I am a mother, creative, historian, writer, and identity navigation specialist working in the clinical mental health space. I am passionate about our pasts, our brains, anti-racism, justice, relationships, and identity. I received my Masters in Clinical Mental Health and Applied Psychology from Antioch New England. I like to take big-picture societal and systemic issues and ground them down to our everyday experiences. I believe that building strong, equitable, and informed relationships, with ourselves first, can begin to shift toxic societal narratives that have created cycles of trauma and suffering for far too long. I practice a theoretical specialty in Liberation Psychotherapy.

I work through a lens of Somatic Abolitionism, structural oppression, racial formation, and intersectional feminist theories while implementing a wide range of techniques based on client needs. Through radical acceptance, stress management, mindfulness, work-life balance, anti-oppression-based psychoeducation, and psychedelic integration - just to name a few - we can begin the practice of finding resilience, healing, pleasure, and joy in our lives.

I am a transracially internationally adopted person who identifies as an Afro-Brazilian, Black American Cis Queer Adoptee. I prioritize working with BIPOC due to the low representation available systemically to receive proper care. (BIPOC -a.k.a People of the Global Majority or Bodies of Culture, LGBTQIA2S+/GNB, the social-justice minded and those within creative communities; including those in poly, inter-cultural/racial and other structured relationships or families.

I study psychedelic-assisted therapy research and am eager for this to become approved in Pennsylvania.

I founded The Good Peoples Group's Center on Interracial Relationships years ago where I have taught for many years. I love to study and am a total nerd. I read, listen to audiobooks, read cookbooks- then cook - and enjoy art and being creative myself in my spare time. I like to travel as often as I am able. I am a mother and a wife, I love all creatures especially dogs.
