I also have subject matter expertise in Christian-, criminal justice-, and African American-related issues.
Someone once said, "The decision to ask for help is not easy and requires courage." Sometimes it is both challenging and absolutely terrifying to invite a perfect stranger into one's space that doesn't appear to be as "put together" as we would like, especially when what has one "falling apart" is substance use. I am of the belief that with a focused mind, determined spirit, and faith, there is no trip DOWN you can't fall UP from.

Feeling undervalued? Like you don’t belong? Feeling disempowered and disillusioned? Struggling with imposter Syndrome? Anti-blackness in your work environment making it hard to adjust and fully see yourself? Racism in general got you feeling down?

As a Carribean - American Black woman my background fuels my dedication to honor the multifaceted aspects of my client’s identities and I am attuned to the importance of topics and issues around culture, race, racism and oppression.
I believe it is a privilege to be present during the journey clients embark on to access a more authentic self. Therapy can be a space to do just that and everyone is deserving of that space. I believe in meeting you were you are and working collaboratively towards further insight and addressing your goals. The process of therapy can be daunting but with a supportive space, exploration, understanding of individual cultural context, I believe true healing can emerge.

I have done extensive research and training on issues commonly experienced by women of all backgrounds, within the Black community and within Black romantic relationships.
The word Sankofa means "one must go back in order to move forward". The idea is that in order to move forward into our highest potential, we must use the best of what was in our past. As a relational therapist who primarily works from a Solution-Focused approach, the word Sankofa reflects my belief that learning from our experiences in the past can contribute to healing in the present and future. I believe we are all capable of change through an effective solution. I have experience bringing about the changes that will lead to a healthier and happier life.

What if I told you that all you have, in this moment is all you need to achieve the healing and relief you are seeking?  That you have within you blueprints of healing, wisdom, survival, joy, possibility, and potential because of who you are and where you’ve been? I hold a deeply dynamic view of the human condition. I practice primarily from a psychodynamic + narrative framework. I fundamentally believe in autonomy and freedom; our pasts, the richness embedded within the stories we tell, and am fascinated with unpacking the root systems of the beliefs, narratives, definitions we hold close.
