Lastly, I enjoy focusing on the unique needs and concerns for Black , Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) women, femmes, and non-binary folks who have experienced trauma/wounds by using trauma-informed therapy and strength-based approach to encourage you to become unstuck to find/return to your true self.
•Currently Not Accepting Clients• Welcome! As a Haitian American therapist, I value self-exploration, collaboration, and finding one’s inner strength. My primary goal is to create a safe space that will allow individuals to feel accepted and heard, while simultaneously be challenged to develop healthy coping skills. My approach to therapy is inclusive, LGBTQAI+ positive, and culturally-affirming. We will work together via in-person and/or online counseling with the goal of encouraging self-awareness, learning to manage emotions/triggers, and feelings of frustration in oneself.

As a Black , Brown & Puerto Rican therapist, I am particularly attuned to the difficulties that can accompany one's experience of multiple and intersecting identities including race, culture, religion, gender, sexual preference, class, ability and illness. I work from an integrative, multi-cultural, and social-justice informed perspective to provide creative and collaborative counseling that accommodates each person’s unique experiences, needs, strengths, and goals. I enjoy facilitating growth and liberation from internalized oppression, internalized capitalism, racial and intergenerational trauma.

I am dedicated to connecting Black , Indigenous, People of Color, immigrant communities and LGBTQIA+ folks to healing spaces.
Understanding who we are as individuals and what has led us to this point in our lives is an important part of each person’s journey. Often, we go through the motions of our daily routines without stopping to consider what we actually feel or how we want to live. Engaging in therapy allows you the space to pause in full awareness of yourself and take a breath. It is a space for witnessing yourself, for speaking your truth, for recognizing your needs and for honoring your journey up to this point.

My focus is adults who are struggling with a sexual issue. I want to help people of all kinds; people of all genders, people of all races, people of all sexual orientations (heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual and asexual), people in all kinds of relationships (polyamorous, monogamous) and people with varied ability-levels. I consider myself to be honest, knowledgeable, wise and confident. Additionally, I identify as a deaf Black woman. It should be noted that I lost my hearing as an adult and I wear an implant, thus my communication skills are excellent, and I can hear quite well.

The need to feel heard and understood exists within all of us and is vital to thrive in life.  Without this need being met, you can find yourself struggling with feeling disconnected from others, weighed down by depression, held back by traumatic memories, overwhelmed by worry and fear, or stuck in your life while it seems as if everyone else is passing you by.  Holding your story with great care, I can offer you a safe haven so that you can reach your own healing and a sense of empowerment in your life.

This has been a particularly difficult few years. Even as we are trying to do our best day to day, we may still need extra support. Therapy is a safe space where we can identify, examine, and start to shift our thoughts, feelings, and patterns in order to create more joy and well-being. As a social worker, I believe that life challenges typically do not begin within people, but are often a mismatch between strengths, our environments, and the things we've experienced in the past. My goal is to help sort things out and start to recognize and shift patterns that cause us pain.

I have the privilege of accompanying clients as they go through some of the most painful and some of the most joyous times of their lives. I see therapy as a journey that the client and therapist take together with the therapist playing the role of a traveling companion, guide, and interpreter. I have extensive experience providing counseling services to adolescents, adults, and families in various clinical settings. The focus of treatment includes improving self-image, changing negative self-talk, and working through trauma. My approach is collaborative, working together to define and achieve therapy goals.

“There is no greater agony than bearing the untold story inside you.” - Maya Angelou. Each person’s story shapes them and a burden to carry alone that is relieved when met with empathy. I consider it an honor to be present with clients as they share their untold story, gain greater self-knowledge, and manifest the story that is yet to come. I come from a place of curiosity and non-judgement around each individual’s lived experience. I hope to create a warm, accepting space where you can be your authentic self, feel safe to express your uncensored thoughts and share both laughter and tears.

I am particularly energized by using Internal Family Systems (IFS), a transformative model of psychotherapy that uses techniques to harmonize the inner system, which IFS theorizes is comprised of sub-parts or personalities that serve various adaptive functions.

You'd like a place where you can bring and explore your full self, non-judgmentally, and with care. Maybe there's a part of you that's pleading to be seen, heard, and understood. You'd like some assistance in not only making sense of the world around you, but also discovering what that means for you, on your terms. Perhaps you feel like you have it all figured out, but just need a place that can offer you a chance to just "be". You're drained, fatigued, overwhelmed, and frustrated. You're hopeful, curious, and maybe even excited. At your core you know it's time for you to put yourself first, and to give yourself the gift of therapy.

Once you are engaged in a safe, validating and honest therapeutic space, there is tremendous potential for growth. I appreciate the risk you take when you share your struggles and stories. In honoring that risk, I will remind you every step of the way of your power. Pain, distress and discomfort can inform us about the ways we see, move through, and live in the world. I will encourage you to explore these pain points and move forward with a new perspective: more in alignment with your values and goals. I come from a social justice framework and trauma-informed lens, acknowledging how inequity and injustice inform your narrative.

I work with adults whose goal is to heal from the psychological and emotional effects of personal & intergenerational traumas, minority related trauma or stress, as well as LGBTQIA and Non-Monogamous identity or relationship stressors. Their ideal goals would be to better manage emotional triggers due to past traumas, LGBTQIA related issues and Non-Monogamous relationship stressors. The objective would be to develop the insight, self-confidence, and concrete skills to shift from feelings of shame, guilt, anger or resentment to feelings of empowerment, affirmation, self-love and confidence to build healthier relationships.

I am often described as a warm, empathic person who creates a comfortable, supportive, and safe therapeutic environment. Unlike the distant, silent psychoanalyst stereotype, I am a real person in the room. I respond to what you tell me, ask questions, and will even share a laugh with you. My approach is based on the premise that relationships are essential in shaping who we are as people and how we experience the world.
