M.S and Counseling and Art Therapy Intern
Multilingual in English, French, Haitian Creole, and Spanish

You may feel unseen or unheard and are seeking to work through complicated situations or emotions. In times of uncertainties, unrest, and societal difficulties, I am committed to assisting you in bringing forth your strengths and in valuing your holistic self.

I am a licensed Art Teacher and a Clinical Counseling/Art Therapy Intern who has worked extensively with children, adolescents, and young adults in hospital, school, and community mental health settings. I speak English, French, Haitian Creole, and Spanish, and I am passionate about working with people from different intersectional backgrounds. As an immigrant myself, I value different unique perspectives and cultures. I am also a fierce advocate for overlapping social identities and oppressed communities. I strongly believe in the power of solidarity and feeling understood while overcoming and dismantling systemic stressors.

I encourage embracing our genuine selves and am passionate about reclaiming our narratives. My practice emphasizes collaboration and open communication that centers around your experiences. I also love incorporating creative arts, hip-hop, and spoken word into our therapy sessions in order to allow you to express your most authentic self and feel empowered.
