Specialties: teens, parents, women of color, anxiety, history of trauma, identity development, mixed race
I have a PhD in Clinical Psychology and have over 15 years of experience in clinical psychology. While I advertise my expertise with adolescents on my website, I also love working with women of color.
I believe your struggle is your strength! My stance with my clients is a combination of finding strengths and exploring how our past may show up in our current behavior. I like to help my clients see that things that may be viewed as faults or failures from the past can actually be untapped strengths and a source of resilience.
It’s also very important to me to talk about how societal oppression (of race, gender, sexuality, income, immigrant status, etc) impacts our ability to heal. Racial identity and the mixed race experience are specific areas of my expertise.
You can schedule a 30min phone consult from my website so we can try to see if we’d be a good fit!
