About

we heal in relationship. we heal in community. activating our personal and collective healing is the core of realizing our capacity for change. through a collaborative therapeutic process, we work together to explore your emotional landscape, experiences, family and community dynamics, social and economic systems that impact this, and identify practices that support your embodied adaptation and healing. together, we hold space for intentional change that grows our "capacity to embody the liberated and just worlds we long for." we engage in healing through a liberatory and embodied practice-- 100% virtual/telehealth.
my clinical approach is relational, rooted in healing justice, and is trauma-oppression informed. i engage my work grounded in my identities as a Black queer, non-binary femme and view intersectionality as foundational for therapeutic exploration. my zone of genius is helping creative Black + Brown LGBTQ+ Gender Expansive folx disrupt trauma patterns.
i focus on centering the voices of those often forced to society's margins (e.g., Black, Brown + Indigenous folx, LGBTQIA+, trans, gender-expansive people, immigrants/undocumented folx, sex workers, kinky + sex+ folx, people in various relationship structures+++). healing + liberation are connected. **email to see how i might support you in your journey.
