Clinical Psychologist in Oakland, CA


About My Clients

I work with a diverse clientele and specialize in providing social-justice oriented psychotherapy to Black people and other POC, as well as members of LGBTQIA+ communities.

My Background and Approach

I provide culturally responsive therapy, which focuses on the strengths that you already have. I tend to use a cognitive-behavioral theoretical approach (CBT), while also paying attention to your environment and access to social support. I work with you to build a safe space where you can share your experiences without the fear of being judged, and where you can focus on becoming clear about what you want, and how you want to go about making that happen.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that it is important to build a strong therapeutic relationship, as well as paying close attention to what is happening for you in-the-moment. I find it helpful to work to understand the different beliefs that we bring into the room, and how these worldviews might affect our interactions.
