About Jennifer

I help Women of Color learn that they don’t need to be perfect and that they should spend everyday making themselves proud, not others.

Counselor in training

Do you ever feel invisible, like no one sees the real you? Do you ever feel like you need to be perfect all the time? Do you ever feel the need to maintain unrealistic expectations to avoid feelings of failure? Do you have negative emotions, people, or habits that are hard to remove in your life? 


If you are reading this, please take a moment and be proud of yourself because you have already started your healing journey. While on this site, you may be experiencing feelings of unsureness, fear, or worry, or asking yourself, what does it mean to have a therapist?

 

My mission is to provide a safe place where you don’t have to be anyone but yourself. An environment that gives you space to talk about difficult life stressors, trauma, and supports your journey in creating more satisfying and healthy relationships with yourself and others. In this space, you can be the you that sometimes goes unnoticed or underappreciated. So please, come as you are because that is more than enough.

You are the master of your own life

I have my bachelors in Psychology and Health. I am currently a counselor in training getting my master’s in Mental Health and Counseling at New York University. I have years of experience working with children and teens of color. I see therapy as a collaborative journey where I use a strength-based perspective to build on the wisdom that an individual already possesses. In our sessions, we will laugh, cry, and grow. Please note that you are the master of your own life, and it’s my pleasure to support you in your journey. I know that no two clients are the same, and I will use a mix of different approaches to meet your needs. Modalities I am mainly use are cognitive behavioral therapy, person-centered therapy, and psychodynamic therapy.
