My passion and my training work to aid you in defining your truths and walking boldly in them. Wellness is achieved when you can look at your worn-out shoes and esteem them for getting you this far instead of despising the road that damaged them. Be well.

I'm an experienced,reliable and compassionate psychologist who works with clients to lessen depression and anxiety, gain emotional strength, and work through problems at home and at work. As people learn how their experience has impacted their lives, they gain insight that leads to understanding. As they gain control, they make changes in their relationships and quality of life. I work with children, adolescents and adults who are Caucasian, African-American, of diverse ethnicities nationalities and religions. My experience is that being in therapy with a person who is listening closely to what is happening and how you feel about it is empowering.

One of the greatest things about counseling is that you have everything you need to initiate the change you want to see in your life. I would love to help you navigate in uncovering those resources. I don't have the power to give you anything you don't already have but I can encourage you to empower yourself in discovering those tools you may have forgotten you had or never fully utilized.It is my personal belief that all of us have a purpose and our lives are most fulfilled when we walk in that purpose.

You may be fed up with juggling all of your responsibilities, struggling to keep romantic relationships going, and trying to fix things by just “working harder.” You might not even remember a time things didn’t feel this way. But one thing for sure: you’re ready for some relief. You're ready to enjoy deep relationships without your past getting in the way. Most of all, you’re ready to love yourself again & face your future with a sense of hope.
