Being human can be hard under the best of circumstances. When anxiety, panic, obsessive thoughts, repetitive behaviors, and difficulties in interpersonal relationships are added, the challenges can be daunting. It is a true honor to be able to accompany people on their journey towards better navigating the challenges of life with greater calm, curiosity, compassion, and courage, as well as deeper connections with those around them. As a Professional Counselor, I have the privilege of working with clients to discover their path towards a meaningful, authentic, and rewarding life.
Highly Sensitive People (HSPs) are often resigned to living with a lot of discomfort, anxiety, and guilt. Much of this stems from not being aware of or honoring your true needs. It is difficult, and can even feel wrong, to honor needs that feel different from those around you.
Clients who find me to be their perfect fit tend to be in their high school to early adult years (40s) - especially athletes and members of the LGBTQ+ community. I work with individuals and relationship structures experiencing concerns such as anxiety, depression, stress or trauma related to gender, race and/or religion.
I know firsthand what it feels like to show up for myself, even when I don’t feel it. As a Black woman, I understand how hard it is to live authentically in a society that makes you feel like you aren’t enough. My ideal client is someone who lives at the intersection of multiple minority identities. I enjoy helping individuals cope with stress, anxiety, depression, issues related to identity and the impact of organized religion. I prioritize Black and non-Black queer people of color in my work.
