You appear to have it all figured out on the outside, but on the inside, you often feel nervous, scared, and overwhelmed. You’re successful and have achieved great things, but you still don’t feel worthy. It’s hard to feel good enough when you always need to please others and be perfect. This has left you questioning yourself, exhausted and anxious. You’re not sure why you’re feeling so anxious. Perhaps it's a fear of failure or rejection. You’ve learned that your successes are what makes you valuable. This mindset has helped you get to where you are today, but it's ruining your mood, your ability to relax and your sense of self.
Things can change for you! You want to feel validated and understood. You want to exist freely and authentically, so you can let go of everyone else’s expectations. You want to be present and enjoy the positives, while creating an empowered and grounded sense of self. You are the expert in your own life; my job is to help you uncover what that means for you.
I specialize in working with Black women through a trauma informed, anti-oppressive, relational framework. I use interventions including EMDR, mindfulness and somatic techniques to support your unique needs. I offer a warm, non judgmental space for you and I am providing totally virtual sessions for your convenience. Book a consultation with me today!
