As a black woman and professional, I felt trapped for years in the superwomen persona while battling imposter syndrome, until I decided to choose me. Are you struggling to be everything to everyone but abandoning yourself in the process? Take the first step and choose self. I can help you develop coping skills, explore racial identity, process grief, eliminate negative cycles, improve relationships, manage difficult emotions, reduce anger, anxiety and stress, set goals, relinquish self doubt, build self esteem, cultivate self-love and compassion, and find peace using a trauma informed, strength based and person-centered lens.

I am also co-founder of a collective of Black Mental health practitioners based in Paris and continue to promote Art therapy/ecotherapy through other NGO work.
My clients are postcolonial, queer, subaltern, disabled, invisibilised survivors of everyday microagressions or complex trauma. Like my clients I am polycultural, multilingual, queer and attuned to queries on acculturation, multiple social identities, identity shifting, parenting minority or neuroatypical children, intercultural couples, as well as accidental, disabling or climacteric transitions. My clients want to come to terms with their complexities — those invalidated because of primary or secondary socialisation. Exploring symbolic language allows for production of new knowledge of self and self-(re)actualisation. Paris based.

My approach to therapy is to be client focused and strength based to help support you in your life choices/concerns. I encourage clients to set small attainable goals to increase self-esteem and independence. This approach will open up possibilities for growth, healing, and overall positive reframing. I work with adults, children & geriatric population to address concerns such as multiculturalism/ black /Latinx concerns, depression, end of life care, anxiety, adjustment issues, change of life concerns, PTSD and mood disorders.

Welcome! As a Black , queer, Trinidadian, first generation American, and cis-gender woman, my clients are primarily BIPOC folx who experience mental health and relational challenges as a result of the history of colonialism, slavery, sexism, White supremacy, and xenophobia that has led to a world of inequity and the fear of "other." I partner with those striving to combat the negative impact of systems of oppression (including trauma, depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem) as we move toward radical acceptance of self, joy, ease, and healing.

I like to tell my clients to think of therapy as a navigation system. You put the destination in the GPS and the GPS guides you in the right direction. Think of me as your guide. My approach to therapy is individualistic. Though clients may be experiencing similar difficulties the approaches utilized must be tailored to fit the client’s needs.

Life can feel overwhelming at times. Some might find it difficult to find the emotional courage to seek psychotherapy when you are already dealing with a quagmire of complex competing loyalties, identities, and personal and political conflicts. Whether you are dealing with the stress of racial identity, cultural integration, concerns related to fertility, substance abuse, or transitions throughout the life cycle, this process does not have to be an isolative experience. Carrying around those frustrations with nowhere to process them can further exacerbate difficulties in daily activities.

In an era where we’re bombarded with self-love messaging from all sides, too many of us are left to struggle with the nagging question: “But how do I love myself?” Some of us—especially those carrying marginalized identities—were never taught. Instead, we were given life scripts urging us to make ourselves small and focus solely on the ways we come up short. The fact that you’ve taken this step to find support is a pivotal moment; you’re acknowledging that you deserve better, and you’re willing to do the work to get there. I’d love to help you with that.

“I have come to believe that caring for myself is not self-indulgent. Caring for myself is an act of survival.” -Audre Lorde I believe the most meaningful form of self-care is a commitment to self-growth and healing. Your relationship with yourself shapes your experience of the world and others, you deserve for it to be a healthy one. Together we can work towards deepening your understanding of your experiences, identifying patterns, and creating a plan for change that honors your needs. I approach therapy from a client-centered, relational lens and believe that all people inherently have the ability to heal.
