Life can be messy, change can be unnerving, and asking for help is not always easy. However, you are not alone in your journey. My hope is that together we can reengage connections with ourselves and those we care about.
As a Marriage and Family Therapist trained at Northwestern University, I practice from a systemic, collaborative, and strengths-based perspective. I have found joy working with BIPOC adolescents, individuals, and couples with a wide variety of relationship and mental health concerns. I have experience working with diverse sexualities, relationship structures, and belief systems. My early career has been dedicated to counseling and clinical research focused on trauma, pre- and perinatal relationships, ethnic/racial identity formation, intersectionality, and Black women’s experiences with mental health. I am now working to expand my expertise in interracial relationships and sex therapy.
My theoretical framework stems from emotion-focused therapy (EFT), narrative therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). However, I often utilized an integrative approach in order to support the unique needs of my clients and meet you exactly where you’re at. During our sessions we will take an expansive view of your past and present experiences, identify strengths and areas for growth, and chart a path that cultivates healing and fulfillment. Together, we can unlearn what is no longer serving you and help you reclaim your inner peace.
We might be a great match if you’re seeking a collaborative therapist who is goal oriented, direct, and who appreciates a bit of humor. If it seems like we would be a good fit, I’m happy to offer a 15-minute consultation to learn about your needs from therapy and how I can best support you in your therapeutic journey!
