Since working with Meredith, I have taken walks alone in the dark, stopped looking for intruders behind every corner, and am about to fly by myself. Each one of these is huge for me — and feels like a curated building block for a broader sense of freedom and a healthier soul.

Do you take insurance? I do not accept insurance. I do have a sliding scale option available. If you are interested, please ask!

I see that you have a Ph.D. Does that mean you're a psychologist? Nope! My Ph.D. is from Columbia University in Literature. My doctoral research specialized in trauma and recovery narratives, a topic I went on to teach at Yale. I use that training as a coach to expertly analyze your narrative, but I am not a psychologist.

I see that you're based in Colorado. Can I work with you from across the country or world? Yes! One of the advantages of coaching is that I am not limited to where I can provide services. I work primarily online with clients from all over the world. I use Google Meet for live sessions and Signal for the Postpartum Support via audio messaging.

Do you work with people from backgrounds different than your own? Absolutely! I may look like your classic white cisgender American woman, but I grew up with a Transgender brother and our adopted cousins, I married an African immigrant, and I am raising a Black son. I speak four languages, two of them indigenous African, and I have worked or studied extensively in Africa, Asia, the UK, and Europe. When it comes to cross cultural and/or cross racial interaction, I assume that I can assume nothing; I begin with listening; and I stay up to date with evidence-backed conversations and research on issues affecting historically underserved groups. I see myself as an ally, but more so, as a family and friend.
