About me

Hello! I am a Guyanese-born Indo-Caribbean therapist based in NYC. My hope is to provide a gentle and affirming therapeutic space where those I work with can be their most free and authentic selves.

I offer a safe environment in which others can feel wholly supported as they tap into their natural gifts and skills to meet their unique needs, navigate life stressors and challenges, and find healing within themselves. I am very client-led as I believe each person is the expert of their own life. The relationship we build is sacred and I honour the identities and experiences each individual brings with them into the room.

I have extensive experience in working with survivors of DV/IPV and sexual abuse, immigrants, LGBTQ+ individuals, neurodivergent individuals, people of Indo-Caribbean/Indian Indenture and South Asian descent, and communities of colour across NYC.

My approach is intentional in decolonizing and divesting from common practices in the mental health field rooted in white supremacy, and instead aims to follow non-traditional ideologies based in radical, anti-oppressive practice that centers ancestral and intergenerational trauma healing, especially for historically oppressed BIPOC communities.

As a Guyanese immigrant, I am passionate about being in service to my own community to provide therapy to members of the global diaspora of Indo-Caribbeans and Descendants of Indian Indenture in order to directly address nuanced issues specific to these communities.

In our collaborative therapeutic work, I use a trauma-informed lens and culturally sensitive and progressive methods and modalities including art therapy, drama therapy, and somatic, psychodynamic, and Brainspotting practices that integrate the natural mind-body healing processes with your innate skills and inner wisdom. Together, we will not only work towards making positive and lasting changes in your life, but also be in pursuit of transformative healing and your ultimate self-liberation.

I am currently accepting new clients and offer individual psychotherapy sessions via telehealth for adults (18+), with priority being given to Black and Brown women, gender non-conforming individuals and those with LGBTQ+ identities. I invite you to connect with me, especially if you’re looking for something different from the run of the mill approaches out there in the therapy world, seeking decolonized mental health care, and feel we might be a good fit!

My native dialect is Guyanese Creolese/Patois — yes, this is a legitimate language in its own right!

We deserve mental health care from practitioners who speak and sound like us!
