Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness. -Desmond Tutu. Sometimes it is hard to be hopeful when we are faced with problems in our life. Oftentimes claiming hope is the first step towards overcoming challenges, whether they be depression or anxiety, relationship stressors, or accepting and flourishing as individuals with multiple identities. From the onset of our time working together, we will establish hope as a foundation. From there we can address whatever burdens you carry together, to give you the knowledge and skills you need to live fully and happily.

With additional post-graduate training in Sex Therapy (including training in kink /poly/open relationships) through faculty at Hopkins and U of Michigan, I work to improve both physical and emotional intimacy.
As one of a few psychotherapists in Memphis who is also AASECT Certified as a sex therapist, I treat a full range of sexual, relationship and intimacy issues. Sex is one of the deepest and most powerful experiences we have, yet it can also cause distress and embarrassment when it does not go smoothly. Compounding the problem, many have been socialized to feel uncomfortable with sex or haven't received accurate sexual health information. Many people struggle in silence with sexual dysfunction and others have erotic interests that might be considered unusual by some- any of the above can result in tremendous amounts of shame.

I am a kink -aware professional and am knowledgeable in helping those who identify as polyamorous or non-monogamous navigate relationships.
Developing your personal and relational identity is the top focus of the therapy I provide. My goal as your provider is to help you reach your full potential for growth and happiness. I help those who are experiencing gender dysphoria, sexuality concerns, mood disturbance, anxiety issues, behavioral issues, trauma survivors, and those who are self-harming or suicidal reconnect with whom they are essentially. I believe it is imperative to identify and examine systemic, environmental, and community influences that may be thwarting your growth and decrease self-blame for factors outside your control.

"The way you tell your story to yourself matters." - Amy Cuddy We each have a story to tell and that story creates how we see ourselves, how we interact with the world around us, and how we manage the challenges life places in front of us. I approach therapy from the viewpoint that our personal story matters and we can change and shape our story through the therapeutic process.

20-25% of new moms can experience symptoms of a mood disorder after delivering a baby. These symptoms can also occur during pregnancy. Dads and partners can experience postpartum mood disorders too! Growing our families can be an overwhelming period. The experiences unique to making, carrying, delivering, bringing home, and caring for a new little human deserve equally unique attention. Since 2014 I have served families in Greater Memphis and West TN as they have walked a variety of journeys including Infertility, Infant Loss, Pregnancy Loss, Surrogacy, Traumatic Birth and Mood Disorders. I look forward to serving you.

Do you find yourself "stuck" in old patterns? Are you having difficulty with managing stress, whether it is related to relationships or work? Do you find yourself unable to move past old hurts or pain? Through collaboration, therapy is a wonderful opportunity in which individuals can explore the answers to these questions. Working together helps create a safe and affirming environment in which individuals can learn how to live life more effectively. My therapeutic approach is flexible based on the needs of the patients, but is deeply rooted in the idea that much of one's suffering occurs outside of his or her awareness.

Does it feels like life is stressing you out? Does it feel like there is this tension, but you don't know what it is? Is everyone around you telling you to relax and unwind? If only it were that easy to relax, but it takes effort to drop the weight of the stressors and triggers that bother you daily. Those things that range from small to large that cause daily anxiety and reminders of trauma.

Rachel Held Evans wrote that "we live inside an unfinished story." Are you lacking clarity about what you want to do with your life? Did you have a difficult or confusing childhood, and now struggle with connection to others? Did you experience a traumatic event or relationship that has been difficult to overcome on your own? Do you struggle in relationships and wonder why you have the same problems time and time again? Do you have a chronic illness and experience the emotional pain, disappointment, and despair it can bring? If any of this resonates with you, I can help you write the rest of your story.

You've never really felt like you are enough. Sure, you've been successful in school, at work, and well, at life... for the most part (at least it looks that way to other people). But deep down, it has always felt like there is something missing... something wrong - and you wonder if maybe there's actually just something wrong with you. You push your feelings down. You stretch yourself too thin, work too hard, and just can't say "no." You worry about what other people think of you and hope that you're enough for them. You wish it could stop - that you could feel good enough to have happiness and love and actually feel worthy of it.

Are you feeling so overwhelmed and frustrated that you just don't know how to move forward? Are you frustrated that life just doesn’t seem to be moving in the direction you’d like it to go at the moment? Maybe overwhelmed with negative thoughts, patterns, and past experiences? Life happens all over our plans sometimes and that can definitely hinder our progress and impact our daily quality of life. It can be hard to determine how to move forward, where to start, and develop a concrete plan to get there without getting stressed beyond a level that we can manage.

To the ones who struggle to love themselves because the voice in their head keeps telling them not to. To the adults who carry the scars of a rough childhood and the shame that comes with it. To the ones who seem like they have it all together, but are hiding their struggles with anxiety and depression behind a joke and smile. To the ones who were never taught how to deal with grief, anger, sadness, or fear and are coping the best way they know how. To the ones who were disowned or rejected by families or friends for who you love, who you are, or what you believe. I see your strength, I see your pain, and I see your courage.

The most important parts of mental wellness are the ability to increase one’s self-awareness and broaden one’s perspective. As your counselor, I will provide a safe and judgment free environment for you to gain a better understanding of whatever issues you are dealing with as an individual, couple, or family including marital/relationship, mental health issues. The main goal of most clients is "to feel better," and I am here to help you make that goal more specific so that you can grow in the areas most important to you. I also strive to destigmatize counseling for men, Black / African-Americans, and other minority groups.

As a therapist, I strive to create an environment that affirms who you are as a person. Therapy involves some of our most vulnerable experiences and my practice centers on being supportive so you feel secure while exploring ways to improve your daily life. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families. So much of a positive human experience involves being heard and validated by others, especially in our own homes. I will work with you and your loved ones to learn healthy communication skills to improve your relationships, increase acceptance and understanding in the home, and learn to manage conflict in a healthy manner.
