My Approach to Helping

Take the first step! Let's start this journey together.

Because our everyday life can be so stressful, I prioritize bringing a relaxing, calming presence into our therapeutic space. I believe that, whether we realize it or not, we know what is best for our lives and are more than capable of making healthy decisions for ourselves. I give my clients the space they need to realize this and process the past events that have led them to where they are now so we can work together in creating a plan for their futures.

More Info About My Practice

As someone in the LGBTQ community, I am very passionate about working with individuals in marginalized communities. Although I believe the mental health world has come a long way in recent years, we are still far behind in the representation that truly matters for clients. I have seen the hardships People of Color face when it comes to being a part of the LGBTQ community due to its lack of acceptance within the Black community, so I am a very proud ally for these clients who need someone who can truly relate to their life experiences.
