Announcement icon Virtual therapy is now available to Washington, DC and MD residents. Safe. Simple. Cozy. We can grow through this pandemic together.
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.
I offer outdoor "walk-and-talk" therapy, but am also offering online therapy at this time. I use nature and narrative as a trauma-informed framework and infuse sensorimotor approaches, mindfulness-based stress reduction practice, and creative writing journal prompts into your care plan. Each session is intended to honor your specific needs and goals.
With whatever narrative you hold and with whatever lived experiences you have survived, you made it to this moment. Let us honor that. You are deserving of a sense of belonging. I invite the opportunity to co-create a safe space-- surrounded with strengths, resiliency, and hope-- that can open a journey to your reflective process, re-discovery, and repair.
