I have chosen to specialize in LGBTQI concerns, Black men and teens, and persons living with Depression, Anxiety, Religious Trauma, employment problems, and anger management.
Is your teen son struggling with bullying, thoughts of harming himself, or suicidal thoughts? Do you feel overwhelmed by the demands of family, professional, and personal responsibility? Is your job or career not providing you with a sense of purpose, direction, and growth? Are you having difficulty accepting your sexuality due to family, religious, or community hatred? Have you suffered emotional, spiritual, physical, and/or sexual abuse within your membership with any religious group or house of worship?

Girl, are you tired of all the BS?! Your job, relationship, and family are working your last nerve. Everyone just takes and takes, but what about you? If only you knew how to say "No", without feeling guilty about it. Don't you deserve to go home and have a little peace? You want to standup for yourself, but you fear being labeled the "Angry Black Woman". You are tired of being overlooked in the workplace or having to bite your tongue to appease everybody else. You often feel powerless, stressed, and anxious. After work, you have a glass of wine just to relax. You know you can't keep going on like this, so you consider therapy.

Asking for help takes a lot of courage. You may be feeling lost, confused, anxious, and alone -- struggling to be honest with yourself and the people closest to you. Sometimes you just want to talk to someone who "gets it." I understand the unique experiences of Black, Afro-Caribbean, and other Women of Color, including those who identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community. I am dedicated to helping these women heal from anxiety, depression, relationship conflicts, identity concerns, cultural stress, difficult life transitions, and low self-esteem. I also work with Clinicians of Color who are ready to do some healing of their own.

You’re overwhelmed with expectations and responsibilities. Though you appear to “have it all together,” that doesn’t match how you feel. Having others rely on you is a great compliment, but it also brings heavy pressure. You desperately want change but are afraid of what others will think, if you will be judged or if you will lose relationships. Who will you be if you are different from who you are now? There’s only one answer…YOURSELF; the person you truly are. Learn to set boundaries, invest in your self-awareness, and live by your values. Learn how to take care of yourself & still take care of your responsibilities. (Yes you can)

Challenges are unavoidable experiences that impact the lives of all human beings. Do any of these experiences resonate with you: Are you a survivor who is struggling with past experiences? Are you experiencing a crippling level of fear or anxiety related to your cultural identity (i.e., race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, religious or spiritual affiliation, etc.)? Are you a high performing professional who isn’t functioning optimally within your personal life?

It's too much! Being everything to everyone...even when you don't want to... is weighing you down. If you don't do it, it won't get done. Expressing feelings and asking for help is out of the question. You don't want to be a burden, perceived as weak, or judged. The stress and anxiety are becoming too much and now its time to get it out before you implode (because exploding is not an option). The worries & extra expectations need to go. You need some relief. Let's start by giving yourself the compassion you give others. You deserve an outlet.
