Therapy Style

I am an Afro-Caribbean immigrant psychotherapist who has served communities of color for over 14 years.

I specialize in treating depression and anxiety disorders, and I am highly trained in trauma-informed care, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Strength-based practice and mindfulness.

I believe that besides providing a safe space to process, healing can also come through psychoeducation, movement work, ancestral healing/breaking generational traumas as well as community engagement. I include these modalities in session when appropriate as I understand that unique individuals require unique ways of healing. Let's heal!

Salsa dancing, interior design, and fashion styling.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

Meditation, journaling and spending time in nature.

What book have you read more than once?

Favorite organization/non-profit?

Venceremos Brigade - Through this project you are able to travel to Cuba, work alongside Cuban people and learn more about Cuban day to day life and social systems. It brings aid to the island and a fresh perspective to foreigners who often don't have access to firsthand see and learn about life island. As a Caribbean person who lives in the United States, learning about how the island approaches healthcare, social work and education was truly enlightening and inspiring.

How do you recharge?

I recharge by spending time in nature.
