As a Black, queer, second-generation Trinidadian-American, my lived experiences have highlighted the ways in which systemic oppression can create trauma, including ancestral or intergenerational trauma. My trauma recovery work comes from a culturally affirming perspective. It can be scary to start to process traumatic events, but I’ll be by your side on your healing path. One area of my professional focus is on healing from eating disorders and negative body image. My work with adults in addressing these things involves learning to let go of shame. We examine all the ways that racism, transphobia, fatphobia, and ableism have affected our body image and behaviors. I want to assist those I hold space for in releasing oppressive views and claiming real freedom. My approach is gender affirming and from a Health at Every Size framework. If you're ready to dig deep knowing you'll be supported by me, let's do it!
