About My Clients

You're feeling misunderstood and overwhelmed. You feel "other". And our current social and political climate is exacerbating it. You feel like no one gets it. You have such a hard time trusting people, so the idea of taking the first step to start therapy is terrifying. You don't feel like yourself anymore--and sometimes you wonder what that even is. You feel shame. You feel like you simply "don't have time for therapy", but also know you can't continue like you have been.

My Background and Approach

As Black American, my personal and professional experiences allow me insight and empathy into life's multi-layered complexities that require deeper understanding. I provide a healing space that is welcoming to those who hold multiple marginalized identities. I use a culture-centered lens and specialize in race-based trauma. I want to help you feel more grounded, balanced, and resilient. I try to incorporate culturally-relevant information topics into therapy sessions, if requested by my clients. I am especially sensitive to Black clients who practice African Traditional Religions (ATRs) and non-Abrahamic faith systems. Very often, I have been told by these clients that they have felt uncomfortable revealing their faith system to other therapists for fear of being turned away. I want you to arrive as your full, genuine self!
