As a therapist, my approach is humanistic, relational and compassion-focused. I identify as a cisgender, heterosexual Black woman.
Black women-identified people have a unique experience of oppression at the intersection of race and gender. We experience racism, sexism and misogynoir. Black women are often silenced, shut down, marginalized and told our feelings do not matter because we have to “be strong.”
I believe that true strength lies not in avoiding our emotions, but learning how to accept them as a part of our full experience as human beings. I offer a safe space for Black women-identified people to be their full self without having to censor, make themselves small or code-switch. I believe that mental health and emotional wellness is freedom. I believe that Black people deserve to be free.
