About

As founder of Mending Messages Therapy Center, my mission is to deliver therapeutic messages that help mend broken hearts, minds, spirits, and relationships. I have devoted over 20 years to the field of Social Work and enjoy providing clinical services to individuals, couples, adolescents, and families in need. My focus is on helping identify and build on your inner strengths to help you achieve your desired goals. Together we will develop healthy coping skills and strategies to challenge self-defeating thoughts and barriers, that can prevent you from obtaining the life that you desire.
I offer experience in treating depression and anxiety, substance abuse and addiction, mood disorders, dual diagnosis, PTSD, and trauma. In addition, I have received specialized training in the areas of Family Relations, domestic violence, divorce and custody, child welfare, foster care/adoption, Multi- Systemic and Couples therapy.
As an African American therapist, I welcome diversity into my practice and work from a standpoint of love and acceptance of all human beings, with a belief that we are all more similar than different. I am currently accepting new clients, offering weekday and weekend appointments.
