Background & Expertise
I have always been concerned with healing and wellness. After my undergraduate degree, I attended University of Colorado Denver’s Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program with an emphasis on working with multicultural and diverse populations. I graduated in 2020 at the height of a global pandemic. I am a National Board Certified Counselor and I am Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Colorado.
As a multicultural therapist, I enjoy working with women, immigrants and BIPOC individuals. I specialize in treating anxiety, depression and trauma. My clients explore the relational images built upon their experiences in relationships and envision new relationships that is authentic to who they are. We create change by challenging negative beliefs and oppressive structures and by engaging in practices and resources that promote healing relational wounds and support growth and resilience. You will gain the courage to live who you are and live a more full and connected life.
Orientation & Worldview
I believe that talk therapy rooted in systemic work, combined with creative expression helps us better address and understand the traumas in our life experiences. It is through this work that I encourage you to embrace the healing process. You will gain the courage to be more of you and live your fullest life. I will meet you where you’re at and support your growth towards a life of meaning.
My African identity is important to me and one of my beliefs is Ubuntu, a South African phrase that literally means a person is a person through other people. I am relationship oriented and I value interdependence, community and humanity. We exist as social beings and the different interactions between us as individuals and members of different groups impact our development and ability to grow and heal.
I am a multicultural clinician because I acknowledge the varied and diverse cultures (and subcultures) of our world and in our personal history. My worldview and perspective also calls out the violence and trauma in the forms of colonization, exclusion and other oppressions at the root of the mental health concerns of groups who have been marginalized.
