  • I specialize in working with people who:

    My clients are mainly Black women, Muslim women, and women of color struggling with self love, low self esteem, the impacts of colorism, stigma about their hair, and obstacles related to intersectionality.

  • More about me and my practice:

    Centuries of oppression and racism have had detrimental mental health effects, which are often dismissed or invalidated. I’m a strong advocate for social justice and giving a voice to those who are often unheard.
