I am a therapist and Black woman but also someone who has been in your shoes as a client. My desire is to make the process of finding a therapist understandable and uplifting for you. I firmly believe we all deserve to feel calm, clear, and whole and doing so with professional help can be even more powerful. Tending to your deeper pain and learning healthy ways of managing it takes courage as it is one of the most transformative decisions a person can make.
Pain is often a sign that certain aspects of our inner life need our loving attention. I am passionate about helping my clients get to the root of their challenges while also reclaiming their unique strengths which help them overcome the legacy of their pain. This pain may be generational, ancestral, self-inflicted or due to a series of upsetting events in your life. As a therapist, I help clients find solutions and regain their balance with an understanding of energy work, racial trauma and the mind-body connection all within a depth approach to therapy. As my client, you can expect a compassionate, soul-centered, trauma-informed and culturally sensitive approach.
After earning my BA in Psychology from San Francisco State University, I earned my MA in Counseling from Washington State University. Subsequently, I received my Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) in Couple and Family Therapy from the California School of Professional Psychology, Los Angeles with a focus on the impact of racism, classism and sexism on caregivers’ mental health and parent child relationships. I am trained in a number of trauma-informed and somatic based approaches including DBT, EMDR, and Trauma Informed Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
