About Khadija

The negative stories that society tells people of color impact their self worth, comfort in their own skin, and relationships. My practice focuses on rewriting those narratives so clients can understand their lived experience, challenge internalized beliefs, and heal from the impacts of racial inequities. As a psychotherapist, I work to empower the disempowered through an anti-racist, anti-oppressive, and intersectional approach. My focus is creating a space for clients to be unapologetically themselves, while gaining the confidence to navigate the world around them. My clients include women of color from diverse backgrounds who are struggling with self love, self esteem, colorism, hair stigma, cultural adjustment, religious identity, and intersectionality. Women of color are hit the hardest with race-related stress, and yet they seldom have the proper resources or tools to heal. In my practice, I help clients disrupt the intergenerational trauma that continues impacting them. When dealing with race related stressors in a world that dismisses these struggles, it’s easy to become discouraged. You don’t need to feel ashamed of your experiences, feelings, or identity. Let’s write a new story together
