Are you struggling to process your BIPOC experiences associated with your race? Are your experiences with your race making you feel like no one understands what you are going through? Finding mental health support from a person of color can make it even more challenging. I understand, and I can help. Together, we can heal wounds, build or strengthen skills, navigate life’s challenges and achieve your goals in life.

My goal as a therapist of color is help clients with processing and transmuting their life stories and histories. I work with adolescents and adults who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, concentration issues, interpersonal/relationship conflict, anger, shame, aggression, trauma, family conflict, boundary issues, addiction, emotional dysregulation, low self esteem, life transitions, and behavioral concerns.

My counseling approach is anchored in the use of Integrative Therapies, tailoring the therapeutic process to meet the needs of each client, applying a variety of techniques, tools, interventions, solutions, and methods. I offer a foundation of trauma-informed, collaborative, insight-oriented, client-centered, attachment-based,  multicultural, culturally-sensitive and mindfulness practices, creating an environment of safety, trust, empathy, honesty, and integrity. Clients can begin to learn various pathways towards understanding and processing their pain and lived experiences with resiliency and from strengths-based perspective.

I have partnering with The Loveland Foundation which provides financial assistance to BIPOC women and girls of diverse ethnic and racial groups with access to my high-quality culturally competent therapy and counseling services.
