The various approaches used in the therapeutic space at Sacred Path Wellness integrates holistic interventions with a specific focus on addressing depression/mood dysregulation, anxiousness, life transitions, challenges specific to Black women, high conflict/stress and various forms of trauma where difficult internal patterns/beliefs have formed as a result.
The path we walk in our lives can be steep, slippery, and chaotic at times. The mission of Sacred Path Wellness is to provide a safe space to explore and heal the emotional burdens we carry that can often lead to disharmony within. Allowing the space for exploration, restoration, and coming to know these parts of yourself that carry these burdens in your life (whether that is shame/guilt, pain, loss, traumas, feelings of worthlessness, overwhelming sadness, anxiousness/stress, perfectionism, fears and/or others), we can often grow free to move through the path of our lives as we are meant to, fulfilled and with peace.

Busy BLACK women! What if constant exhaustion was optional? What if you could say “no” and not feel bad? What if taking up more space in your relationship could actually make it healthier? What if “Because I can handle it … I’ll be okay” was NOT a good enough reason to push yourself to the limit? What if you didn't ALWAYS have to work twice as hard (at work and at home)? What if taking time out for yourself, actually lead to you having MORE time in the end? What if you could find more peace and rest without the people around you taking your advice, or finally working WITH you to solve problems?

At the same time, I bring my own lived experience as a Black woman, mama, & wife.
Do you need a space where you feel heard & understood? Do you feel disconnected from the person you were before...before kids, before marriage, before you took on the world? Are you a new mama or more "seasoned", facing a major life transition, or need to learn how to better manage your emotions? Many times, as women, we are expected to be the burden bearers for everyone in our lives while our cups are full; we are often expected to be superwomen while suffering in silence. If this is you, let me help you empty some of the contents of your cup so that you can come back to a place where you feel connected to you & you can flourish.

Our mission is heal and eradicate the reverberating effects trauma in the African American community.
In person sessions! Have you found yourself in the same relationships over and over? Are you STUCK in unhealthy relationships with your family and friends? Have you ever said to yourself “How did I get here again?” Do you have difficulty saying “no?” Unhealthy relationships can leave us heartbroken and unfulfilled. We spend countless amounts of energy trying to figure out where we went wrong all to no avail. We become sad, angry, jaded and defeated. Sometimes we give up on relationships all together. It hurts to much to stay and we are too afraid to change. We get STUCK between a rock and a hard place.

Navigating love, relationships, and trying to feel good about yourself as a Black woman, can be hard.
Superwoman, is it time for a change but you need some help? Do you feel like you just keep making the same bad relationship choices over and over again? Having trouble connecting with your partner intimately or sexually because something feels off? Are you feeling stuck or like things are getting worse? Maybe you're feeling empty or you just don't want to do anything? It can feel like a heavy load to bear, when you have all these questions running through your mind, but you have to be strong when you really are just TIRED, panicky, sad, & hopeless. I understand what you're going through.

I am particularly skilled in engaging my clients during the initial contact and sessions because I believe that the foundation of any successful therapeutic process develops from the beginning stages.

Relationships are hard work and can be tough to navigate through. Just like our bodies, our relationships require regular maintenance to keep them running well. When life brings about unexpected challenges, it is best to repair them as soon as possible to prevent further complications in the long run. Oftentimes we can do general maintenance and repairs ourselves. Other times, despite our best efforts, we need someone to look at our relationships, listen to us and help us make the best decisions. I am committed to helping you gain insight into your relationships, resolve conflict and improve your relationship satisfaction.

Depression, anxiety, stress, and trauma can all lead to feelings of heaviness and not understanding how to move beyond your current pain or numbness. Are you struggling to move forward with your life, because you can’t even cope with the day that’s in front of you? Or, are your thoughts in an endless replaying loop? You might be feeling disconnected from those you love, and not understanding why isolation has become your lifestyle. This is a part of your story, but not all of your story. Part of your therapy goal will include discovering a greater understanding of self, as well as establishing healthy coping strategies.

It is your time to live intentionally. Enough of the self-blame, guilt-shame, and disorganized thinking. It is time to take control of your thoughts and actions by making yourself accountable and learning the necessary tools to grow and glow. You are not just here by coincidence. You are clearly someone who sees enough value in yourself that you want to learn the necessary tools to elevate. There are days we feel less than or have major highs and lows. Think of therapy as an investment in yourself. Everything from more self-care, self-love, acceptance, and even forgiveness. This is a place to grow not just merely exist.

What type of Bowie mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Bowie?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
