About

You don’t have to suffer, and you certainly don’t have to suffer alone. Hey there! My name is Macala ("muh-kae-luh"; pronouns: she/they) and I strive to make therapy accessible and relevant for gender/sexual minorities and communities of color. As an EMDR trained yoga psychotherapist, I integrate mindfulness and the science of trauma to support your mental health. My practice is rooted in considering you as a whole person - mind, body, spirit, culture, and in relationship to community. Together we will collaborate on a goal, learn practical techniques to improve your wellbeing, and progress at your pace towards growth.
I specialize in helping Black/POC queer women, femmes, and nonbinary folks develop holistic coping strategies for complex identity trauma. I work with adults, teens (14-17), and couples interested in healing their relationship with themselves and others.
If you are processing a life transition, your self-esteem, identity, depression, anxiety, trauma, anger, or have felt therapy is not meant for you, I welcome exploring this together.
