About

We work with a diverse clientele and specialize in providing social justice oriented psychotherapy to Black people and other People of Color as well as members of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQIA+) communities, neurodivergent clients, performers, educators, professionals, and caretakers. We provide culturally responsive and affirming therapy, which focuses on the strengths that you already have and work with you to build a safe space where you can share your experiences without the fear of being judged. Then we help you to focus on your aspirations, and how to make them real.
We are a team of highly skilled clinicians who specialize in providing social justice oriented online psychotherapeutic support. We pay close attention to what is happening for you in-the-moment, and work to understand the different beliefs that we bring into the room, and how these worldviews might affect our interaction with you.
One of the most difficult and most useful things that you can do in life is to ask for help. Whether you are dealing with hard times or working to enhance your strengths, identifying and building a strong support network can be the key to your success. Together, we can help you develop new skills and assist you in reaching your goals.
