About My Clients

I work with adults of all backgrounds and experiences, but pay particular focus to those who are navigating trauma, anxiety, life transitions, racial and cultural identity, sexual violence, and gender-based experiences and violence.

My Background and Approach

My approach is anti-racist and anti-oppressive, and I pull from a variety of techniques and frameworks including talk therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, strengths-based, trauma-informed care, attachment theory, and systems theory. I take joy in working with people of all backgrounds and identities. In the past I provided crisis counseling, advocacy, and case management to survivors of sexual assault and abuse. I am intimately familiar not only with the trauma associated with sexual assault, but the often-harmful experiences that follow interpersonally and in the academic, civil, and legal systems. At the center of therapy must be a genuine relationship where you can feel seen and heard, and show up as your authentic self. I value fostering this space, and I pull from my experience to tailor therapy for you. We will work

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

We all deserve to be heard. I know that being vulnerable and honest about your challenges or inner workings can be intimidating, not only in a therapy space but even with yourself. I believe each person already has skills and strengths that have helped you make it this far, and together we can collaborate to develop new skills, while adjusting those that no longer serve you. You are the expert on your experience, and I will work with you as a partner to navigate challenges, heal from pain and trauma, and offer insight from a therapeutic perspective. As a mixed-race (Black and white) woman of color, I know that our intersecting identities shape our experiences, how we process them, and how the world responds back to us. Mental health is just as much a relational experience as it is an individual one, which is why I value creating a therapeutic space to talk candidly about not only what you are experiencing, but the role your identity plays in that experience.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
