In my practice, I provide individual therapy to adult survivors of trauma, grief, and loss, chronic stress, anxiety, depression, and loneliness. I collaborate with people who want to uproot stigma, stuckness, and what no longer serves in their lives. I support people who want to plant reparative seeds, and who want to grow a life-story that centers healing, radical self-care, improved quality of life, and deliberate joy. I hold specialized awareness to the unique issues of mental health and intersectionality, focusing primarily on racial identity/issues impacting black women, LGBTQIA+ communities, BIPOC, *all women, and allies.

I help these women address anxiety, stress, low self-worth, self-sabotage, and cultural/ racial identity issues, heal from past traumas, build their resilience, understand their life experiences through a different lens, develop new, more compassionate, ways of looking at themselves, and create new strategies for dealing with what’s going on in their lives.
I work with women who despite all outward appearances of success are struggling internally. Some constantly compare other people’s achievements to their own perceived failures. Some struggle to feel confident and capable in the workplace. Some feel disconnected from and misunderstood by their loved ones. Some have a hard time letting go of old patterns that no longer serve them and may, in fact, have adverse impacts. Some find it challenging to love themselves despite their struggles and flaws. Some discover that their normal coping strategies aren’t working anymore and this affects their behavior/ interactions with others.

I believe that our life and cultural experiences, especially our earliest ones, are fundamental in shaping the way we view ourselves and others. It is essential to understand my patient's cultural identity (i.e., race, gender, gender identity, sexuality, class) and how it has shaped their development. Often negative life experiences can create problematic ways of coping and a skewed perception of who we are in the world. This can lead to a variety of issues related to anxiety, depression, shame, rejection, stress, relationship issues, identity development, grief/loss, and sexual intimacy.

No matter your past or present, your haves or have nots, life can be difficult. I believe that people want and need to be understood – to feel validated and acknowledged in the midst of their troubles. Without these moments of understanding, life can feel mundane, lonely, or deeply confusing. At the most troubling times when stress, depression, or relationships overwhelm, change can seem impossible. Yet change is made possible through a trusting therapeutic relationship, and a careful understanding of oneself and others.
