Message to clients

I am dedicated to providing culturally responsive and identity-affirming therapy to BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ communities. More specifically, I focus on Black women and other Women of Color. I work to create a space where you can feel validated and empowered by acknowledging the issues of power and privilege that affect women and other people whose identities have been marginalized in our society.

I use solution-focused and family systems therapeutic approaches. I specialize in working with women's issues, parents of children with special needs, pre & post-natal mental health, and clients navigating the intersections of culture and social justice within love relationships, friendships, and educational & professional settings.

Therapy is collaborative. You need to align with the essence of your true self to achieve a peak level of wellness. I look forward to working together to identify the strengths you already have and develop strategies for your personal growth.
