About Me

By virtue of holding space for you to make meaning out of your experiences, intersections of identity, and personal and ancestral past, I provide culturally-specific service offerings that align with your desire to unify mind, body, and spirit, healing both present and intergenerational wounds, and connecting with self, others, and surroundings. I specialize in providing culturally affirming services for teens, transition aged youth (TAY 18-25), and adults who identify as African American, BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color), multi-ethnic/racial/cultural, Neurodivergent/Neurodiverse, Disabled /differently abled, LGBTQIA+, and/or from traditionally marginalized communities. https://www.yaarahtherapy.org/
