About

Searching for a space where you can just be you? Sometimes life can present challenges that make it hard for us to simply exist as who we are. As your therapist, I will provide a space that is both comforting and non-judgemental. Here we can work together to help you explore unique aspects of yourself that can help you address hardship, live as the fullest version of yourself and a life that feels satisfying for you. My approach to therapy is client-centered, compassionate, collaborative, curious and rooted in the idea that you have the capacity to re-story and improve the reality of your life.
Some areas of life I can assist in includes the impacts of trauma, depression, anxiety, infidelity, relationship problems, gender/sexual orientation, and life transitions. I find great joy in working with many from diverse backgrounds: Communities of color (specifically African American/Black folks), and LGBTQIA+. I am also polyamorous and Kink friendly.
I use a combination of therapeutic skill sets, such as Narrative therapy and DBT to help identify unpreferred patterns, and highlight the strengths within you to help effectively manifest the goals that matter most to you. If you would like to learn more about my approach, you're welcome to reach out to me via phone call or email to schedule a consultation!
