The function of art is to do more than tell it like it is-it’s to imagine what is possible.” - bell hooks

The Black Joy Project

"After waking up feeling real heavy one day, I decided that my Social media timelines needed some smiles amidst the sharing of important information, thoughts, art, photos and videos that can be upsetting and at its worst depressing and traumatizing. I posted a picture of my mom smiling and asked for others to post their #BlackJoy moments. Then I decided to give myself a 30-day personal challenge (that I kept to myself) to share photos of joy. After a few moving responses, it seemed right to make this a regular installation and share it more openly. It's been over 100 days of working on reconciling with the chaos that can be caused for being Black and queer in this country and the understanding that even finding a reason to smile is also a form of resistance in a system that was never designed for us to thrive.I invite you to post moments of joy when you feel moved to do so." - The Black Joy Project

People of Color & Mental Illness Photo Project

This photo project stems from the lack of media representation of POC (people of color) and mental illness. There are tons of articles that list people with depression and other mental illnesses but you rarely see someone who looks like you. We need to change the way this is represented. This is not something to be ashamed about. We need to confront and end the stigma. This is a NOT a white person's disease. This is a reality for so many people in our community. - POC & Mental Illness Photo Project

National Eating Disorders 

Eating disorders, such as bulimia, binge eating disorder, and anorexia, are serious illnesses that involve extreme emotions, attitudes, and behaviors surrounding food, exercise, and body image. Contrary to common stereotypes, eating disorders affect all kinds of people, regardless of gender, ethnicity, age, socioeconomic status, sexuality, or background. In fact, 30 million Americans will struggle with an eating disorder at some point in their lives.

But despite the staggering number of people affected and the reality that they have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness, eating disorders often live in the shadows and most people don’t get the help they deserve. -NEDA

Counseling For All Seasons 

I am a POC, intersectional feminist with progressive views with a lot of visible tattoos. I make that very transparent from the start because I believe that while many therapists come from the school of thought that therapists should be a blank slate, for me that idea is antiquated. While I will not tell you the story of my life, I believe it is important for clients to know who they are working with especially for clients coming from oppressed communities. For many clients, working with a therapist who they know holds similar views is important for healing as then therapy can be a space that can provide true validation. - Counseling For All Season

One of the highlights of my Yoga journey was the opportunity to work with Pennington on the #Iwontcompromise campaign.
