I am a Black, African, non-binary, and queer person, an East Coast transplant, and from a working class background. I graduated from Temple University with a Masters in Public Health and from California Institute for Integral Studies in San Francisco, with a MA in Counseling Psychology, with a focus in Community Mental Health. I utilize relational, narrative, and structural family therapy methodologies. My practice is also strongly informed by black psychology, liberation psychology, and restorative justice practices. I have training in transpersonal and medical hypnotherapy. I have experience in community health education and program development and management.
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist, working in collaboration with Claudius Johnson, LCSW, at Sankofa Holistic Counseling Services. Sankofa Holistic Counseling Services is an Oakland-based mental health practice with a focus on African American health and well-being.
