Have you experienced stressors so severe that you cannot seem to move on? You may try to put it out of your mind and avoid triggering things, but you continue to feel stuck reliving those painful and frightening memories. Feeling controlled by your past can make it feel like you are destined to suffer. I have wonderful news though—recovery is possible! Having worked extensively with trauma and Complex-PTSD (C-PTSD), I can say with certainty that there is light at the end of the tunnel. There is nothing more rewarding to me than walking alongside clients as they emerge from the grips of their past.

Do you have “sticky” self-defeating thoughts that won’t leave you alone? Do you “know” you’re good enough but don’t “feel” it? Have you suffered the loss of a pet or loved one and struggling to find someone who “gets it”? I am here to help with these and more. We have all been faced with major changes and sacrifices since 2020. Some changes have left scares and holes in us. I truly believe that we all have the power to grow and heal within us; sometimes we just need a little guidance and specialized tools to get started. I can help you gain strength, motivation, resiliency, and a deeper compassion for yourself and your journey.

I’ll help you develop a better relationship with your body, and find a greater sense of identity and stability in life. Whether you’re struggling with an eating disorder, chronic pain, poor self-image, or difficulty accessing and dealing with your emotions - I’ll help you get more in touch with yourself and find a style of living that feels more comfortable to you. My approach is trauma-informed, so we'll pay careful attention to the ways that difficult past experiences may have closed off some options for how to think, feel, and move.

I am an African American/Black woman. I believe that representation matters in mental health services, especially as stigmas around mental health are being addressed as Black people/people of color are seeking therapy more often in today’s society. I am an Associate Clinical Social Work and received my Master of Social Work degree from Simmons University. My goal when working with my clients is to help you (the client and/or your family) learn how to better manage the symptoms and behaviors you experience while developing and maintaining positive coping skills. I am passionate about helping young women and young adults.

Does it feel like it's you against the world? I work with teens and adults who are having a tough time, acting out feelings in ways that don't get good results and not sure what else to do. You may not be satisfied with your relationships - missing a lot of red flags, or lashing out at people you wish you could feel closer to. Maybe it just doesn't feel like you belong anywhere. First let's find ways for the therapy hour to feel like one place where things can start to work better... feel safer, better understood, gaining skills to manage your emotions, learning how you come off to others and how to get better results.

If you are sick of having the same fight on repeat, staying up all night, alternating between doom-scrolling, online shopping, and planning imaginary trips, and you've run out of people you can turn to (because your religious/conservative/disconnected family is not an option, and you're too shy to keep telling your friends the same sob story) - I'm your therapist! OK, but if you need a therapist who won't flinch, who will go at the pace of the slowest part of you, and will listen and actually believe you: I'm your therapist! AND, if it's important to you that I am a WOC and openly queer...I'm your therapist!

For over 25 years I have help individuals address complex problems and/or attain significant goals by examining what is going on right now, discovering what your obstacles or challenges might be. Perhaps you feel at odds in your relationship, having difficulty communicating, struggling with your children, or a doctoral candidate preparing for an internship interview, an entrepreneur looking for a creative breakthrough, looking to change careers, or you just want to figure out how to have more fun. I can guide you with setting realistic goals regarding your individual needs and take the appropriate actions toward reaching your goals.
