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 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.

It has always been difficult to exist in the world as a LGBTQ/GNC person, and especially for people of color. Society is finally attempting to pay attention to Black and Brown existence, but maybe that spotlight has reminded you that mainstream cultural values tend to leave non-normative identities left out, unseen, and isolated. A history of trauma and/or mental health issues can further complicate healing and acceptance. Even within our own microcosms, like partnerships, friendships, and relationships, identity can be erased, misunderstood, and dismissed, despite our ability to locate who we are and what we need within ourselves.

I went into this field because I noticed the lack of representation within the Mental health community as it pertains to the Black community. I feel our community (and POCs) could benefit from culturally competent counseling that centers their individual experience and identities. Generational trauma and systemic racism have severely impacted the lived Black experience. Stress levels that are associated with being Black in America, can be linked to health disparities. Lack of representation, mistreatment, lack of knowledge, and misinformation of mental health within the Black community is enough to want to contribute to the change.

I cater heavily to both Muslim and Black populations providing therapy with both cultural and religious competency and humility giving space for clients to find their own voices in a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental space.
Therapy is more than just a conversation. It is a guided process of conscious learning and unlearning to actively work in finding the root of your pain. The process may be a difficult one, but I vow to hold space with you as we move through that discomfort into a place of growth and contentment. Utilizing Emotional Focused Therapy & Narrative Therapy, I work with my clients in individual, couples, and/or family therapy to help them find power in their own narrative, identify their deeper emotional experiences, and rewrite their stories.

You don't want to feel beat down, let down, depressed, overwhelmed, out of control, broken or ashamed. But the daily experience of your life being undervalued by society on top of the difficulties of work, relationships, and personal struggles just seems like too much. You feel like relationships won't work, it's impossible to stop circumstances from getting you down, and you can't win for losing. You doubt who you really are. You question the strength within you, the courage you were born with, and the wisdom from those before you.

On life’s journey we are constantly growing and developing. Whether young or old, life is a journey that usually entail efforts of trying to understand divine will. We often question our purpose in life, especially during challenging times. To keep it real, in many cultures/communities, such as the African American (Black) community, we might have been taught to either “pray” about our situations, issues, and emotions or “suck it up and keep it moving.” This can create negative energies such as anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, and other mental health issues that need to be addressed in a healthy manner.

My practice was created with delicate intention to center and cultivate inner healing and wellness in black and brown women and couples in NYC.
What if I told you that all you have, in this moment is all you need to achieve the healing and relief you are seeking?  That you have within you blueprints of healing, wisdom, survival, joy, possibility, and potential because of who you are and where you’ve been? I hold a deeply dynamic view of the human condition. I practice primarily from a psychodynamic + narrative framework. I fundamentally believe in autonomy and freedom; our pasts, the richness embedded within the stories we tell, and am fascinated with unpacking the root systems of the beliefs, narratives, definitions we hold close.

I strongly value inclusivity, liberation, and respect--values I incorporate into my work by staying centered in a Black feminist and HAES perspective. My clients arrive in therapy coping with trauma, depression, anxiety, and grief. Together, we work not only toward developing healthy coping skills, but toward healing for a sense of purpose, contentment, and peace. Therapy is an excellent place to affirm and internalize a greater sense of self worth and to practice a compassionate attitude toward yourself.

Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in New York, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in New York listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
