***I ONLY ACCEPT CIGNA and AETNA INSURANCE. SELF-PAY CLIENTS ARE WELCOMED***  As seen in USA Today, I help Black and Caribbean individuals, couples, and families navigate the hardships of life. Imagine this! You are having a hard time transitioning in life. You have friendship concerns, family conflict, intimate-partner distress, unfulfilled career choices, and want a safe space to explore how to silence your inner critic. You are reminded of your old self or envisioning your future self, and somehow, today's version of you is not meeting the standard. You want this to change, you need this to change, BUT! There's ALWAYS a but.

It can be quite frustrating when a relationship is not working out the way we wished it would. Sometimes we try to fix the relationship, and other times we decide to go in separate directions. No matter where you are in this process, therapy can help bring the hope and clarity you need to move forward. Growing up in Chicago as a bi-racial African American woman, I was able to see many differences between cultural communities and the effects they had on an individual’s self-love and relationships with others. I decided to become a therapist to help people feel more satisfied in their relationships, starting with self-love!!

As an African American Counselor in Tampa, I am able to utilize my personal experiences with clinical training.
Anger, Depression, Identity, and Vision. These are issues that are running rampant in our communities. They are found in households that make up the Tampa Bay Area. The need is for healing and restoration from a wholistic approach. This means a genuine connection with a Therapist who can truly see the client for who they are, and who they can become. The individuals who I work with want to take ownership of their actions and thoughts. These clients want their life to not be wasted on pain and excuses. Clients who have an appreciation for African American and Hispanic culture would be significant.

We see the effects of bias, black male issues and racism to be areas of extreme emotional trauma.
We accept all clients because at the basis of every heart is a common need to feel balanced, cared about and useful. Trauma makes us feel unbalanced and as if no one cares. Depression re-enforces that we are damaged and not useful. Anxiety makes us afraid to hope in people and even our own abilities. Racism, disenfranchisement, family issues, etc. all of these things make us question our usefulness, our ability to trust and feel the satisfaction of a balanced life. Reaching out for assistance is the first step... applying the Holistic Coaching model takes care of the rest.

In addition as an African American therapist I have a strong belief in multicultural counseling.
Why consider counseling? Because nearly everyone at some time in their life is confronted with seemingly unresolvable personal or relationship issues, significant life changes like premarital needs, or death and crtical illness of a loved one. I am very experienced in counseling persons dealing with mood, anxiety and health related concerns. I believe in counseling as a process where clients are assisted in understanding and disarming feelings that "make no sense" and would be happy to help my clients explore the truth behind the troubling issues in a safe and confidential environment.
