As a Black queer social worker of Afro-Caribbean descent, I work using a strengths-based, and trauma-informed lens, with a deep commitment to anti-racist and anti-oppressive practice. Much of my experience has been working with BIPOC and 2SLGBTQIA+ folks, particularly navigating racial, institutional and relational trauma. But I have also worked with many other communities. I believe that everyone has the ability to heal themselves, and I am passionate about supporting that journey. I mostly rely on emotion-focused, compassionate, somatic and mindfulness-based approaches. I am firmly rooted in abolitionist and liberation-based frameworks, and work from a place of deep love for my communities. ​ I know that seeking support for our mental health is very vulnerable and can feel scary. So, I try my best to create both a safe and brave space where you can be yourself.

Specializing in Expressive Arts Therapy, I extend beyond conventional verbal methods, acknowledging the historical and authentic importance of art in healing for Black African, Africentric, and Black Caribbean communities. I seamlessly incorporate art-based psychotherapeutic practices when assisting both individuals and communities (groups). In 2024, the “School of Expressive Arts Therapy” will be inaugurating its grand opening. The school is poised to commence by providing training for mental health and humanitarian professionals in Expressive Arts practices—non-traditional therapeutic approaches specifically tailored for collaboration with members of BIPOC communities. Stay tuned for details on the upcoming “Train-the-Helper in Expressive Arts” professional development course.
