My Approach to Helping

One of the bravest things we can do in life is to seek help when we need it most. It can be difficult to carry our struggles alone, and a true relief to have someone help to hold them. I work with clients experiencing a range of concerns including trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, school or career issues, navigating parenting, life transitions, family conflict, identity development, discrimination, and existential distress. No matter what is bringing you to therapy right now, the key is a desire and readiness to evolve and to grow. This is what can lead to true healing, and the discovery of your full potential.

As a Queer, Black, bicultural, first-generation clinician, I know personally the experience of intersectionality and care deeply about working with others of socially marginalized identities. I am specialized in trauma-informed psychodynamic therapy, and I use a healing justice approach that is warm, supportive, insight-oriented, and empowering.

Through therapy, my aim is to help you build more self-understanding and self-compassion, which will put you on the path to discovering your true self, feeling more whole, and standing more confidently in your own personal power. When you're ready to take the next step, let's schedule a free 15-minute phone or video consultation to see if we're a good match.
