Hi, I'm Dr. Kali!
I'm a psychiatrist and offer freelance consultation to individuals, political and advocacy organizations, and more around issues of race, identity, medical practice, public health, and conflict stemming from differences.
I am co-founder of Gemma, a platform for women’s personal development and mental health. I am also featured on Showtime's hit show, Couples Therapy, starting in season 3. I live in Washington, D.C. with my partner and pup.
