Do you ever feel like you're trapped in the life that you're living, and can't make it out to find your life worth living? Do you find yourself getting hooked on thoughts, feelings, or situations that get you down? Are you having difficulty coping with racial stress and trauma, or has your child experienced the sting of racism and discrimination? I am here to help!
I am a child-trained psychologist who currently sees individuals of all ages. I am foundationally trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and am also skilled in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI) for health challenges. I am also a published author on racial socialization and race-based stress/trauma interventions, and incorporate these into my practice, as well as principles of feminism, multiculturalism, and anti-racism.
I am currently licensed in Utah and am employed at the Utah Center for Evidence Based Treatment. I am also available for diversity-informed wellness conversations for businesses, non-profit organizations, and community partners through my co-founded LLC, The Black Clinicians.
