My Work

What is standing between you and your ‘best life’?
If you’re like many of my clients, you’re a capable, intelligent, and strong woman. But something’s still missing. You’re burnt out, depleted, and exhausted. Maybe your relationships are suffering. Perhaps you’ve been coping with stress in unhealthy ways, and finding it hard to break out of bad habits. Maybe you’ve been feeling down and just not like yourself lately. 
As a therapist, I’ll work with you to figure out what’s holding you back – and share practical skills and strategies for moving forward. 
I specialize in supporting the mental health needs of African-American, Black identified, multi-ethnic, multicultural and other Women of Color who want to heal the parts of their lives that are hurting, but aren’t sure how to get from here to there. I am trained to work with a wide range of clinical issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, and substance abuse.
I invite you to reach out for a free consultation to see how I can help you.

My Story

I am a native San Franciscan and attended graduate school locally at San Francisco State University. I chose a career as a therapist because of my interest in mental health disparities in low-income communities; and my desire to understand the role and the impact of inter-generational transmission of trauma in families. I love my work and the opportunity to collaborate, explore, and make new discoveries with my clients.

I’m also a huge animal lover!

We’re small now, but we’re growing!
