My Approach to Helping

Everyone has the right to show up how they want to show up in the world. And yet, the stories that society tells people of color have impacted their self worth, ability to feel comfortable in their own skin, and their relationships.

I’m a licensed psychotherapist who works to empower the disempowered through an anti-racist, anti-oppressive, and intersectional approach. My focus is creating a safe, healing space for clients to be unapologetically themselves, while gaining the confidence needed to navigate the world around them.

My therapy practice focuses on rewriting those narratives into stories of strength and empowerment that place clients at the center. This allows my clients to understand their lived experience, challenge internalized beliefs, and heal from the impacts of racial stress and oppression.

More Info About My Practice

Centuries of oppression and racism have had detrimental mental health effects, which are often dismissed or invalidated. I’m a strong advocate for social justice and giving a voice to those who are often unheard.

Groups I Work With

    My clients include women of color from diverse backgrounds who are struggling with self love, self esteem, colorism, hair stigma, cultural adjustment, religious identity, and intersectionality. Women of color are hit the hardest with race-related stress, and yet they seldom have the proper resources or tools to heal. In my practice, I help clients disrupt the intergenerational trauma that continues impacting them.
