I specialize in working with people around trauma, identity development, anxiety, depression, personal boundaries, mindfulness and negative thinking. I am also very passionate about helping individuals build self-esteem, explore values, improve communication skills and identify unhealthy patterns. I particularly enjoy my work with queer folks of color and am especially committed to supporting individuals from the Black/African diaspora communities. I delight in being a supportive guide for others, as the journey to self-discovery should not be an isolated one.

My therapeutic approach is enveloped in the sociological perspective, as we are not just individual entities, but social beings enmeshed in society. I like to operate through a holistic lens that highlights individual experiences and social backgrounds. I also believe that everyone’s history of development is unique and should be treated as such.

Through our joint effort, we will explore your needs and work towards individual and collaborative goals. I’m incredibly passionate about being a therapist and strive to help others know the true joy that can come from engaging in therapy. If you would like to learn more about engaging in therapy with me, we can set up a brief phone consultation.
