As a queer black woman I sought the space that I have created for you.
We all have a story and a journey filled with highs and lows. Our paths often lead us to challenge ourselves in ways we never imagined. One thought can turn into ruminating doubt, negative self-talk, or trigger past trauma. It is during those times when we deserve a safe space to unpack before continuing on our life's calling. Accept our invitation to heal in the convenience of your own home. We created a virtual healing space for women to grow and heal courageously. Do not allow emotional and subconscious barriers to interfere with living a fulfilling life.

Relationships are a tremendous part of our lives. When they are going well, they are a great source of joy, comfort, and meaning. When they are not, they can be painful and consuming, and lead to depression, anxiety, and despair. I specialize in helping people with all kinds of relationship challenges- affairs, divorce, friendships, work relationships, break-ups, step-family transitions, parent's divorce, dating, remarriage, parenting, business partnerships, coming out, feeling distant, feeling stuck, feeling insecure. In our relationships we have some unique, and powerful opportunities for healing, growth, and joy.

My work with individuals, couples and in transformative workshops is to guide and support clients in reaching their goals through self-awareness, analysis, goal setting and strategies for life change. Those who come to me for guidance and support need to be heard, really listened to and understood. Sorting out the deeply seated issues that have gotten in the way of achieving peace and satisfaction in daily living takes great courage of which I am honored to be witness. My education has given me the data I need but my best teacher has been life....79 years of it.

Deciding to seek therapy is one of the most important decisions a person can make. It is also one of the hardest. People are sometimes hesitant to come to counseling because they fear they will be misunderstood, judged or simply not heard. They believe therapy isn’t “for me” and therefore think there is no hope for change. I’m here to change that mindset.

If you are seeking counseling, you might be trying to make sense of challenging relationships, in the middle of an unforeseen transition, or just starting to process wounds from your past. With everything that you are dealing with, you may have noticed some patterns emerging that keep you from feeling like yourself--maybe criticism directed inward or at others, coping with food or substances, or just shutting down completely.

Female Therapists

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
