"Finding competent help as a female Black professional or POC can be difficult. Will my therapist understand the ways in which race, ethnicity, and gender play a role for me? Will my therapist be able to appreciate me as a whole person with a unique background? You've worked hard to get where you are in life - and while you recognize your achievements, you know there are roadblocks you still have to overcome. Maybe you are dealing with depression, anxiety, or a history of trauma. Or more every-day problems like family and work stress, interpersonal struggles, lack of a community, racism, sexism, and life transitions. "

"Finding the right therapist is difficult, isn't it? So hard to tell from reading the profile if she will be a good match for you. Perhaps you are asking yourself questions like "Do I really want to do this?", "Can I speak freely to a stranger?", "How do I know she will understand me and my issues?", or "How does therapy work?" It's understandable to have reservations. Call/e-mail me to set up a free, no obligation session and we can address your concerns. You'll be able to tell if you feel safe and heard."

"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. "
