Finding the right therapist can be a process. Will they understand your experience? Are they really not going to judge you? Will it be worth it to tell someone all your business? You might not even know where to start or what to talk about, but just know you’re ready for change. Maybe the thing you’re wanting to talk about is something you’ve never shared with anyone before. You’re ready to put in the work and move forward with your life, but sometimes you doubt that change is possible. I specialize in working with women of color (as well as non-binary individuals) around anxiety, dating & relationships, exploring sexuality and improving your relationship with food & body image (such as emotional eating or chronic dieting).
I work with you to explore parts of your current identity and past experiences in an effort to understand where you might be stuck or holding on. I hold expertise in helping clients heal from experiences of trauma such as a controlling or abusive relationship, or things that happened in childhood. I know how hard it is to trust someone new and don’t take that lightly.
I aim to create an environment that is validating, nurturing and gently challenging. Together we will uncover your strengths and rebuild your self-esteem, creating the space to recognize patterns that are no longer serving you and establish new ways of coping. Reach out to me to schedule a free 15-minute consultation. I look forward to hearing from you!
