I love this quote by Maya Angelou: “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” I believe that when we suffer, we are carrying untold, unsorted, uncovered stories in our hearts and souls. I’m passionate about unearthing these stories as a means of healing, where I seek to cultivate different vehicles of expression, connection, and love to communities in creative, therapeutic, and effective ways. I believe that when we heal ourselves, we heal others and heal the systems that shape our lives.
I employ a Black feminist/Womanist lens to guide my relational, expressive, and activist-inspired therapeutic practices. I aim to support clients in creating the intimate, authentic and empowered internal environments that lend to living liberated and joyful lives.
