I'm a young, black, LGBTQ+ identifying psychologist, who's second generation raised by Caribbean-immigrant parents; and I'm originally from New York City. Before moving to San Francisco & Los Angeles, I lived in Miami, FL. I primarily provide therapy to clients between the ages of 18-50, who live all over the state of California.
In our work together, my intention will be to help you break away from the maladaptive thought patterns, emotions, actions, and external circumstances that keep you stuck in an experience you don’t want to be having. My goal is to help you create progress towards the life you do want for yourself. I’ll want to understand the changes you’d like to see in yourself. I’ll want us to identify the behaviors you’d like to execute more often, the chronic emotions you’d like to experience, and the outcomes you’d like to see present themselves in your life. With that information, we'll set the progressive steps & overall goals for therapy.
I couple evidenced-based treatments, wellness perspectives, Eastern theories, a conscious awareness approach - geared towards creating intrinsic & extrinsic progress. Your progress may include improved relationships, increased motivation, stronger sense of self-value, greater career & academic success, a reduction of painful emotions or unwanted behaviors.
I specialize in working with adults who experience depression, anxiety disorders (agoraphobia, panic disorder, social anxiety, specific phobias), OCD, insomnia, chronic pain, relationship challenges, heartbreak, phase-of-life stressors, procrastination behaviors & LGBTQ/Race related challenges.
Full disclosure: I'm very assertive in my therapeutic process. I hold my clients accountable and point out patterns that create or maintain unwanted habits, thoughts, emotions, behaviors or outcomes. I have a very goal oriented approach, I place a higher value on creating measurable progress as opposed to spending extended time deeply developing insight around the past.
