I love working with clients that are dealing with challenges, and assist them in gaining the tools they need to increase their ability to live a sustainable life. Growing up in an area filled with poverty, I developed a personal understanding of what it’s like to go without due to lack of basic needs. As a Black woman, I have also seen a lot of racial injustice as well as the impact of unaddressed mental health challenges due to limited resources and access to care.As a result of my lived experiences, I refuse to remain silent and I have a desire to support those who are normally looked over and forgotten about.

Children and adolescents often experience difficulties that affect their lives in dramatic ways. Whether it be a change in the family system, a problem at school, or a bumpy journey through adolescence, growing up can be a very challenging time. As a result, kids often display a change in behavior, appearance, or academic achievement that may be of concern to their parents, teachers, and families. These changes are often a cry for help and can be best treated by individual or family counseling.

Raising kids is HARD work. Let's just say that first. That work gets even harder when life throws your family curve balls such as divorce, traumatic experiences, behavior/attention struggles or identity issues. As the child's caregiver, I know you are dedicated to your child thriving. While I am confident that my depth of experience will help explain behavioral outbursts and translate attitude changes, YOU are the expert of your child - not me and not that other guy! I strive to meet every family where they are and remind them of their natural strengths to help rebuild the bridge after life's curve balls.

Are you worried about your child? Does your child not seem like themselves? Your child may be irritable, aggressive and defiant. Your child may seem angry or withdrawn. Adolescents often refuse to talk to you, participate in enjoyable activities, experience thoughts of suicide or do things to harm themselves. Your child may have experienced a traumatic event or is having difficulty navigating a life change such as divorce, death of a family member or adoption. You may feel hopeless and not sure how to help your child. If this sounds familiar, I can help. I have experience working with children with these same issues.
