As a Black cis-het woman, my speciality is working with Gen Z and Millennial women who are struggling with boundaries in their personal and professional lives.
Are you overwhelmed with the day to day mess? Are you still recovering from the impact of the pandemic? Perhaps you are a recovering overachiever, looking to set boundaries, or undergoing complex family dynamics. Did you think that being an adult would be easier?! As a person who is learning and growing as an adult daily, it's easy to feel bogged down. Do you want to be more emotionally aware and compassionate to yourself and others but don't know where to start? Life doesn't have to feel like this and I'm here to help! Let's work together so the load can get lighter. Change is right around the corner.

Through my experience as a Black woman, I fully comprehend the difficulties in navigating the intersectionality we all have within different aspects of our lives.
Let's face it, relationships are hard. Whether it's a significant other, family member, friend, co-worker, or even ourselves, it can be difficult to find meaning in the ways we try to communicate. Navigating the world of emotional connection with other humans can be a challenge, especially if we haven't always had success at understanding even our own personal emotions. There are so many different parts that make us whole, and my goal as a therapist is to help my clients safely explore and accept those various parts with empathy and compassion.

I believe that every problem has a solution and that solution lies within the person that is experiencing the problem. Life is to be enjoyed and if you are not enjoying your life it could be because of distractions. It is those distractions that sometimes causes us to feel overwhelmed, unhappy, frustrated and sometimes empty. My goal as a therapist is to help you explore those distractions and become the best version of yourself.

Hello! If you are looking for a therapist to listen to you as the expert in your life and explore your thought processes which have led to life events and circumstances, then I may be therapist for you. We find ways to cope with depression, anxiety, stress, uncontrollable life events such as divorce, moving, and the expected events of adjusting to the maturation process throughout life that are not always the healthiest. Even with the best plans and the best support systems, we may need to re-evaluate so we can update our thinking processes to ensure we are present in life and attempting to make our best choices.

Children and families have been the focal point of my career for over 20 years. I have learned that youth and adults benefit from listening, understanding, and validation. Nowadays, the impact of unresolved mental health issues is a clear and present growing risk factor. Please do not hesitate to speak with someone about difficult matters. Having good mental health can reduce risk factors and should be a prioritized need alongside our physical health. For mental health crises, you can call Mobile Crisis at 877-626-1772; or National Suicide Prevention Hotline 800-273-8255 (dial 988). For life threatening emergencies, please call 911.

What does “healing” mean to you? Is it a one-time event or an ongoing process? Maybe for you it’s both or neither or more? How you define healing will be based on your needs, goals and experiences. I am passionate about providing culturally-sensitive and affirming care for clients who suffer from overwhelming emotions as a result of trauma, medical issues, violence, grief, and lack of acceptance from loved ones based on their identity. I bring over ten years of practice experience as a medical social worker, therapist, and community health advocate to my work with my clients.

The process of working with a new client is to gather pertinent information about the client's psychosocial, environment, and past family history to help accurately diagnose the client. Once a diagnosis is made then a treatment plan would be developed conjointly between the client and me utilizing S.M.A.R.T. goals. S.M.A.R.T. goals are​ specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-based goals that would help the client be successful in treatment. If you are looking for a counselor who is genuine, compassionate, authentic, and who will listen and care about your concerns. Then I am here to help you restore your self-worth.
