As a Black woman therapist in Greater King County, my mission is to empower individuals, couples and families to understand themselves more deeply through healing and growth for the mind, body and spirit.
My clients are African American, Black and other ethnic groups, nevertheless my services are not exclusive to communities of color – though I de-center whiteness and focus my work and research on the lived experiences of my clients. I aim to decolonize therapy with a justice-oriented approach. I work with couples, families, and individuals to develop positive tools and resources to help improve their relational and individual wellbeing.

Hello, I am a Clinical Psychologist and have been practicing for 28 years. I believe healing comes through interpersonal connectedness by developing a relationship based on trust, mutual respect, and unconditional positive regard. For 24 years, I provided mental health services to incarcerated men and women experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma-related concerns, and psychosis, to name a few. I served others with serious mental health concerns facing their darkest moments and was humbled to walk with them on their journey, sharing their triumphs and disappointments. In addition, I teach and supervise clinicians providing therapy.

Within a therapeutic environment that's unique to you, my intention is to support your natural resilience become your potential wellness.

The basis of my counseling style is my belief that people are inherently good, and that with support, most people are capable of great change and personal growth. I believe that the relationship between the therapist and client is one of the most important parts of therapy, and I want to provide empathetic, non-judgmental support as my clients navigate the personal challenges they are experiencing. I believe that people usually seek counseling because something is causing them emotional or psychological discomfort or pain, and that counseling can often help determine the cause of that pain and hopefully alleviate it.

Since 1998, I have been working with individuals, couples, and families and treating issues related to: depression, anxiety, communication problems, interpersonal conflict, trauma recovery, military deployment, abortion recovery, adult children of divorced parents, pre-marital counseling, multi-cultural marriage and many other identity/spiritual crises. I see clients on the brink of divorce rediscover their passion for each other, clients merely surviving with depression/anxiety start truly living again, and clients going through the motions find purpose, meaning and fulfillment in their relationships, in their careers and in their lives. Often 10-14 sessions can lead to significant and lasting change.

To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or zip code into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online or over the phone can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the United States, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist, psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
