My areas of focus include psychological assessment, counseling therapy with pediatric, adolescent and adult clients, and African American psychology for clients with autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, learning disabilities, blended families, and military or veteran related stressors.
Hi! In a world where so many of us regularly get the message that we are flawed, I think it is important to start by saying something that we might not hear so regularly, which is, that it is okay to be you. But if I’m being honest, being yourself is not always an easy thing to do. As a therapist, I place priority in creating a therapy environment where clients feel safe to share the most authentic versions of themselves without fear of judgement. In addition to a safe therapeutic space, my goal is to assist clients on their paths towards self-expression and self-acceptance no matter where they are in their journey.

My practice focuses on psychological evaluations for children, adolescents, adults, and seniors. Some reasons folks seek my help is to assess for autism, intellectual deficits, learning disorders, ADHD, as well as to address possible depression/anxiety that often accompany these conditions. In some cases, I am asked to perform testing to inform the efficacy of ADHD/ADD medication through the use of continuous performance testing. My approach is to learn about the whole person rather than rely on tests alone to produce an evaluation best suited to your needs.

"As above, so below". The ancient saying reminds us that the ways in which we experience life and encounters with others are based on patterns of behavior and beliefs about ourselves in the world that have developed over time. Often these patterns and beliefs serve us well, other times they create inner turmoil, frustration, and confusion. As a therapist, I am committed to the facilitating the process for you of discovering unconscious patterns and beliefs, how they have been beneficial or harmful, and learning to make consciously informed responses to the problematic situations in life that you are facing.

Life has a way of providing us with times where we feel so hurt, messy, or emotionally raw that we may find ourselves wishing to be alone and hide - perhaps even from ourselves. Therapy provides a safe space and opportunity to delve into our relationships with others, ourselves, past events, and hopes in order to illuminate our preferred way of navigating through life. In my work with children and adolescents, I value learning the personal narratives that influence their sense of self, who they feel they are "supposed" to be, who they wish to be, and the problems that keep getting in the way.
