I am a Creole/African-American individual who grew up in a mixed-race household in the Bay Area, a setting that allowed me to observe how I was perceived within the context of my own family, and in the context of the world around me. My identity is a direct byproduct of the joining of privileged and oppressed identities, and allows for me to better identify the unique ways in which others navigate their relationships based on their own identities.
During our work together, we’ll take a look at the stories you tell yourself about yourself. From there, we’ll see which stories are working for you, and which stories you want to rewrite. Whenever appropriate, tools will be identified to help you navigate specific difficulties you might be facing.
My belief is that people are comprised of various identities which inform how they navigate their inner world, as well as the world around them. My practice is anti-racist, and I am sex-worker inclusive, sex-positive, and affirming of LGBTQ+ identities. All relationship and family structures are welcome in my practice.
My work is informed by the following modalities:
M.A. in Marriage, Couple, and Family Therapy, with a specialization in Sex Therapy from Lewis & Clark College in Portland, OR
B.A. in Psychology, with a minor in Women's and Gender Studies from Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA
