The nature of psychological services to you will depend on your needs. First and foremost, it is important to see if we can establish a good working relationship as it is the best predictor of a good outcome. Your treatment will involve a collaborative effort and will require active work from both of us. My general orientation is psychodynamic. In brief, this type of work involves seeing how past family of origin and developmental factors might be affecting the issues that bring you into therapy and be impinging on your ability to have a more satisfying life.

Accepting new clients! You feel like you have had your power and your voice taken away for your entire life. You are exhausted from not being seen as a human first. You are about to explode from so many years of hiding who you are, who you love, and what is pissing you off. You are ready to step into your power, but you have no idea how to start. Or maybe you do, but you need someone supporting you as you navigate all of the complex, heavy sh!t that is about to unfold. I want you to know that I see beyond your struggles and past choices. I want to empower you to embrace your entire self (yes, your ENTIRE self). You can do that here.

I believe how humans experience growth and how they change are the big themes of psychology. We grow and change through our relationships with others, but sometimes we can get stuck in certain relationship patterns that cause distress. Uncovering the dynamics of these patterns, how they affect our self-concept, our feelings, our understanding of others, and our nervous systems can be healing. Practicing new patterns of emotion, thought, and behavior, whether through talk- therapy, mindfulness practices, or a combination of both, can assist growth and change toward more compassion and connection in our lives.

When we are in the middle of finding out about ourselves, solving the problems that we sometimes have no solutions, or mourning what life has brought us, we are growing- Mentally, Emotionally, and Spiritually. Therapy is a place where you can embrace all those things through holding space for wellness and healing. As a clinician who specializes in the healing of Black and Brown people, I ensure that I use therapy modalities and the lived experience to assist in the healing process.

Relationships can be hard. They can be a source of tremendous joy and excruciating pain, sometimes both at the same time. They can end before we are ready or they can last longer than we would have wanted. I believe that healthy interpersonal relationships are an important part of mental health and that the most important relationship, the one that makes all the other ones possible, is the one we have with our own self. Sometimes it can be hard to figure it out all on your own which is where therapy can help. It is another relationship after all, albeit very different from the others.

I specialize in treating adolescents through young adults, and I have extensive experience working with depression, anxiety, suicidality and self-injury, and Borderline Personality Disorder.

I specialize in working with children (as young as 2 years old), adolescents, young adults, and families. Even when I am working individually with a child, I involve parents in every session so that the whole family learns new skills and communication patterns. As a parent myself, I understand that when our children are suffering, we suffer. I seek to support the entire family on their path toward change and better health. We often hire coaches or tutors to help our children develop in sports or academics. I consider myself an emotion coach, here to help children and parents navigate their emotional worlds and achieve their goals.

I believe therapy is the process of getting to know and like yourself better. By looking inward, we discover how we support or undermine ourselves with thoughts, feelings, habitual body patterns and behaviors born out of pain and trauma. We start to distinguish our authentic self from who we think we need to be. When we have more information about ourself and more freedom to be authentic, we can then begin to make changes to better support ourself and create a life that is fulfilling.

Are you feeling stuck or overwhelmed and not sure where to find the support needed to reduce those feelings? Being a teenager or young adult is challenging time in life where a yearning for independence is often in conflict with the expectations of family, school, and peers. It can feel even more difficult to maintain this balance when you are struggling with mental health symptoms such as depression or anxiety. I am a therapist that is passionate about helping youth and young adults become more secure in their own identity while recognizing how they impact the world around them.
