The people I work with often identify as Mixed/multiracial, Black , Queer or Gender Expansive, and the couples I work with as interracial, Queer, or "straight-passing.
I work with individuals and couples who feel caught in the in-between: who have more than one answer to the question, "Who are you?," who can’t check off one box to describe their identities, or who feel expected to pick and choose parts of who they are. I'm here to reassure you that you make sense and you belong. You can build relationships where you feel seen and nourished and encouraged to expand. I deeply believe therapy is not about what needs to be fixed, but uncovering what wisdom already exists within and harnessing it.

I have experience working with diverse identities with a specialization in: Black women and men.
Are you tired of caretaking for everyone and feeling like no one cares for you? Do you struggle to give yourself the same kindness & compassion that you so easily give to others? Does guilt get in the way of you saying no and setting boundaries? Most of my clients are impacted by these issues and feel helpless in living an abundant life of self-love. My expertise is working with people to find healing and restoration through empowerment, developing insight, and working with the body. I understand how power, oppression, and trauma can contribute to distress and I work to instill hope.

If you are searching for a therapist with years of professional experience, that understands specific cultural nuances in the African-American community and who will be your advocate- while also holding you accountable for your own healing and work-then I may be the one for you.
I am currently not accepting insurance of any kind. I specifically work with women who have experienced domestic violence, sexual abuse/assault, natural disasters, loss of any kind and/or who have been negatively impacted by COVIC-19. I am a good listener and empathetic provider. Clients who want to develop a sense of purpose and are willing to take full control of their lives and decision making would fair well with my brief but impactful interventions. Clients can benefit from 4-12 problem focused sessions. We will concentrate on empowerment and getting to the "root" of the issues at hand in order to positively change behavior.

I specialize in helping black men come to terms with the trauma they’ve been through and how it's impacted their lives.
You’re fed up with the facade you’ve been forced to wear. You want to get in touch with all sides of yourself but feel like everyone around you is too intimidated or hurt by what you really think or feel. Everyone’s ideas about who black men can be have kept you boxed in and prevented you from having the relationships you really desire. Maybe you’ve been through discrimination that has left its mark on you or maybe you’re still carrying issues from when you were younger. Whatever the specific trauma is, you know it’s getting in the way of who you want to be today and you’re ready to grow past all of that.

What type of Detroit 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Detroit?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
