About

Clearly you have taken the first step into your wellbeing. As a psychologist, I will respect your narrative working alongside you to explore the barriers keeping you stuck. I commit to be with as you explore and challenge concerns, barriers, deepening your self-awareness so that you may live your authentic life. I received my PhD in Clinical Psychology from the Graduate School of The City University of New York. I am a licensed clinical psychologist in the State of New York.
I was the Director of Behavioral Health at a Community Based Organization in Harlem developing a behavioral health program for men, women, children, and LGBTQ infected and affected with HIV/AIDS, conducting individual, groups, and family therapy. I simultaneously worked in a group practice working with people a diagnosed with a seizure disorder.
I come with a diverse clinical background, my clinical interest includes but are not limited to disparities in mental health services, depression and women, substance abuse, trauma, psychogenic seizures (PNES), empowerment and self-advocacy, HIV/AIDS, Stigma as it is related to being diagnosed with HIV/AIDS and mental illness and the impact of racial trauma.
