"I believe that strength, style and soul are inherent in all people. Everyone is unique, purposeful and valuable. I also believe that we have the inherent capacity to be happy, healthy, and hopeful despite challenges that close us off from social, emotional, adaptive and mental wellness - even in chronic illness and pain.These challenges are why I practice with Ephphatha Consulting Services, Inc (ECSI). ECSI's purpose is in the name, Ephphatha, which means, "be opened!" If you feel closed you off from wellness in your mind, with your children, your family, relationships, or business, then I am the right choice for you."

"Sometimes our challenges overwhelm our typical ways of dealing with difficulties. Therapy can help to enhance competence, peace, strength, healing, and acceptance. My style is creative, collaborative, directive. I facilitate others to access hope and visualize healing, empowering you to confront the biggest, baddest wolves in your life, whenever you're ready. I specialize in treating problems rooted in intense experiences. Sometimes what we learn to do to survive something ends up creating problems for us later on. We'll work together to uncover what is holding you back and develop skills you need to live a rich, full life."

"Your mental health affects all aspects of functioning in your work, school, family, and social life. It can be difficult to manage your different roles when dealing with barriers like anxiety or feelings of loss surrounding life transitions, the stress of being a working professional, the onset of depression that comes with being a new mom, racial fatigue with being the only person of color in the workplace or the pressures of maintaining healthy relationships. You need a safe space, free of judgment to work through it all."

I graduated from Northwestern University with a master's degree in Counseling Psychology and worked in various healthcare settings before starting my own practice. I believe everyone has an innate strength to face life's everyday challenges. Sometimes, that strength gets buried under layers of psychological complexities.

Having a therapist that is the same gender and race as you is not a requirement for therapy, however in my years of experience it has served as a positive vehicle for healing.
