I have a degree in Psychology and African/ African-American Studies from the University of Virginia, and I received my Masters Degree in Social Work from the University of Maryland in Baltimore.
Balance is hard. There are often many influences in our lives pushing and pulling us in different directions – work, friends, school, a continued global pandemic, relationships with others, relationships with ourselves. It can be hard to navigate, and it takes incredible strength to reach out and acknowledge needing help. My goal is always to support my clients in defining what balance looks like for them and taking steps to achieve it.

My theological approach is liberation theology and Black feminist theory that I use is to help women tell their own stories to heal.
Discovering one's life purpose is often an elusive and uncertain journey. People can live most of their lives and never discover their purpose. When the experiences of pain, suffering, and grief seem to be the norm rather than peace, joy, and love, the question is often, "why do bad things happen to good people?" Understanding and embracing life's most challenging experiences make the difference between resilience and despair. Your story narrated through your own lens can help you discover your purpose through meaning-making of all your hurts and find hope in the midst of your healing.

I bring my experience as a Black woman, mama, and wife, into this sacred space of healing.
Many times, as women and especially mothers, we are expected to be the burden bearers for everyone in our lives while our cups are filled. We are often expected to be superwomen while suffering in silence. Do you need a space where you feel heard, understood, and are able to flourish? Do you need a space where you can reconnect to the person you were before you took on the world? Whether you are facing a major life decision, going through a transition, a new mom or more "seasoned" mom, or simply need to learn how to better manage your emotions, I want to help you come back to a place where you feel connected to yourself.

As a Black man raised by a single mother, I have a special affinity to preserving the health, stability, and wellness of the Black family.
**NOW ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** Welcome to your first step and a vital decision to choose you! Being seen and heard are undervalued in our society. Do you allow the space and care that you need to be whole? Pouring from an empty cup is difficult. I welcome individuals, couples, and families, whether seeking self-enlightenment, coping, better communication, or unity. Though implied in the text, I extend a special invitation to the men. We feel we always HAVE to be "ok," but we know better, fellas! Seeking help is a show of strength.

Greetings, Beloved! For so long, you’ve longed to be seen and heard, respected, and feel valued for what you are--not just what you can do. You’ve been so busy with work, family, and social commitments that you’ve had to ignore the big pains and small hurts just to do all that needed to be done. It’s taken a toll though, even if nobody else can see it. But you’ve decided that it’s okay to prioritize your own health and wellbeing. You need and deserve more support, and this is your time to receive it. You’re ready to face the old wounds that have haunted you and to finally work through the issues that have kept you stuck.

Our mission is heal and eradicate the reverberating effects trauma in the African American community.
In person sessions available! 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.

You are the person who exudes competence, effectiveness and power. Your most likely the individual who is high achiever within your family, community and/or your profession. Secretly though, you feel like your just winging it. Everyone sees Your success… no one sees the Sacrifice that it took to get there. You're a deep thinking POC professional who needs a relationally psychodynamic approach so you can discover a new way to relate to yourself and others. You want to find your footing in life and stop hedging, fumbling and running into a dead-end.

I am most passionate about working with individuals who have lived through traumatic events. This includes sexual trauma, attachment concners, and racialized trauma. I am most passionate about working with individuals who seek support in managing depression and anxiety as they relate to negative life experiences. People of color have varied experiences that shape how we navigate the world and I make space for that in the therapeutic setting. Assisting with the navigation, coping, and processing of trauma is work that I find rewarding and the reason I am a therapist.

Life transitions may bring about unprecedented challenges that can evoke our deepest fears and anxieties. You’ve probably recognized ineffective patterns of behaviors and thoughts that have placed a strain in your relationships or perhaps you have recognized a level of discomfort in advocating for yourself and setting healthy boundaries with others leaving you feeling silenced and frustrated. Together we may uncover deeply rooted patterns of behavior and generational cycles of trauma that impact your current decisions/relationships and identify effective coping skills to help you troubleshoot and manage future problems with ease.
