I am committed to helping women put their problem drinking behind them and build a happy, satisfying life.
Are you concerned about your drinking? Have you tried quitting or cutting back on your own, but feel you are just spinning your wheels? Are you trapped in a cycle of determination and resolve followed by the discouragement of slipping back? You've probably tried everything you know how to do but it just doesn't seem to be working. I am glad you are here because I would like to help. Working with an experienced, compassionate expert may be the answer you are looking for.

At times it may feel as though our power in our lives has been taken from us. Stress, life transitions, family issues, relationships, and many other factors can play a large role in making us feel anxious, depressed, and not living to our fullest potential. If you relate to this, therapy can help you find your power again. I have experience working with adolescents and adults who have experienced a myriad of mental health concerns, including depression, anxiety, trauma, bipolar disorder, and anger. My passion is helping girls and women reach their fullest potential and overcome challenges through empowerment.

I specialize in helping people recover from anxiety. I also work with women who suffer from depression, trauma, and complex relationship problems of all kinds. Too often, worries and fears get the best of us and control our decisions. Instead of living the life we want, we end up making choices in life and in relationships that are rooted in self-doubt, anxiety, and worry. I provide a safe, empathetic, nonjudgmental space in which we work together to reduce fears and develop new, authentic ways of engaging in relationships.

I teach Interpersonal Dynamics at the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business and have published an article for the book, " Women , Intersectionality and Power in Group Psychotherapy Leadership.
My goal is to help clients feel less alone in their struggles and more understood, as they work on what they wish to change in their lives and relationships. I believe that what has happened in our past shapes who we are today, and I help the people I work with explore the influence of the past in order to create a more fulfilling present. Within the therapeutic relationship, clients can practice and integrate more balanced ways to express themselves and connect with others. I integrate ideas and practices from relational psychodynamic, interpersonal, and modern psychoanalytic orientations.

As a woman stepping into adulthood, you find yourself afraid to face the unknown. Instead of feeling excitement about what's to come, you're paralyzed by insecurities--that deep down you might be a fraud, that you don’t measure up, that you’re never going to be “good enough”. These thoughts have seeped into your career, your education, your relationships. You feel isolated and hopeless, uncertain of what to do next. That voice of doubt inside of you won't shut up and it's holding you back from finding your purpose. I’m here to tell you that just because that voice is LOUD, does not mean that what it’s telling you is TRUE.

Transitions in life such as birth, illness, death, divorce, aging, or career change, can be exciting, but also, devastating, confusing or scary. There can be a variety of reactions to these challenges, and at times having to make choices can leave you feeling stuck or depressed, and unable to make a decision. My passion is guiding women through these life transitions with compassion, empathy, and support. As an Oncology Social Worker I have learned how important it is to get to the heart of an issue and work toward resolutions, skills I learned working with patients experiencing life threatening illnesses.

As a Black Woman , I also live with the societal and systemic challenges that my clients face.
I am currently accepting new clients Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursday mornings between the hours of 6am-9am. When you awake in the morning you expect to feel a sense of rejuvenation and restfulness. But sometimes you feel a weight on your chest. It can feel as though things are overwhelming and that you can’t catch your breath. This feeling may or may not have been present for a while. However, you are ready for a moment of peace. You are ready for a release. I am here to tell you: You are deserving of a space to express yourself. A space to be vulnerable. A space to process the challenges in your life. A space to be you.

With specializations in perinatal mental health, insecure attachment, anxiety, and trauma, our treatment course can help you realize all the answers you’ve ever needed come from within you.

Relationships are hard work. Sometimes we need help processing emotions and allowing our wounds to heal. Therapy can help unpack years of sweeping things under the rug, or simply equip you with skills to have more fulfilling relationships. In addition to couples therapy, I enjoy working with individual women dealing with transitional issues, anxiety & depression, and self improvement. I have a clinical interest in conflict resolution, parenting, grief & loss, infertility, and long term illness. I also have experience in corporate settings, providing therapy after workplace trauma.

Recently my research is focused around women , regarding embodiment.
I trained in practicing therapy through a holistic, anti-oppression, social justice framework.

My commitment to this work is ongoing, both personally and professionally. In my work with clients, I have focused on anxiety, depression, abuse, trauma, spiritual development, mind/body connection, chronic illness, relationship issues, and identity issues concerning race, gender, and sexuality.

I specialize in helping women struggling with relationship or dating challenges, low self-worth, and/or anxiety to tap into their strengths and thrive.
When you crave a fulfilling relationship but find yourself feeling burned out, disappointed by your dating experiences, or anxious about your current relationship, you may feel hopeless about your romantic future. You may start to question yourself and think- Am I ever going to figure this out? Will I ever be satisfied with my love life? What am I doing wrong? When you long to feel secure but often find yourself filled with self-doubt and feeling “not good enough”, it can be draining and isolating. You are sick of feeling stuck and deep down, you know there has to be a better way, but you’re just not sure what it is.

I'm passionate about working with autistic women and queer/nonbinary individuals on their journey toward self-understanding and self-acceptance.
Life can be incredibly difficult, and at times we may reach a point of feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, or frustrated with our situation. As a therapist, I strive to provide a safe and comfortable space in which you can explore the thoughts and feelings weighing you down without judgment. Seeing as you're the expert of your own life, I value each aspect of your identity — including ability, gender, sexuality, and race — as an important piece of your story.

I work together with adult individuals, couples and families experiencing adjustments to major life transitions resulting in anxiety and depression, including women with perinatal and postpartum concerns, grief and loss, and low self esteem.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over a decade of experience working with individuals, couples and families facing the challenges life presents when dealing with change and transition. Psychotherapy offers a safe place to explore difficult emotions, gain new perspective and heal from painful losses. My approach combines elements of cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, family systems theory, narrative therapy and psychodynamics. I place great emphasis on the therapeutic relationship with my clients and believe that the right personal "fit" is crucial to a successful therapeutic relationship and, in turn, to facilitating greater self-awareness and personal growth.
