As a woman of color, I understand the systems we work, live, and do our best to survive under, have short and longterm psychic effects on our mind, body, and internal world; rather than read this as an individual failure of yours, we will work together to think through the systemic nature of your symptoms, as well as their specific individual materialization for you. My experience is that this type of exploration will help with feelings of helplessness, and most importantly, clarify elements that perhaps have always been intuitively experienced by you, but may have been dissociated or discouraged in an attempt to survive or adapt.

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.

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.

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.
