About My Clients

I specialize in racial and sexual minority populations including those in the African American and LGBTQ community. My clients are motivated, engaged, and willing. They understand that therapy is an investment into self; and that change only comes when one is willing to do things differently.

My Background and Approach

I approach therapy from a trauma-focused, multicultural perspective. I strive to promote healing from traumatic experiences. I do this by collaborating with clients because I believe they are the true experts in themselves. My treatment approach is eclectic in nature as I utilize methods from multiple treatment modalities including EMDR, CBT, DBT, person-centered and brief, solutions-focused therapy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that Black Lives Matter. I believe we need to protect trans kids at all cost. I advocate for the rights and humanity of LGBTQ folks. I believe that abortion, birth control, and sex positive education should be safe, affordable, and accessible to all who need one. I am extremely progressive in my beliefs and will point out how the inequalities in this country contribute to one's psychological distress, and how we can practice liberation and resistance to heal from this social trauma. I am also a huge dork. I will talk about shows Bob's Burgers and the Golden Girls, and connect it back to your presenting concerns. I'll do the same with various memes and viral tweets. I'll also make sports analogies ... so many sports analogies. You'll laugh, and you'll also be comfortable crying whenever that feeling hits. If all of this sounds good, drop me a message. I'd love to hear from you.
