Welcome!

As a Black queer female psychotherapist, my work is rooted in the fundamental beliefs that humans are resilient and that most people have the capacity to change. My practice is informed by the study of Western psychology and social work as well as West African and Afro-Latino spiritual traditions. I work with people who have any or no religious or spiritual practices.

Why Meliora Consulting LLC? Meliora is Latin for “always better,” and working to improve things for others is my life’s work. Whether I am working with individuals, couples, or multiple-partner relationships, my goal is to enrich the lives of people who are marginalized—with a focus on same-gender loving, indigenous LGBTQI people, and LGBTQI people of color[1]. Those who are marginalized because of their ethnoracial background, gender identity or expression, sexual identity, sexuality, ability, and/or religious or spiritual background are of specific concern to me. No one is turned away because of their ethnoracial background.

[1]“People of color” includes individuals who identify as Arab/Middle Eastern, Asian Pacific Islander, Black/African American, Latino, Multiracial/Biracial, and Native American/Indigenous.
