My Approach to Helping

Relationships are an essential part of life, whether it be romantic, platonic, familial or the relationship with one's self. My clients include couples seeking pre-marital counseling, parents in need of co-parenting support, parent-child therapy (adults), and women of color who struggle with interpersonal relationships due to depression, anxiety, self-esteem, workplace stress, etc. I also explore how racial identity and culture affect one's various relationships.

If you're looking for a therapist who provides a therapeutic space that is empathetic, supportive and validating, while being culturally considerate, I’m here to support you...Yes, you! Especially if you are a BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) individual or couple. I provide support that is often difficult to find. I use evidence based therapeutic modalities with the overall goal to empower my clients to lead fulfilling lives and unlock the best version of themselves. If you are struggling internally or within your close relationships and need a compassionate and collaborative therapist, I am offering virtual only sessions at Kensho Psychotherapy Services.

More Info About My Practice

My own experiences as a first generation Caribbean American navigating difficult familial relationships drives my desire to support others with relational struggles. In certain communities emotional expression may not be welcomed or understood, and I have dedicated my professional career to counseling and educating on how to navigate relationships in a culturally sensitive way. My ability to empathize and relate to my clients offer a safe space for my clients to share core values, beliefs and thoughts that contribute to negative interactions with themselves and others.
