About

I know that asking for help can feel like a burden sometimes. Do you feel like you have to be “everything” to everyone but feel alone when your in need? Are you struggling to say “no” then resent your yes? Do you put everyone before you and then don't have enough time for you or your dreams? Do you feel “stuck” after giving so much and then realize your not making progress in your life? More often than we realize, we tend to lose ourselves giving what we don’t have while trying to manage it all; parenthood, relationships, careers, and life situations. We then become overwhelmed, depressed, anxious, or stuck about our next move.
My specialty is working with busy Moms' of color, struggling with depression and anxiety along with couples (dating, premarital, married). I am confident that together we can work to bring more awareness of your own needs, feelings, and thoughts to improve your situation and build your toolbox with tools to help you manage it all.
I make it easy to fit therapy into your busy life by offering virtual sessions with evenings and weekend availability. I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation. Email or call today to schedule your consultation.
