About

I am a Black Femme from Chicago and currently work as a licensed professional counselor, art therapist, and artist. Utilizing art to shift narratives around healing, mental health, and creating spaces where exploration and re-imagination are valued. I have worked with a range of people across the lifespan in community, correctional, and nonprofit settings. Working with individuals seeking support with addressing anxiety, cultural trauma, depression, and self-esteem.
My therapy practice seeks to promote person-centered and culturally responsive care through an intersectional approach. Weaving traditional talk therapy with elements of art therapy and creative expression. My clinical work and art practice often explore the intersections of art and mental health, primarily in BIPOC communities.
I am committed to a person-centered approach to healing with a focus on intergenerational cultural trauma that acknowledges the multiple systems of oppression and the impact those systems have on our emotional, mental, and physical well-being. I believe in collaborating with people with the hopes of creating brave spaces that invite multiple perspectives.
