I am a Black queer femme, who enjoys working with, and supporting folx with a diverse range of sexuality identities and experiences, including queer folx and queer folx of color, and their allies. I am an Associate Marriage & Family Therapist, supervised by Courtney Watson, LMFT & Certified Sex Therapist. My training is in systems-oriented therapy and sex therapy, and I use an eclectic approach informed by feminist, humanistic & narrative theories, to name a few. I also center a social justice framework with all of my clients.
I work with folx in all areas of sexuality, from "alternative" sexualities like kink, polyamory, and sex work, and sexual trauma, as well as more general psychotherapy issues such as mood disorders and anxiety, including post-traumatic stress disorder. Given my training in family therapy and sex therapy, I prioritize relational experiences such as attachment. In addition to talk therapy, I encourage clients' connection to, and utilization of the body and other somatic tools to support healing.
As a harm reductionist both in my personal life and as a professional psychotherapist, I utilize a biopsychosocial approach to helping folx understand and adjust their relationships to substances. I believe in the importance of exploring individuals' biological, cultural, interpersonal and social experiences and the ways they interact with their relationship to substances. Additionally, I am currently in the early stages of training for psychedelic assisted psychotherapy, and intend to prioritize working with folx who represent "marginalized" communities, as I am a firm believer in the importance of access and social justice as tools for healing.
