People want to feel sure of themselves. They want to feel confident in what they are doing without second guessing themselves. The problem is, failed relationships, lack of promotions, or a mediocre life has led them to believe that they have no control. In life, there are some things that we cannot control but there sure are a lot of things that we can. I know how easy it is to feel unpretty when an ex has cheated on you OR how easy it is to self sabotage when past events did not end in your favor. The uncertainty surrounding a new transition (newly married/divorced; entering/graduating college; changing careers; single parenting)

I believe that therapy is a collaborative space for individuals to develop their own story through exploration and healing. I approach therapy through a non-pathologizing and harm reduction lens and understand that the client is the expert of their own experience. I view relationship as healing and utilize the therapeutic alliance as a manner of building trust in others and insight into personal relationships. I want to empower people through the highlighting of their strengths and strengthening of coping mechanisms that have been building throughout their life time.

The path to motherhood and the experience of being a mother are complex journeys. Whether you’ve struggled with pregnancy or have decided to pursue infertility treatment or adoption, you are not alone. You may have become a mother in a traditional way and still struggle with the demands of life or you may have decided not to pursue motherhood after unexpected difficulties. We have all experienced challenges as women and mothers and though we persevere, we rarely allow ourselves the space to process the profound personal and relational changes that occur in our lives.

While I enjoy working with many different types of people, my ideal client is someone who is open to exploration and can view therapy as a journey and a process, rather than quick fix. I work best with someone who can see me as a support and can partner in uncovering solutions that work best for them, rather than looking to me for total direction. I have helped individuals in successfully transitioning to the next level in their lives, increase motivation and self-esteem to improve relationships and sense of self worth, and have helped individuals establish the identity that they desire.

As a Black woman, do you feel that you are “strong” because you have to be and not because you want to be? It seems like you got it all together because you work, can take care of yourself, your child or children, your partner, look out for others in your family and your work responsibilities (microaggressions and all!). So from the outside, people see you as a strong Black woman who can take care of yourself without help. However, you feel alone, exhausted, and stuck. Sometimes you feel like do people love me for me or what I can do for them. You're on this site because you don't know how much longer you can hold on.

It’s ok to not be ok. And when you’re not ok, it’s ok to reach out for help. Though life can often get us down, it is possible to rise above your circumstances, take control, and fight back. I believe that insight is a powerful tool in creating change within. As a therapist, I can help you better understand the connections between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. With this new insight, you can identify problematic ones and challenge, replace, or reframe them. The path to change starts with identifying your underlying needs and finding more effective ways to fulfill them.

In a word, my approach to therapy is relational. I am at my best when I am centered, curious and genuinely engaged in my client's experience... exploring, nuancing and understanding their unique perspective and the struggles they are facing. I believe in the importance of finding the right "fit" between client and therapist and it is for that reason that I strive to be authentic and fully engaged in every session. My training, areas of specialization and personal style are well suited for those who might be seeking to go deeper in their understanding of themselves and their relationships.

You are probably reading this because something is not quite right in your life--either you are not feeling happy, you are feeling weighed down by fears and anxiety that make life difficult, or you are finding it hard to let go of and move beyond upsetting experiences that you have had, either recently or long ago. You may also be reading this wondering if you are alone or if others struggle with similar things. More importantly, you are curious if there is a way to find some relief, if there is a way out of this unhappiness and pain.
