In my practice, I provide individual therapy to adult survivors of trauma, grief, and loss, chronic stress, anxiety, depression, and loneliness. I collaborate with people who want to uproot stigma, stuckness, and what no longer serves in their lives. I support people who want to plant reparative seeds, and who want to grow a life-story that centers healing, radical self-care, improved quality of life, and deliberate joy. I hold specialized awareness to the unique issues of mental health and intersectionality, focusing primarily on racial identity/issues impacting black women, LGBTQIA+ communities, BIPOC , *all women, and allies.

**Tweens and Teens only/Sólo adolescentes y pre-adolescentes* You're tired of blank-stare professionals who treat your kid like they're a diagnosis and not a unique human being. You're ready for a therapist who can relate equally to you and your tween/teen. You've sat across the table as well-meaning professionals described your child as "defiant" and "disrespectful." You may be feeling this way about them too. You're ready for something different. Quick fixes have only gotten you so far and your family is ready for emotionally transformative experience. This is where I come in.

**Please note email is my preferred method of contact for new clients**When my clients are functioning at their best they are creative, playful, passionate, and hard-working. They are adults aged 18+ who are interested in a holistic look at their wellbeing (including factors like sleep quality, relationships, movement etc.). When struggling they tend to find themselves overwhelmed with worry, self-doubt, and/or self-criticism. They are also curious about their body sensations and what that information may mean for their mental health.

Hello! After working 30+ years as a business leader with a highly successful career history of leading business and personal transformation, coaching, mentoring and training, I responded to the “call” from the Holy Spirit and pursued my passion of helping others with life's struggles and began to exercise my spiritual gifts of exhortation and mercy. My foundational scripture which anchors me is Proverbs 11:14 which says, "Where there is no counsel, the people fall; but in the multitude of counselors there is safety."

When we are struggling with emotional or physical pain, hope can be tough to come by. If you are considering psychotherapy, there is good reason to be hopeful. As an evidence-based clinical health psychologist, I feel fortunate to practice at a time when the science behind psychotherapy is in full bloom. I am particularly passionate about mind-body approaches that combine modern cognitive and behavioral therapies with the wisdom that ancient contemplative practices have to offer.

You’ve had issues with anxiety or depression for as long as you can remember. You’ve worked so hard at overcoming your issues in the past and you fear that if you let yourself fully feel your sadness and anxiety, you won't be able to recover. Your family has told you that you are too dramatic, and this has caused you to not want to share your negative feelings with others. You worry that they may grow tired of your negativity. You need an outlet to talk through your feelings, but you can’t bring yourself to go to yourself to your friends and family again. Things could be worse, but you know life could also be so much better!

As a sex therapist focusing on the experiences of people within historical and current-day contexts, I seek to support the exploration, healing, and restorative practices concerning our bodies, sexuality, and pleasure. We will explore how you see yourself within your own body by creating a space that feels safe for you within our sessions. I am a sex therapist in training. I am an active member of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT). AASECT does not find sufficient empirical evidence to support the classification of sex addiction or porn addiction as a mental health issue.

Being a human can be really hard sometimes. Maybe it’s hard because there’s an area in our lives where we struggle, like in our careers or relationships. Perhaps, we’ve experienced some painful times that we haven’t fully healed from or find ourselves engaging in problematic behaviors. Whatever our struggles, I’ve found that psychotherapy can help reduce our suffering and help connect us to the joy of being alive.
