As a Black, queer clinician, I have witnessed the mental health challenges that can arise while existing in environments that do not affirm our identities. My practice is dedicated to uplifting the lives and experiences of historically marginalized communities, including Black and Indigenous People of Color and the LGBTQ+ community. My aim is to promote resilience, empowerment, and authenticity by cultivating an affirmative therapeutic relationship.
My work draws from a trauma-informed, intersectional, client-centered framework with the goal of co-creating a supportive container for healing and self-exploration. We will utilize tools to help you gain insight into your life and relationships, and deepen your capacity to be present with distressing emotions. Together, we can create more room for you to meet all parts of yourself with compassion and care.
I have supported adults navigating through challenges with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, self-esteem, substance use, and identity exploration. I completed my Master of Social Work degree at University of Southern California, and previously earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology & Women’s and Gender Studies from Loyola Marymount University.
