Anxiety, depression and stress related to the impact of our everyday experiences can interfere with the ability to experience joy, even when engaging in things that might have previously offered us opportunities to feel happiness and comfort. This often stems from the narratives, thoughts, values, and beliefs that we've created based on our lived experiences and interactions with others as well as the adversity felt as we work to navigate through family, cultural, and societal pressures. Together we will work to rewrite our narratives and ground ourselves as we embrace an appreciation of our authentic selves.

Life comes with many challenges and obstacles that may seem impossible to overcome. We all have an innate need to succeed and prove ourselves as worthy and deserving of good. There may be times when we feel overwhelmed, self-conscious, or inadequate and we don't want to be a burden to others, so we don't ask for help. It's at these times when we need that support most. The truth is, we all face these challenges and with some self-reflection, mental energy, and focus, we can overcome those barriers and develop skills to help ourselves that become second nature.

One thing this pandemic did if nothing else is it made us turn inward. What happens when we turn inward, sometimes we may not like what we see or we may want to change things. As a black female therapist, I enjoy helping clients process inner child wounds whether that be related to trauma, racism, or other layers of societal expectations. Clients and I strive to create collaborative goals toward healing and acceptance of self. We can be both in a place in of acceptance and transition towards our healthiest self.

I currently have a waiting list. There is however a video available on my (still unfinished) website, that you can sign up to watch, that will give you a sneak peek into what it is like to work with me, and even provides you with a useful tool for starting to make changes in your life. If you do decide you want to work with me, understand that I encourage my clients to aim for more than simple "symptom reduction" - encouraging them to develop the clarity of vision and the skills that will enable them to live vitally and fully their "one wild and precious life".
