About My Clients

My clients are Black & Brown Creative Professionals, Queer, Change Makers, Nerds, Misfits, and Fat Bodied Folx. Does this sound like you? My clients are ready for growth and change. My clients are done feeling stuck. My clients are not done feeling stuck and need someone to help them get to that next step. My clients are looking for a space that is creative, playful, deep, and affirming to their many identities. My clients value social justice, equity, and cultural competence.

My Background and Approach

You deserve to know that the negative and painful thoughts you have about yourself and your life may be rooted in origins that are out of your control. There are experiences you have had that are also out of your control. Together, we can find ways to take back the power, by giving you the space to ask the question, is this true? is this mine? Does this thought, idea, or relationship actually serve me? I use intuition, pop culture references, and Drama Therapy techniques to help you bring forward what serves you and leave behind the rest. Typically our sessions will include you sharing your experience with me. Maybe we explore that experience as a metaphor. Then what if we bring that metaphor to life, allowing you to explore new options and gain new insight? All it takes is a little bit of curiosity. Join me for a free consultation call.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that therapy is personal, and the political is also personal. When I think about building a relationship that is going to help me grow and be in the fullness of life, I want to connect with someone who is passionate about the things I am passionate about. I want to connect with someone who trusts that my lived experience is real, is valid, and does matter. I want to build with someone who is willing to lovingly challenge my beliefs for the sake of my well-being. If knowing where I stand, helps us to better stand together here are a few millennial hashtags I am happy to share: #Blacklivesmatter #Translivesmatter #FatLiberation #cultivatecreativity #Freepalestine #mentalhealthawareness #stopasianhate #stopallhate #loveislove #geektherapy #afrofuturism
