You're carrying the weight of navigating a world that often feels like it wasn't built for you. It can be brutal, the constant feeling of being on edge, the unseen barriers you face daily, and the overwhelming expectation to fit the “mold”. You're not alone. I'm here to help you heal, reclaim your life, and thrive. I understand that navigating these challenges can be incredibly difficult and that they can leave deep emotional scars. As a therapist working with individuals facing these issues, I deeply understand how these challenges can manifest and uniquely impact your life, and I recognize the interconnectedness between them.
My approach is rooted in therapies such as Internal Family Systems (IFS), Brainspotting, and Somatic Experiencing to address racial issues, complex trauma and PTSD, anxiety, and depression. We'll develop strategies for challenging negative thought patterns, managing symptoms, and promoting growth while working toward self-acceptance, and empowerment.
I know it can feel daunting to seek support. Asking for help takes courage and strength, and I'm here to support you every step of the way. Remember, healing is possible, and you deserve to live a life that is rich with joy, inner peace, and resilience. If you're ready to embark on a journey of healing, visit my website to schedule a free consultation.
