I specialize in the empowerment of Black girls and women while supporting clients from all genders and diverse backgrounds to support positive self-esteem, individuals who experience ethnic stressors, queer affirming services, and clients experiencing relationship issues. Additionally, I work with clients who are struggling with anxiety, depression, and coping skills.
Clients have mentioned to me that my humorous, open, and interactive style of therapy allows them to speak easily and freely.
