In my practice my goal is to support multicultural professionals at any stage of their careers, as they manage the multiple challenges they encounter. I want to help them feel grounded in their personal and professional identities and secure in their abilities to excel and progress in whatever field they have chosen, while caring for themselves in thoughtful and insightful ways.

Professionals work hard to attain and sustain the lifestyle they desire. Unfortunately, there are often stressors and hurdles. For BIPOC professionals especially, these might be due to racial micro and macro aggressions in the work environment.  Unresolved negative past experiences or traumas may emerge as challenges to mental health, affecting both the personal and professional arenas of life. I can help with anxiety, depression, trauma, life transitions and navigating diversity, equity and inclusion in your professional space.

My style is to be interactive and engaging with my clients. In therapy we will talk  a lot. At times I will use breathing techniques, visualizations, mild hypnosis or another somatic technique with you if you are up to it. There will be laughter and sometimes tears.  Therapy with me is real and personal. Sometimes you will enjoy therapy me and other times, I might piss you off, as we dig into something difficult. It’s all okay.   I am always there to support and encourage you. There is no rush, no hurry. No need to be superwoman or superman. We will have to deal with the hard stuff. My ultimate goal,  is to help you get to the place where you feel better in your life again. Where you have moved beyond the trauma, anxiety and depression, uncertainty and confusion. I believe that each person has a deep well of wisdom that they can draw on in therapy. You will draw on yours.   I will help you access that wisdom and build on it to design the kind of success that you want..

Over the years, my work has brought me an immense amount of satisfaction. I especially enjoy hearing from past clients, years after they ended therapy, telling me how well they are doing. I enjoy my work and feel honored that so many have benefited from my services.
