In therapy, it feels essential to look at not only our own thoughts and emotions but also the expectations set by our environment. I utilize affirmative, trauma-informed, and relational lenses to encourage insight and explore assumptions impacting how we engage with the world around us. My clinical and research focuses relate to sexual identity, gender diversity and transition, and ethically non-monogamous relationships. Aside from these, I work often with anxiety, depression, communication, conflict management, boundaries, trauma, life transitions, discrimination, substance use, and premarital/ marital counseling.

Specifically, I work with communication issues in relationships, pre- marital counseling, intercultural relationships, LGBTQ issues, Non-monogamy, polyamory, and open relationships.
Therapy, from my perspective, is all about balance and curiosity. High hopes and occasional tough love balanced with gentleness and compassion for yourself and your loved ones. Embracing and working toward change while also accepting oneself and loving our immutable parts. Curiosity about why we are the way we are and where we might go from here, and the openness and vulnerability to get there. I view therapy as very much a collaboration -- I bring my expertise in therapeutic methods, you bring your expertise in your own life, and together we work to build the best future for you.

I hold my MS in Marriage and Family Therapy from Northwestern University in and a BA in Psychology from Spelman College.
There is power in seeking the help of others along our journey, and it is my hope that therapy can represent a unique healing environment, focused on your reality and your needs. The change that we all seek lies within our stories being validated and understood. As we witness the power of our stories in light of culture, race, gender, sexual orientation, and other intersections of identity through therapy, we partner in using your strengths to lessen your limitations. By developing your self-awareness, we can work to heal from past wounds, develop more understanding of your Self and those around you, and create better relationships.

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a background in Massage Therapy, I also believe reconnecting our minds and bodies allows for a richer understanding of ourselves.
I believe life and relationships are full of challenging, yet rewarding transitions. These transitions provide us with valuable opportunities to understand ourselves more deeply, and to strengthen our relationships. By recognizing our patterns of behavior and understanding why we have them, we are then able to decide if, and how, we want to change those patterns. I strive to help couples and individuals reach this place of understanding by drawing on their strengths and fostering compassion.

It can be truly difficult to acknowledge you need help and seek that help out. Thank you for taking the first step in the path to healing! I provide therapy utilizing a relational, collaborative, person-centered approach. The fundamental basis of any relationship is centered on trust. I model this by strengthening rapport and creating a comfortable, non-judgmental space for you to explore thoughts, feelings and address your reasons for coming to therapy. I believe my role as a therapist is to guide my client(s) as they navigate through life stressors, reprocess distressing experiences, and increase self-awareness.

As a marriage and family therapist, I work with both individuals and couples.
We live in a culture where we deal with daily stress and sometimes trauma based on our marginalized identities, whether they be race, gender, sexual orientation, class, or ability level. Combine that with the ongoing effects of the pandemic and the stress of the constant negative news feed, and it becomes easy to feel overwhelmed and lose our balance. Having been in practice for 18 years and tuned into the ways in which our culture affects us all, I'm here to help. Reaching out to a therapist can be scary. I work to create an open, judgement-free environment where we will work on your problems collaboratively.

Our warm and friendly therapists have been trained in affective-neuroscience as it relates to psychotherapy and marriage /couples counseling in order to facilitate growth and healing in the shortest time-span possible.
Welcome to the Center for Relational Transformation. We are a group of relationship experts who can help you with any relationship issue or any psychological issue that stems from relational difficulties (depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, PTSD, neglect, abuse). Based on what we now know from the latest research in neuroscience, deep healing on a fundamental level is possible. Instead of just treating symptoms, we can cue up and facilitate "corrective emotional experiences" that can profoundly heal past hurt and trauma for both individuals and couples. You don't need to suffer any longer.
