As a woman, I am an advocate of women living in authenticity and in true purpose which is why I joined The Black Girl Doctor.
Does it feel like things are spiraling out of control? Have you noticed changes in your mood, difficulties with work-life balance, or trouble adjusting to changes in your life? So many of us wear masks as we navigate the many roles within our lives, and all the accomplishments, levels of education, and titles don’t seem to change that. Instead, they might make things more complicated. Everyone needs someone and deserves to be supported especially when faced with challenges.

I have 10 years of experience in Psychiatric Hospitals/Facilities and Community based agencies. I specialize in African American psychology, and how the residual effects of slavery, racism, systematic stressors, toxic culture norms and religious trauma hinders our relationship building, hinders our happiness and exacerbates our stress. In addition, I also have a strong background in trauma, depression, anxiety, several forms of psychosis and personality disorders. My community focus are Black and Brown people but I am clinically and culturally competent to help all people heal and become better, regardless of race or ethnicity.

The weight of the world is tough to carry; especially when it's too heavy or nobody taught you how to shift the weight. Black and Brown men have been taught and held accountable to be strong and to never complain leaving them unable to feel comfortable feeling overwhelmed or understanding of their emotions. At The Weight Room, we will spot you by helping you learn how to carry and lift the weight of life in a healthy way or we help you learn how to put it down and leave it for good. We provide a safe, culturally aware and responsive environment for you to get the support you need. A space where your cultural identity is not an issue

Therapy takes courage, and I believe that it is about exploring life’s transition from where you currently find yourself and working towards where you want to be. In this process, you will discover your most authentic self. I am committed to creating a warm, inviting, and empathetic atmosphere where you may feel empowered to create the life you deserve. I offer tailored therapeutic support for those who identify with marginalized and intersectional identities such as their race/ethnicity, gender, sexuality.

I believe that the work of therapy is to help you (re)discover your areas of greatest joy and to chart a path towards attaining a life of meaning, value, and purpose. To do that, however, requires us to lean into the pain and the sorrows. Rather than becoming distracted by a diagnosis, the aim is to figure out what is no longer working for you, as we can become trapped in patterns of behavior that continue to result in pain and suffering. My goal, then, is to help you become un-stuck, choose your joys, and move freely, fully, and confidently into a life that matters.

Society creates narratives about who we need to be and what we should have accomplished. Sometimes trying to reach these uncompromising standards causes us to doubt who we are, experience anxiety, stress, and sadness. My clients would describe my therapeutic style as non-judgmental, warm, and encouraging. I have achieved this by creating a supportive therapeutic relationship with individuals, couples, and families - “traditional” and nontraditional. Together, we can explore life transitions, relationships, sexuality, and mental and emotional subjects.

I believe therapy helps us understand the power of the mind. This is especially useful when we feel disconnected, marginalized, or stigmatized. When we feel this way, learning how the mind channels this information through thoughts, feelings, emotions, and perceptions, can influence us to recognize our own cognitive processes and how they impact our life. If we attend to our cognitive processes in a healthy way, it may lead to regulation of mood, clarity, balance and feelings of peace. We start to evolve and accept certain things about ourselves. We begin to feel at peace from within. I help my clients through this process.

One step, one step. So, this is a phrase I often say. I use it as a reminder that we will move forward, heal, achieve our goals one step, one moment at a time. If we feel or see ourselves slip back....we reset. We move forward again one step, one step.

If you are thinking about a change or are ready to take the leap, you don’t have to do it alone. Accepting that you need help is the first stage of change. I imagine that right now, you may be scared to make a move. You may worry that recovery will be hard and take forever. I hear you, and I understand. This journey can be an emotional ride of fear, shame, and guilt. You most likely deal with anxiety, depression, insomnia, or other emotions or behaviors that you are powerless over. Right now, life may feel unmanageable. Things will change soon. Recovery is a journey, not a destination.

What type of Midtown, Atlanta mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs.
