You do not have to suffer in silence with stress, anxiety, and depression. As your therapist, I promise to:

  • Provide a safe space to feel and express your emotions without judgment
  • Honor, acknowledge, and recognize your feelings about your life experiences
  • Provide an objective perspective so you can use your strengths and inner knowing to gain insight into your experiences and challenge perspectives that do not serve you.
  • Respect the fact that women of color face unique challenges when seeking out mental health services.
  • Customize my services to meet your need using proven techniques to include brainspotting, focused mindfulness, and cognitive behavioral approaches.

As author and civil rights activist Audre Lorde states, taking time to care for yourself and your mental wellness “…is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation…” I would be honored to partner with you in caring for your mental wellness.


Businesses and organizations! Would you like to:

  • increase productivity?
  • prevent burnout?
  • increase your employees overall health?

Studies have shown that mental health support can address all of these areas, decreases overall costs, and increases employee morale. I provide personal development workshops and trainings* on topics that support mental health such as general stress management, resiliency, mindfulness, and radical self-care.
