, to be heard and to be valued. Black women-identified people have a unique experience of oppression at the intersection of race and gender. We experience racism, sexism and misogynoir. Black women are often silenced, shut down, marginalized and told our feelings do not matter because we have to “be strong.”

It can be difficult to take up emotional space in our every day lives. Therapy is your space for your emotional experience; a space to be held and seen as a whole and complex being. I view therapy as a journey into self-actualization. I believe that fostering self-awareness is one of the most important and beneficial aspects of effective psychotherapy. Through the development of your increased self-awareness we can reframe and shed light on your internal and external struggles. This way you can be an active participant in your own healing as you work toward an enhanced sense of empowerment and self-agency.

We all have work to do. We don't have to do it alone. In a safe, non-judgmental environment, I explore with my clients their dreams, artwork, relationships, and daily life experiences, to bring light and insight to blockages and barriers to their full experience and enjoyment of life. Such blockages can be past trauma, incorrect embedded beliefs, injured parts, and/or ingrained thought patterns and habits. Once these things are processed and/or healed, new ways forward can be nurtured.
