If you’re ready to work with a therapist who understands the unique and challenging journey of being a Black woman and is committed to helping you thrive after trauma, reach out today to schedule a consultation!.
Growing up in Jackson, MS, experiencing poverty, and living within a dysfunctional family system set the stage for my passion for helping others overcome painful experiences like mother-daughter trauma, daddy issues, cyclical romantic relationships, and educational & workplace abuse.

My personal and professional journey has led me to focus on understanding the impact of negative social influences on the lives of African American boys and men.
Sometimes asking for help can be a difficult task. Whether it's for yourself, your child, or another significant person in your life, we all should be able to ask for help without fear of judgment or stigma. My practice specializes in helping teens and adults process life's difficulties and identify sources of strength to overcome them. All the while taking into account the web of social and cultural barriers to becoming healthy.

As a queer black woman I sought the space that I have created for you.
We all have a story and a journey filled with highs and lows. Our paths often lead us to challenge ourselves in ways we never imagined. One thought can turn into ruminating doubt, negative self-talk, or trigger past trauma. It is during those times when we deserve a safe space to unpack before continuing on our life's calling. Accept our invitation to heal in the convenience of your own home. We created a virtual healing space for women to grow and heal courageously. Do not allow emotional and subconscious barriers to interfere with living a fulfilling life.

Traumas like spiritual abuse, unfulfilling friendships and relationships, family dysfunction, and sexual assault wreak havoc on the minds, bodies, and spirits of countless Black women. Although we crave and deserve the time, empathy, and tools to heal, we are more often expected to “hurry up” and push through our pain so we can move on to the next task.

The decision to begin therapy is one that requires courage and a desire to improve one’s life. As we navigate a series of crises unlike anything we have experienced in our lifetime, therapy has become even more important as a source of support for the challenges we confront. Having a trusted helper can make a significant difference in our lives. No matter what you are confronting, I have years of experience helping people cultivate more fulfilling lives. Additionally, it is my purpose to be an ally to and a safe space for the disenfranchised in the Queer, Black, Latinx, Asian, immigrant, Jewish, Muslim, and atheist communities.

Whatever the internal or external challenge is that's getting in your way— I believe you have the power to change your future and your whole family tree by putting an end to intergenerational pain and destructive patterns. The process of personal growth (especially with support) can actually rewire your brain to shift more quickly from automatic negative thoughts to a mindset that’s more supportive of your wellbeing in every way— mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
