You belong here. You are accepted here. You are welcome here. Not for your production or what you can do. Not because you are strong and resilient. Not because you’ve learned to put others before yourself. You belong here just as you are, all of you.
As a clinician, I provide my clients with the space to explore the weight they are carrying using person-centered and Feminist therapy. At the core, I value collaborative relationships grounded in trust, each person’s authenticity, and an honoring of each person’s lived experiences. With Feminist therapy, we discuss intersectionality, identify development, socialization, and oppression in order to promote empowerment and cycle breaking. I enter our collective space authentically as a Black woman and invite my clients to authentically enter as themselves as well.
I also honor and value cultural healing through work with intergenerational and transgenerational trauma. This means I may journey with my clients to explore their childhood, attachment, or past traumas and the traumas of their generational culture.
I stand for rest. I stand for restoration. You are allowed to let go of who you think you need to be to become who are and find your way home.
