I work with clients who struggle with depression, anxiety, multicultural identity concerns, LGBTQ+ concerns, sexual assault recovery, women's Issues, and family of origin issues.
I am a multicultural psychologist who provides individual therapy to adults hoping to better understand themselves and their unique experiences. I use a collaborative approach to highlight strength and resilience while assisting clients in learning to manage depression, anxiety, body image dissatisfaction, racial trauma, and interpersonal relationship difficulties. I have training and expertise in working with diverse populations, women's issues, religion/spirituality, racial/ethnic identity, sexual orientation identity development and gender identity. I have particular expertise in working with sexual assault survivors and helping navigate through the healing process.
I value empowerment and validation and aim to use a culturally aware approach that provides a safe environment to explore and understand emotions and patterns of behavior. My clinical work is not only influenced by empirical research, but also by my experiences as a first-generation, Black/Caribbean-American woman.
I bring warmth, genuineness, empathy, sincerity and humor to my clinical interactions. I believe we benefit from a welcoming place of acceptance and non-judgment, and I strive to provide this for all clients. I value all aspects of identity and work to ensure a safe and multiculturally competent space.
I do not contract with insurance companies but provide all necessary documentation for clients to submit for reimbursement! My primary location is DC, but I also have some availability in Greenbelt, MD.
