Everyone needs a safe space to talk about life's difficult moments. Creating that safe/non-judgemental space is my primary goal in every session. Using a supportive and collaborative approach, I aim to help you develop insight and awareness into your struggles in order to foster healing and growth. I believe in meeting you where you are and walking beside you throughout your journey of enlightenment.
I approach therapy using an eclectic approach that includes: Psychodynamic theory, Feminist theory, Cognitive Behavioral therapy, and Gestalt theory. I have experience working with multicultural and identity issues, race issues, gender and sexuality, body image, depression, anxiety, and trauma. I also have experience working with individuals and couples.
As a Nigerian-American Black Woman I am attuned to the stigma behind mental health and I approach therapy using a Multicultural lens that incorporates every part of your identity into therapy. If you are ready to begin your journey, feel free to email or call to set up our first session.
