About

My life purpose is to break generational curses and make mental health a household conversation. Being a woman of color, mental health has not always been an assessable conversation. In the black community, we are always told to be strong, get over things quickly, and keep looking forward. Unfortunately, that meant we spent years overlooking normal human emotions that caused us to develop bad and unhealthy habits and relationships as an adult. Now, being a mental health professional and therapist, I am destined to make a difference, make mental health an enjoyable conversation, and continue to help bridge the gap.
Some of my specialties are depression, anxiety, grief & loss, race-based traumatic stress, woman Issues, trauma ptsd, career and life coaching, and couples therapy. I am able to meet you where you are and process your past, present, and future. Together we can conquer it all and I will be here by your side every step of the way.
As a therapist I accept everyone where they are but I am also going to hold my clients and families accountable so you can leave better than the way you walked in. Once we connect, we are now a family and I am not going anywhere. I hope to meet you soon.
