About My Clients

I specialize and am passionate in working with and advocating for young professionals, college students, and people of color.

My Background and Approach

The foundation of my professional perspective is to view things from a systematic, social constructionist, and anti-oppressive perspective. My eclectic clinical approach involves utilizing: Critical Race Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Trauma-Informed Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and Behavioral Therapy. I embrace a collaborative, personalized, and practical approach that integrates cultural sensitivity, compassion, & a sense of humor in which creates an environment that harvests growth/change.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Life can be a tough place, but I've learned over the years that with the right perspective and right kind of help/support, we can overcome much more than we ever imagined possible. In times of stress, we could feel anxious, wish things would be different, and/or can even feel a little hopeless / sad... and that is why I am here. As a person of color, young professional, and first generation graduate-level college graduate in my family, I recognize the struggles of life transitions, complexities of cultural/racial identity, acculturation, and the stress of trying to find a balance between success AND happiness. Hence, I am here to help and support you. Together, we will explore the past, present, and future to help you not only become happy but also successful in numerous aspects of your life. Ultimately, I aim to help my clients find their optimal balance between success and happiness in their lives, and create a life that they feel is authentic and genuine to themselves.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
