About

Welcome! I am the Owner and Co-Founder of Melanated Wellness, LLC. Our mission places particular emphasis on better serving and empowering the Black, Neurodiverse, and LGBTQIA communities. I specialize in working with adolescents, 16 and older, through adulthood as they navigate their journeys of growth, healing, and development. Training and clinical expertise at Melanated Wellness is centered upon compassionate treatment for issues related to trauma, anxiety, PTSD, neurodiversity and sexual and gender identity. Clients will be welcomed to a collaborative space where they can identify their needs to begin working towards wellness.
Melanated Wellness takes a person-centered approach, which is central to meeting clients where they are — for constructing purposeful lives, creating meaningful relationships, and progression towards personal empowerment. Areas of specialization include, but are not limited to: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Informed Care, and EMDR.
At Melanated Wellness, we value being culturally competent and sensitive, attuned to our client’s challenges, strengths and needs for wellness and community. If you are looking for a therapist that will meet you where you are and create a space for healing and wellness, please reach out!
