I am passionate about guiding clients on their journey to be their better self. I utilize a person-centered, trauma informed, and empowerment approach when working with clients. I believe therapy is a tool that should be afforded to all individuals, and it is important for clients to have a therapist who looks like them and/or is understanding of their cultural experiences. As a Black clinician that identifies as a cisgender woman, I prioritize working with Black clients in general and Black women and LGBTQI+ persons in particular.

I help couples find balance by recognizing the role they play in their dance. Perhaps you try so hard to please everyone else that you end up feeling defeated and unfulfilled. Saying yes when you really want to say no. Or maybe you spend so much time being defensive you aren't really listening anymore and nothing changes. Afraid to do things differently because it's uncomfortable and scary. Imagine a life where you can be free to be yourself. A life where you both accept each other for who you truly are. What would it be like to take charge and make moves that speak to your souls? To feel like equal partners?

Hello and welcome! I am so glad you are here and have made a courageous choice to seek healing. Like our physical health, I believe we must also take into consideration the “vital signs” (mood swings, sadness, irritability, excessive worry, etc.) that indicate the state of our mental health. Whether it is caused by stress from overwhelming responsibilities, parenting, past trauma, or even just having difficulty communicating needs to family members and friends, I believe these can all be signs that we need a little extra support and I would like to be that support for you.

It can also feel like feeling lost, misunderstood and easily distracted. My approach is to create an environment where you feel understood, seen, and heard. We can explore your struggles, feelings, thoughts, and guide you to examine your experiences with the goal of improving your quality of life.
