I specialize in helping couples, families, and children. As human beings, we have a need to feel connected to a significant other who becomes like a safe haven and a source of security and comfort. This person helps us to face the world with confidence because we know there is someone who cares about us. When we feel disconnected from our attachment figure, we feel unprotected and life's challenges seem to be bigger and scarier. I help people to feel secure in their relationship by strengthening their bond so that they become responsive, accessible and emotionally engaged to their partners.

I work with clients who exhibit a compulsive, chronic, physiological or psychological need for a habit-forming substance, behavior, or activity. Needs may vary. The most common is to change or discontinue the addictive behaviour or substance use. Goals may range from harm reduction to complete abstinence. Most of my clients want to regain control over their lives through changing their behaviours, substance usage, perceptions about who they are and what they need to live a healthy fruitful life. Some clients have had trauma in their lives and need open discussion, compassion, non-judgmental treatment and trauma informed care.

To schedule your first visit with me, please use this online scheduling link - (https://portal.geneticforesight.com/book) --- I believe that each person has a unique purpose. Life presents with situations where depression, addiction, anxiety, eating too much, eating too little, low self-esteem, and no self-identity can distract a person from finding this unique purpose. I like to explore a variety of issues that keep you from experiencing your purpose in life and help you find your meaning and make sense of that meaning.

All people deserve to be heard, especially the Black voice. So many times our voices have been silenced. Some of us come from backgrounds of poverty, racial discrimination, abuse and/or neglect. These traumas have negatively impacted our lives and how we see ourselves. We are all constantly in a never-ending journey of self-discovery. Our life experiences leave us with several unanswered questions. When will things get better? What does true healing look like? What does success really mean?
