About My Clients

Life can feel overwhelming at times, and no one person experiences the same challenges as another. You are the best expert about your life and experiences and sometimes it can help to get another perspective. Through empathy, active listening and a warm demeanor, I hope to co-create a safe space for you to explore the issues that have brought you to therapy and create strategies to support you as you face them.

My Background and Approach

I have worked primarily with folks experiencing marginalization as they navigate the intersections of their identity—whether it be due to their racial or cultural background, sexual orientation, gender identity, or immigration status. Regardless of who you are, I hope that we can co-create a space to nurture reflection and personal growth. As the daughter of West African immigrants, I understand the challenges that come with being a first- and second-generation American, particularly when it comes to navigating the waters of gender identity, sexuality, class, and religion. My previous work with young adults, LGBTQ+ folks, and survivors of political violence has shaped my practice to be trauma-informed and values-based. My areas of expertise include trauma, anxiety, depression, relationships, LGBTQ+, and POC mental health. I pull from the principles of ACT, CBT, narrative and psychodynamic therapies to collaboratively meet each client’s unique goals and needs.
