I've always had a passion for working in the mental health field. Growing up in the inner city, I recognized the detrimental effects that untreated mental illness and trauma can have on individuals, families and communities. Having this insight, coupled with my awareness about the stigmatization of mental illness and treatment, particularly in communities of color, has been my driving force for becoming educated and trained to become a clinical practitioner. Given these points, I believe that the representation of BIPOC mental health practitioners is a catalyst for overcoming the stigma of mental illness and treatment in BIPOC communities.
My clinical strategy can be considered a bottom-up approach. Namely, my focus is on helping you to identifying the roots of your present-day issues (i.e. unprocessed trauma) and to start your healing from there. Using a bottom-up approach helps to move you from just managing your distress to experiencing relief.
I am trained on several modalities but the primary model I use is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR). EMDR is deemed to be one of the most effective therapeutic strategies for treatment PTSD and trauma. EMDR focuses on the brain and its ability to heal itself, under the right conditions.

My goal is to create a therapeutic experience that is person-centered, and trauma informed. I believe that people are the experts of their lives and have the desire and ability to formulate solutions to their problems. Accordingly, I deem myself to be your co-healer as you are on your journey towards mental wellbeing.
