About

**NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS**. I utilize insight and action oriented approaches to support increased understanding of and empathy towards yourself, while also working to implement realistic changes that lead to increased quality of life and relationships. I work largely with clients around identity challenges, centering care for Black, brown, trans/nonbinary and LGBQIA individuals.
I view counseling a process aimed at increasing your awareness and understanding of the interaction of biology, relationships and societal impacts as it pertains to your mental health and stability. I aim to be real, authentic and open as we explore your goals and develop a path towards reaching them.
I hold a post-graduate certificate in Foster & Adoptive Family Therapy. I have extensive training around complex and developmental trauma as it pertains to individual and/or family growth and development. I also have training specific to providing individualized treatment and comprehensive assessments for transgender clients .
