I support Black women, Indigenous women, and women of the global majority who are living with depression, anxiety, and trauma. As a registered dance/movement psychotherapist, I address depression, anxiety, and other mental health concerns using a combination of body-based creative expression, mindfulness practices, and evidence-based behavioral techniques (like cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy). My work is informed by my dance practice, which is rooted in Afro-Caribbean culture and ritual.

I am a LGBTQ+ affirming therapist and particularly enjoy working with Black , Brown, Indigenous, and POC clients.
Searching for a therapist can be overwhelming, even more so when you are going through life challenges and have limited energy to spare. Therapy can provide a space for healing, clarity, and growth, and the relationship between therapist and client has been found to be the most important ingredient in that process. I approach my work with flexibility, compassion, and a deep respect for self-determination. I firmly believe you are the expert in your experience.

One thing this pandemic did if nothing else is it made us turn inward. What happens when we turn inward, sometimes we may not like what we see or we may want to change things. As a black female therapist, I enjoy helping clients process inner child wounds whether that be related to trauma, racism, or other layers of societal expectations. Clients and I strive to create collaborative goals toward healing and acceptance of self. We can be both in a place in of acceptance and transition towards our healthiest self.

My experiences as a black man, veteran and immigrant have driven me to help others dealing with the struggles unique to those and other marginalized communities.
Depression, trauma, anxiety, and relationship difficulties can keep us from living the life that we deserve. Psychotherapy can help us develop the necessary tools to cope and process our way through life’s challenges. I am a trained psychotherapist who enjoys working with adults and couples. My non-judgmental approach facilitates a safe and encouraging atmosphere where clients feel comfortable exploring and challenging their innermost thoughts.

Hey there! Therapy can be such an overwhelming process to get started with, especially when you may already be struggling with feelings of burnout, depression, or anxiety that make everyday tasks feel monumental. In particular for Black , queer, or neurodivergent individuals, feeling safe and truly seen by their therapist may be particularly challenging. With over 9 years experience, my approach to therapy is strengths-based, person-centered, affirming, anti-oppressive, and relational. Together we will consider functional strategies to help you close the gap between the life you're living, and the life you want to be living.

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.

I work with people struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, and trauma after unexpected life events. Through my eclectic approach, clients gain a new perspective and free themselves from self-defeating thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Reframing is powerful. It empowers clients to choose a different way to look at their situation so they can find self compassion, acceptance, and peace. As an African American woman, I also understand how race and ethnicity play a factor in mental health. My practice offers strategies addressing racial stress and microaggressions. Let’s find ways to respond, heal, and move forward.

As human beings, we tend to strive towards certainty. We seek certainty in who we are, certainty in our relationships with others, and certainty in how the world should be. However, our need for certainty is often thwarted by the uncertain and fluctuating nature of everyone and everything. Therapy can be a space where the daunting uncertainty is contained. Therapy can be a space where you and I confront the uncertainty together and try to understand what it is trying to communicate to you. Therapy can be a space where we make the leap from uncertainty into safety, trust, and meaningfulness.
