Fear interrupts our capacity to build and sustain growth fostering relationships...but it doesn't have to.    I am a clinician, researcher, and educator who believes provocative conversations build community, expand perspectives, and result in ALL people feeling more loved.


As a trainer, facilitator, & coach I partner alongside individuals, groups, and organizations to expand their definition of diversity and calibrate the space we inhabit together.  This allows us to identify clear goals linked to increased awareness of individual, team, and organizational strengths and growth edges.

I am currently accepting 1:1 coaching clients and requests for group training/workshops facilitation.  


My research and clinical work specialities include racial trauma, women's wellness, and resilience with an emphasis on promoting health equity for the Black community.  I practice with an integration of Time-Limited Dynamic Psychotherapy (TLDP) and Relational Cultural Theory (RCT) to help my clients identify relational patterns hindering their capacity for a life well-lived.

I am currently accepting adult (18+), individual therapy clients (Utah residents only).

In all spaces, I help develop critical consumers of knowledge and enhance individuals' capacity to have activating conversations with bravery.  Excellence is what we deserve from each other.  Even when you feel afraid, remember: "You have ENOUGH for today."
