About My Clients

The person you present to the world is likely very different from the person you are at home. Women especially spend the greater part of their lives practicing and perfecting a public persona, while struggling inside with anxiety and depression. I help women and teens live more integrated (honest) lives by examining family, gender, and cultural expectations that don’t really align with who you are.

My Background and Approach

I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), the Grief Recovery Method, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Laughter is an important part of healing as well as the art of storytelling. We do lots of both in my sessions, and clients often leave feeling lighter and more hopeful.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

It's a misconception, especially as a woman of color, that we must always “be strong.” We need a space to take off the armor, to feel the pain, and be justifiably a hot mess. After losing two dear girlfriends to suicide, I thought enough is enough! No more pretending to have it all together. It's scary, but we must face the deep dark thoughts that keep us feeling stuck in our lives in order to heal.
