I am also skilled in working with men and women who have grown up in homes with the disease of alcoholism and mental health illness.
Welcome! My practice is based on the belief that life brings us many challenges and at times we can get stuck. Feeling stuck can cause us to feel uncomfortable symptoms - anxiety, depression, anger, etc. I believe that therapy is a process where you can gain tools to address those challenges, determine what needs to be changed, work towards making those changes while navigating all the thoughts, feelings and emotions that may come up in the process. I strive to provide a compassionate and non-judgmental environment where clients can work towards living a value-driven, meaningful life.

Have you had depression and/or anxiety symptoms during pregnancy or one year postpartum? Perinatal mood disorders can feel isolating and confusing. I have a passion for working with pregnant women and mothers. Motherhood comes with its own unique set of challenges such as loss of one’s identity, work life balance, isolation, and guilt. I recognize how hard it can be to feel the pressure of being the "perfect" mother. Often times women do not share their personal struggles about motherhood for fear of ridicule. I create a judgement-free space where you can speak openly about their experiences.

I welcome individuals from all walks of life to engage in therapy with me, and I have a specialized focus on the unique issues of college students, Black women and individuals of color.
One of the pillars of a fulfilling life is the ability to be our authentic selves. Sometimes obstacles, hardships, and missteps cause us to forgo authenticity to survive. As a result, we may feel stuck, lost, or alone in our struggles. As a therapist, I see myself as a partner to my clients in their journey toward healing and growth. My approach is holistic - I consider the whole person and their context in everything I do, and I work collaboratively to ensure that each session feels personalized and effective. I provide a safe space to process where you are and begin to make progress toward where you'd like to be.

My work is mostly with millennial, young adult and mature women of color.
You have been where you are for a while and now you are finally ready to make a change for you. Unresolved hurt, doubt, struggles with self worth, imposter syndrome, fighting for everyone but you, feeling stuck, overwhelmed and the list goes on. You need someone to help you process the past that is hindering you from living healed and whole in your present. As a licensed therapist it has been my life’s work to help people just like you go from wounded to healed. It's time to make you a priority and give yourself space to focus on you. It's your time to grow, process, explore and heal from the inside out.

I also specialize in issues that are of special concern to women , such as motherhood, balancing work and family, and women 's health and reproductive issues.
Many people experience barriers to feeling satisfied and fulfilled in their lives. Therapy can help you understand and remove these barriers by providing a warm and safe atmosphere in which you can express your thoughts and feelings, and, if necessary change your behavior. As your therapist, I will be sensitive and responsive to your needs, while providing honest and forthright feedback that will help you accomplish your goals.

We work with women in their 20s, 30s, & 40s, dealing with anxiety, relationship uncertainty, & life transitions.
Do you constantly feel on edge, overwhelmed or anticipate future events with worry and dread? Do racing, ruminating thoughts impact your ability to concentrate on tasks, manage stress or engage socially? Living with anxiety can be a distressing, frustrating and sometimes frightening experience. You may be preoccupied by "what if" questions about the future that you can't control, causing your thoughts to spiral and fuel more distressing emotions and physical symptoms. The ongoing, looping cycle of anxiety can impact all aspects of your life, including work performance and your relationships.

I work with Black men and women who feel that their life is not where they want it to be, or expected it to be, and desire direction, career satisfaction, and getting out of feeling stuck.
You wake up feeling overwhelmingly paralyzed knowing that you have this never-ending “to-do” list that never seems to get done. You’re struggling to connect with family and friends, and let’s not even talk about dating! You feel stagnated in your career and wonder if and how you will reach your goals. Or maybe you have a birthday coming up and you totally expected to be in a different place in your life by now. It seems like everyone else just “gets it” or “has it” and you are just trying to make it.

It's not easy to make a decision about needing some clarity and support. No one received a playbook on life and often times what used to work to feel good stopped. We can pause, and examine feeling overwhelmed stressed or stagnant.You may be struggling with perfectionism, work, family, relationships or a general sense of malaise or anxiety. Even highly accountable professionals face these issues. Education and success offer no immunity to the everyday issues of life. Most of us look good on the outside.

Finding yourself in deep personal distress may be an indicator that you're wanting (and ready for) change. A little exploration and understanding often improves your sense of self, which in turn, can deeply effect your work, play, relationships, and outlook on life. Seeking assistance with the process is a common human need and will often catalyze it. It begins by recognizing and honoring the signals of distress and understanding what may fuel them.

I’m grateful to have this opportunity to connect with you. The therapeutic process is a sacred journey. Here we can share in a safe, non-judgmental place. If we have suffered addiction, anxiety, depression or trauma we can uncover the aspects of ourselves that need healing. The quality of our lives is directly connected to the quality of our relationships - with ourselves and with others. When our relationships are suffering, everything is impacted. For that reason, in our therapy sessions we explore whatever is unfolding in your relationships and we discover how to bring awareness and skill to these crucial connections.

Allowing yourself to be supported is the first step towards becoming your best self. However, without adequate support, overcoming feelings of sadness, overwhelm, disconnection or insecurity can be an exhausting and isolating experience. This is why I understand the importance of finding the right therapist. You may be seeking to feel truly heard and understood without judgment by someone you can trust to help you feel more grounded, confident, and satisfied in your everyday life. As a therapist, my main goal is to create that safe and trusting relationship to guide and empower you towards achieving ultimate personal growth.
