About My Clients

*accepting new clients at this time* i focus on centering the voices of those often forced to society's margins (e.g., Black, Brown + Indigenous folx, LGBTQIA+, trans, gender-expansive people, immigrants/undocumented folx, sex workers, kinky + sex+ folx, people in various relationship structures). healing + liberation are connected.

My Background and Approach

my clinical approach is relational, rooted in healing justice, and is trauma-oppression informed. i engage my work grounded in my identities as a Black queer non-binary femme and view intersectionality as foundational for therapeutic exploration. i offer tools and support to build resilience and improve a sense of safety, belonging, dignity, and community.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

we heal in relationship. we heal in community. activating our personal and collective healing is the core of realizing our capacity for change. through a collaborative therapeutic process, we work together to explore your emotional landscape, experiences, family and community dynamics, social and economic systems that impact this, and identify practices that support your embodied adaptation and healing. together, we hold space for intentional change that grows our "capacity to embody the liberated and just worlds we long for." *email* to see how i might support you in your journey.
