Caring for people who are searching for self love, (including LGBTQ folks). "If we know ourselves, we are always home anywhere." - The Wiz

Clinical Social Worker in Decatur, GA

About My Clients

I seek to create a safe and inclusive space for black-bodied individuals, LGBTQ+ folks, survivors of trauma, sex workers, and clients who are struggling with relationship and intimacy issues. My approach to mental health care is rooted in anti-oppressive and decolonizing frameworks. The treatment modalities that I use have been found to be effective across many cultures, ages, genders, and experiences. I am here to support my clients in rediscovering themselves and creating a safe place inside.

My Background and Approach

During our sessions together, I will support you in exploring the many parts of you and how they came to be. I will work with you to identify the negative messages connected to these parts of you. We will form a relationship with these parts and create a safe place for all of you to be seen, heard, and understood. In this safe place, you will heal yourself. Developing my own internal resources has helped me to move through some very difficult times as a member of the LGBTQ community. Using evidence based research, I provide care that values every part of you and respects where you came from. In those moments of pain and struggle and self-discovery, I will help you to choose yourself.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Belonging is something that many of us are looking for. Healing our pain in isolation can feel overwhelming. Especially, when we feel unheard, ignored, and disrespected in our homes, at our places of employment, and in the relationships that matter the most. We all want a place that feels safe. I am here to help, please reach out!
