Profile
“I became a therapist to provide a safe space for healing and to partner with people who often feel alienated and harmed by mental health systems.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
As a Black person, as a woman, and as a queer person, I experience and witness the impact of mental health concerns within the context of my identities. I became a therapist to provide a safe space for healing and to partner with people who often feel alienated and harmed by mental health systems. I started my career in community mental health settings, serving youth, BIPOC, and LGBTQ communities. I have also worked in school-based and university settings. I have specialized training in DBT, which has broadened my ability to help people reduce mood, anxiety, and trauma symptoms.
What should someone know about working with you?
My intake process focuses on understanding your symptoms, your current life stressors, and your family history. I am interested in knowing what you have been going through and the path that you took to get here. You will know that there is progress when you have more clarity about your symptoms, the ability to identify and define them, increased hope for change, and strategies for coping.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am very excited about the increase in telehealth services. Because of the disparities in mental health services for BIPOC, LGBTQ and nonbinary folks, and women, this is a necessary vehicle for increased access. Increased access to telehealth is a positive step toward inclusion and equity.
