I strive to help clients through transitions. Anxiety and depression, like other psychological maladies, arise when we stop looking at ourselves honestly and acceptingly. These conditions are also recognized by their ability to disrupt the balance of the mind, resulting in unwholesome behavior which may give rise to suffering for ourselves and others. I aim to restore balance and to create honest acceptance.

As a trained Bowen Family Systems Therapist, I am eager to work with individuals, couples and families on the wide range of issues that exist in human life. I see all difficulties in life as opportunities to understand oneself better and think through the issues at hand. These difficulties can best be understood through a broad lens, that addresses all parts of an issue. Work in Family Systems allows one to fully comprehend one's part in the issue(s) and figure out the best next step.

With a down-to-earth, and empathic approach, I work with clients to create a relationship built on trust where clients can feel heard, understood, and truly known. Therapy is about helping you work through your own problems through exploring your past experiences, thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. My goal is not to fix you, but rather to help you work through your struggles and create a more meaningful life. My practice focuses on couples and individual counseling. Clients frequently present with depression, anxiety, relationship problems, family conflicts, grief, life transition concerns, and a multitude of other issues.

Going through changes? Some are easier to navigate than others. Often experiences and patterns can limit your response to challenges and keep you stuck in unsatisfying relationships and situations. Together, in a safe and supportive environment, we can examine what has been working well for you and how your life might change by responding differently. We can work together to make the next stage of your life more fulfilling, empowering, and satisfying.

I incorporate many modalities to aid clients in attending to their issues and self care with compassion. A judgement free space. People often come in crisis and stay as they deepen their lives and self awareness. I utilize a body, mind, spirit approach. I do not believe the use of talk only helps. In a world that continues to move faster and faster It takes many people 20 to 40 minutes to actually get fully present to their session. It is hopeful to witness people recognizing how good it feels to be seen, heard and understood.

It's a brave decision to seek therapy and the experience can be the greatest gift you give yourself. I offer a relaxing space where you can reflect and focus on personal growth and positive change. I provide positive feedback to help you address current life challenges and resolve long standing issues. Often the goal of therapy can be as simple as becoming aware of patterns and understanding how your motivations are linked to certain behaviors.

I am an experienced psychotherapist. I work best with persons serious about their desire to make their lives more meaningful and themselves more free. I enjoy being a part of the process of change that occurs in those who choose to make such a commitment. I work with individuals across the life span, including work with infants and caregivers, with adolescents and with adults. By experience and by inclination, I believe that, in choosing psychotherapy, one gives oneself a great gift.

Deciding to take the next step to participate in therapy can be a hard decision to make, but it can be one of the best decisions especially with someone that is holding space for you. As a black woman who grew up in a religious home, there was no room for therapy. I know now that was one of the biggest mistake made. We all go through things at different stages of our lives. I hope you know you are not alone. I would be honored to come alongside of you to walk through these hard issues in life.

"We all need somebody to lean on." Lean on Me by Bill Withers is a song that articulates one of the best things you can do when life is challenging. Reaching out to family, friends, and a kind professional for help will enable you to get support and make positive changes in your life. Asking for help can be a vulnerable and scary experience, but the results are often worth it. I am devoted to manifesting growth and stability with all my clients. I am an active, enthusiastic clinician who gives thoughtful feedback after listening carefully to the problem.

Thank you for visiting my psychology today page. I've been working with children, adults and couples for several years and through my experience I've developed beliefs about healthy development. 1.) Our experiences shape who we are and everyone deserves to be treated with patience, respect and dignity. We need a safe environment to open up and develop self-compassion. 2.) We need support and cannot work through our problems alone; all psychological problems are relationship problems and it is for this reason the therapeutic alliance is necessary. 3.) It takes intention to change patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving.

All of us -- women and men, young and old, poor, middle class and upscale folks, minorities and majorities -- have to deal with complexity. As a therapist I help heal hurts from the past, assist clients in managing present challenges, and work collaboratively to create more satisfying future lives. The people who see me for individual, couples and family therapy represent a culturally diverse group. Their difficulties range from anxiety and depression, to stress disorders, OCD/OCPD, relationship problems, employment issues, and bereavement. Many of these women and men report quick progress in better managing their personal, family, academic, and work lives.

I am a relational therapist working with individuals, couples, and those in non-traditional relationships. Seeking support from psychotherapy is a sign of inner strength and hope, even when it feels as if ones world has turned inside-out. Life rarely allows any of us a free pass; births and deaths, personal crises, relationship troubles, childhood trauma, etc. may meet any one of us head-on at sometime during our lives. Seeking help from psychotherapy is a worthwhile path to take when ways of coping no longer seem effective. I nurture the possibility of deeper understanding and self-knowledge by creatively engaging the whole person.

As we navigate our often-complex world, there are times when talking with a professional can make a significant positive difference. I work with children, adolescents and adults on issues that may be interfering with success at home, school, jobs or relationships in general. I provide a welcoming and supportive environment, in which trusting relationships develop. In addition to talk therapy and a variety of approaches, I also do experiential work including art, piano and even kickboxing - whatever might resonate with individuals. This is about making the process work for you.

You are the expert on your experience, I simply serve as a guide to the process. - Therapy is a partnership between you and me, (and my corgi Bennett who may make an appearance now and then - don’t worry, he’s bound by HIPAA too). - I am honored to be in a position where I am able to support my community. The community served include those struggling with a variety of relationship, intimacy, and sexual issues. I also work well with those who are navigating cultural transitions, such as self-identity / exploration, marriage, blended families, immigrants, and refugees. Navigating various domains of life is tough and you are not alone.
