For Radical Black Bodies Who Desire to Heal

As a Black queer femme therapist specializing in reproductive mental health, racial trauma, and radical healing for Black bodies, my positionality is rooted in the recognition of the systemic and historical injustices that impact the mental health and well-being of Black individuals. I acknowledge and honor the diversity of Black experiences, including the intersections of race, gender, sexuality, and ability, and strive to create a safe and affirming space for all individuals seeking support. My approach to therapy centers on empowering and validating your lived experience and prioritizing your agency in the healing process. I am committed to promoting reproductive justice and the dismantling of oppressive structures that disproportionately harm Black communities.
