Areas of Expertise
Culturally Centered Psychotherapy
My approach is grounded in an understanding of identity and intersectionality as a means to understand who we are, how we make sense of our experiences, and of the world around us. This creates opportunity to reflect on the ways in which power, privilege, and oppression impact our wellbeing and our relationships.
Experiences and responses to trauma are as unique to us as our fingerprints. My work in trauma processing takes into account the subjective nature of traumatic experience, situates response behavior in a culturally relevant context, and seeks to edit maladaptive scripts about self in response to traumatic events. The goal being to reduce the impact past traumas have on present and future functioning.
Supervisors, like therapists, are all about fit. As an early career therapist, supervision and consultation were pivotal to my professional development. If you are a post-degree therapist pursuing licensure as a professional counselor or psychologist in Virginia or DC, I would love to discuss your unique professional goals and supervision needs.
I provide individual, couples, and group psychotherapy to adults age 18 and older.
Individual Psychotherapy $195-$275 per session
Couples Counseling $245-$290 per session
Pre-martial Counseling $195-$290 per session

Clinical Consultations fees varies
I subscribe to an integrative multicultural orientation and rely heavily on the language and interventions of feminist, interpersonal process, and relational cultural theories, bridging understanding of past experiences and their present impacts. I work to establish a sense of felt security and empowerment with the goal of managing presenting concerns and fostering growth and wellbeing.
My work is grounded in an intersectional framework as a means of reflecting on the ways in which power, privilege, and oppression impact our emotional and psychological wellbeing. This means exploring the contributions of race, class, age, gender and sexual orientation (and other salient identities) to the development of self, career, and relationships (romantic, platonic, and familial). I endeavor to remain aware of environmental and societal influences and their impact, as well as being attuned to issues of diversity.
I have unique expertise in psychopathology and work with clients to prioritize and (re)establish mental health, particularly with members of marginalized communities.
