Fear, sadness, grief, anger, anxiety, betrayal, confusion, physical pain and other life/relationship/work stresses can leave us feeling lost and out of balance with ourselves and with others who are important to us. I have worked for 20+ yrs. doing both solution-focused and longer-term therapy with individuals and couples who are challenged with such issues. I actively engage with my clients to bring about new insights, and fresh ways of thinking, feeling and behaving where a re-balance can occur. Clients achieve greater clarity, empowerment, peace, and satisfaction and, in turn, feel more connected with themselves and others.

Life happens! At some point in our lives we are faced with challenges that effect us personally or professionally. Sometimes we have people we can talk to about these minor set backs. Other times, we wish there was someone we could talk to, honestly, about the most troubling aspects of our lives without fear of being judged. Having a supportive person in our lives who is objective makes a difference in getting through these "bumps in the road". This is, ideally, what a counselor or therapist is for.

My goal is to facilitate your healing, growth, and transformation. Rooted in the psychodynamic orientation, my therapeutic approach is "active eclectic", utilizing cognitive behavioral, Adlerian, and solution-focused interventions. I facilitate change by helping clients understand the underlying reasons why they feel conflicted and by helping identify patterns of behavior that are keeping them stuck. Together we work to develop new ways to respond to present day challenges.

African Americans who have formed one-sided, emotionally abusive, and harmful relationships based on dysfunctional cultural values is an unresolved issue. For those individuals with controlling cultural values, this need to stay in unhealthy, abusive relationships can be heightened. Individuals are more likely to over-internalize cultural values which can lead to self-sacrificing behaviors. I know it can be challenging to defy cultural values that have been central to your life. However, if these values lead to unhealthy and abusive relationships, you have the right to walk away to access freedom and liberation. Defy the lies.
