I specialize in helping professional women (and smart men!) of color in successfully navigating the increasingly challenging world of work. It is an understatement to say that the world of work is complex. From balancing family and intimate relationships with our professional ambitions to handling the challenges of maneuvering organizational politics and work relationships where we feel people just aren’t getting us. I get it!

I often work with men and women who either want to find love in their lives or who have recently experienced a loss of relationship through a painful break up. I have successfully helped clients getting "unstuck" and moving forward in their lives, work, and relationships. My approach is client-centered and relational.

My practice offers a safe and relaxing space to begin the psychotherapeutic journey. As a college professor and clinician for many years I offer a wide range of therapeutic approaches that go beyond talk therapy: such as mindfulness practice, mind/body awareness skills, and other psycho-educational practices. I think that good clinical treatment resides in the therapeutic relationship informed by the latest research on the brain and the gut and an overall multi-modal approach to the person(s) sitting across from me.

Becoming a new mom isn't always what we expect it to be. In fact, many women feel completely overwhelmed; sadder than they expected, anxious about something terrible happening to the baby, and often afraid of their own thoughts. In therapy with me, you will find that you’re able to exhale the pain that you’ve been holding inside. Together, we will find you relief. I create a safe and judgment-free space so that you can process your experiences openly and honestly, while feeling supported and held by someone who really understands maternal mental health and wellness.

In particular I have worked with children and adults suffering from anxiety, depression, and inhibition, as well as, specifically working with women around sexuality and fertility issues.
Psychoanalytic therapy is much maligned in popular media but it remains for me one of the few treatment modalities that addresses the innermost, often hidden, parts of ourselves. Psychological symptoms are not only a source of suffering, they are also a message that speaks to desires, conflicts, and pain, wrought by a personal history that can sometimes only come alive when spoken to a professional listening other. The flip-side of anxiety is always a passionate dream that has not been encountered as such. I see my work as bringing my clients closer to that possibility.
