I listen first as you are the expert of your life experiences and then provide guidance and a safe holding space to support your healing process.


My therapeutic approach is centered on social justice and feminism-multiculturalism. This means that I make an intentional effort to consider the socio-cultural context of our environment and how that impacts our individual experiences. I am attuned to how people develop and experience various intersecting identities and how this impacts their mental health and their ability to navigate various life stressors.

Specializes in:​​​​

My Mission:
To provide therapy in a safe, open space that fosters growth, exploration, and healing. To provide an environment that allows you to feel fully heard, seen, and accepted.

To guide you toward a place of self-love and acceptance and strengthen your ability to cope with difficult situations in your life.
My Journey:
Coming from a long-winding road of my own healing and years of training and school. I started out as a history education major and then eventually made my way to Psychology leading to a Master’s and a Doctorate in Counseling Psychology.

I am also an Assistant Professor in Psychology and I conduct research broadly focused on the impact of discrimination on mental health, particularly among Black women.

Self-Care Rituals:

I enjoy reading books, being outdoors, spending time with family, and eating yummy food.
