About My Clients

Are you feeling sad or anxious but put up a good front? Are you on the outside of your own life looking in? Are you struggling to achieve the results you want? Do you have trouble projecting into the future? Together you and I will figure out what is really going on. There is a reason for those feelings and we can uncover it. I see & hear you.

My Background and Approach

Before we begin, I need you to look forward. What will things look like when we have worked well together and resolved your issue? Describe how things are different, in a way that you and I can recognize the changes when they happen? Once we have set our eyes on the prize, we come back to the here and now, and the challenge. Every session I'll ask "what do you want to work on today?". And then, we'll dig in and listen, deeply to what is going on, how you see things, and what you need to feel better, and more at home in the world.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Personal change doesn't necessarily impact the roots of systemic violence in history or society. But we need to care for ourselves and thrive despite of it, so that we may have the opportunity to see and contribute to meaningful change. I have found that power comes from knowing more about where and what we come from, recognizing the circumstances we face, deciding what we make of them and working ourselves free enough to thrive in spite of them :) There is tremendous power in our struggles! As a teenager I suffered from anxiety and depression. Growing up black, a child of survivors of political trauma, I struggled with silences , identity, meaning and belonging. Older, I was bullied in the workplace. Through my own therapy, academic and creative work I have worked through issues of violence: decolonization, spirituality, trauma, migration and reconciling with our own stories first. I no longer suffer from anxiety or depression. Instead I teach, coach, counsel, write and perform.
