If you've landed here, you have made a valuable decision to honor your inner needs and feelings. I believe that all individuals have a desire to live meaningful and purposeful lives, yet sometimes become "stuck" in unhealthy ways of thinking about themselves and their circumstances. I am extensively trained in the use of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, and the use of Afrocentric practices. I'm also a Certified Daring Way Facilitator which means I'm trained in the work and research of Dr. Brene Brown which focuses on managing issues related to shame and fear while learning to embrace vulnerability, courage, and worthiness.
My practice is devoted to working with women who are experiencing challenges with self-esteem, perfectionism, shame, anxiety, depression, boundary setting, work-life balance, relationship difficulties. I encourage women to embrace who they truly are, show up authentically, and learn to balance their needs and desires with those of others around them.
I view therapy as a collaborative process where the client and I work together to discover solutions to life's challenges. I strive to create a safe and supportive environment that enables clients to feel valued and free to express their thoughts and emotions without fear of judgment. I would be honored to support you on your journey of growth and healing.
