About

Do you ever feel like no one really listens to you or understands you? Are you a person of color or a part of the LGBTQIA+ community and feel discriminated against or rejected? Life comes with many challenges and while you may try your hardest to beat those challenges but sometimes you need a little help. So how can I help? My goal is to assist you with self-discovery, self-healing, and empowerment to face life head-on. I specialize in working with adults and adolescents with of various racial identities and/or sexual identities.
Additionally, do you find that you or a loved one is struggling with work or academic success? I provide culturally competent psychoeducational, clinical, comprehensive, and ADHD psychological evaluation services.
I have a PhD in Clinical Psychology from Howard University and I am a Registered Psychology Associate in Maryland under supervision. I specialize in working with adolescents, adults, People of Color, and the LGBTQIA+ community. While trained in psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral techniques, I have found it most helpful to use an integrative approach.
