Hi! I'm Alvina and I want to commend you on taking this step to start or restart therapy! I can't wait to learn more about you, but first please allow me to share a little about myself and my work with clients. As a teenager I realized the lack of conversations and understanding about mental health within the West Indian community. In my experience anxiety, depression, or self-esteem challenges were easily overlooked due to my age, and gender. The unspoken assumption that there were “bigger problems” to deal with, left me feeling overwhelmingly defeated. I quickly realized that with a safe space I could process the pressure of cookie-cutter life paths and highlight reels. I developed a stronger sense of confidence to cut through the noise and honor my own needs with greater self-love. I hope to provide the same space for you! Together, we will gain insight into your core beliefs, attachment styles, and relationships that may be keeping you stagnant or misaligned to your goals. I encourage you to freely express all aspects of your identity, as I strongly believe that is the key to showing up unapologetically in the world. If you are ready to jump into your self-empowerment journey please connect with me, and let's begin!
