I use a holistic framework utilizing over 25 years of clinical and field experience in social work, education, and community organizing to help people and the social environment deconstruct internal assumptions, contradictions, and limiting beliefs that cause self, social, and environmental harming behaviors. My methods are reliable offering results that are emergent emphasizing human-to-human connections for problem-solving and building long-lasting interpersonal relationships across various identities while clearing out what gets in the way of THriving.
I facilitate a repertoire of embodied practices addressing impostor syndrome, dismantling internalized race, gender, and class oppression, cross-cultural dialogues to heal the soul wounds of racial trauma, and platforms like IONA (I -OWN- HER) infusing a womanist lens tailored for Aboriginal Black women excellence.
I believe people are not broken, mentally ill, or defected - I believe people have become stuck within patterns of survival and protection based on traumatic experiences and adversities like violence, unresolved fear, hurt, injustice, anger, rage, grief, loss, and bereavement. Now its your time to THrive! I got you. Are you ready to Thrive?Axé, A'hoe, Amen.
