I want to help you not only survive the day-to-day struggles but create an environment for yourself to thrive. I work in collaboration with my clients to build self-acceptance and healthy relationships, process emotions and trauma, and navigate stressors in a way tailored to their wants and needs. I approach therapy in a trauma-informed and culturally relevant way for each client.
I enjoy working with children, adolescents, adults, and families. In our work together, I like to pull from various orientations, including cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, family systems therapy, and motivational interviewing.
I am currently a student in Wayne State University’s clinical psychology Ph.D. program. My research interests include childhood and adult trauma, culturally relevant care for marginalized populations, and community-based participatory research.
