Over time I’ve developed this mindset-- A great therapist will not give you the answers, but empower you to realize the answers existed within you the whole time. I have over 10 years experience working with individuals, families, and groups. Therapy is not one-size-fits all. As a clinician, I will tailor our sessions to emphasize who you are, where you’ve been, and where you plan on going. My style is integrative and faith-based. I generally use psychodynamic, CBT and family systems with active listening to ask the questions that allow you to thoughtfully process trauma, life patterns and break unhealthy cycles. Working with me you will have an accountability partner, a motivator and mirror. I specialize in teaching you how to cope better, challenge negative behaviors and thoughts and improve your view of the world and yourself. Through guided self excavation, you will learn to access tools already within to be a better you.
My purpose and passion rest within my community and culture. A proud Afro-Latina from Queens, NY, I am passionate about millennial mental health and those navigating the immense pressures of adulting while being young, gifted and Black. While I put the ‘A’ in LGBTQA-affirming, I prioritize space for my fellow Christians who desire a spiritual perspective. Working with me, you can expect a balance of comfort, collaboration, comedy and challenge. Whatever your reason for entering therapy, I commend you for taking the step. You always dress for the job you want, so let’s get you dressed for the life you want!
