Are you currently at a point in your life where you recognize the need for change? Seeking support for your emotional, mental, and physical well-being can be a transformative decision. As a therapist dedicated to working with people of color, I am deeply attuned to the unique challenges and traumas individuals from diverse backgrounds may face. I believe that therapy can be a powerful tool for healing and growth, and I am committed to cultivating safe spaces where you can explore, heal, and thrive.
I understand that taking the step to seek therapy for the first time can be daunting. It is not uncommon to feel fear or hesitation, especially if you come from a background where discussing personal matters has been discouraged. In many families, there is a long-standing belief that "what happens in this family stays between this family." However, I want to assure you that breaking free from this mindset can lead to incredible personal growth and liberation.
In our sessions, I will approach your journey with empathy and understanding. Together, we will work through any fears or apprehensions you may have, and I will guide you in navigating the discomfort that may arise when challenging long-held beliefs. I am here to provide a safe and confidential space where you can openly express yourself without judgment.
It is important to recognize that seeking therapy is an act of strength and self-care. By reaching out for support, you are taking a significant step towards your well-being and breaking the cycle of silence and secrecy. I will be there to support you as you explore your experiences, process your emotions, and develop healthier coping mechanisms.
In addition to my clinical practice, I am proud to hold teaching positions at Columbia University, where I continue to deepen my knowledge and contribute to the field of mental health.
When you feel ready to take the next steps towards a happier and healthier you, I invite you to reach out and schedule an initial consultation with me. Together, we can embark on a journey of healing, growth, and self-discovery.
