I am trained in Emotional Focused Therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, cognitive processing therapy and trauma focused cognitive therapy.
Life hits hard sometimes. Whether it is due to loss, painful memories, tragedy or everyday stressors, sometimes life leaves us maxed out. Our overwhelmed systems may cope by going into overdrive with anxiety or by shutting down into depression. Regardless of the particulars, when life knocks us down, sometimes we need support to get back up.

We begin to develop our sense of Self & identity through our interactions with others at an early age. Our self-esteem, our thought patterns that contribute to anxiety or depression, our choice of a partner later in life--- all are heavily influenced by our relationships with those around us. When you begin to understand the origin of your thoughts, feelings and behavioral patterns, you are better able to navigate your life. Therapy allows us to heal from trauma, process our grief, ease conflicts in our personal relationships, and develop a clearer sense of self.

I am passionate about trauma focused care, depression, and anxiety and plan to continue to nurture a specialization in trauma focused care.
I love working with clients that are dealing with challenges, and assist them in gaining the tools they need to increase their ability to live a sustainable life. Growing up in an area filled with poverty, I developed a personal understanding of what it’s like to go without due to lack of basic needs. As a Black woman, I have also seen a lot of racial injustice as well as the impact of unaddressed mental health challenges due to limited resources and access to care. As a result of my lived experiences, I refuse to remain silent and I have a desire to support those who are normally looked over and forgotten about.

" I weave together evidence-based practices such as EMDR and Trauma Focused CBT based on my client's unique needs and personalities.
Do you have distressing and painful memories that won't go away? Do you constantly feel overwhelmed by your thoughts and emotions? Has your life never been the same since something happened? Unresolved trauma, loss, or life stressors may make it challenging to regulate your emotions, have stable relationships, and leave you feeling tired, disconnected, and damaged. My goal is to help people break free of the experiences that are holding them back from the fulfilling and authentic life they deserve.

My goal as a therapist is to cultivate a safe and accepting space for clients to find empowerment, reclamation, and healing. Many of my clients are survivors of physical and emotional abuse, neglect, relational and attachment trauma, and sexual assault. They have suffered from deep relational wounds that have led to anxiety, depression, grief, fear, addiction, a sense of powerlessness, and disconnection. I seek to help my clients reclaim themselves through addressing core wounds, negative beliefs, and learned ways of coping.

It is natural to experience a range of emotions; some flooding us thoroughly, and others frozen at our core. Sometimes we all feel challenged by life itself—anxious about change, lonely with ourselves, feeling captive by our past, and running from our fears. This is why it can be helpful to seek out a therapist. Our counseling practice is focused on helping adults and teens who struggle with trauma, depression, anxiety, and chronic stress. As clinical therapists and trauma specialists, we can help you to better recognize and resolve challenges, so you can feel better oriented to your present and prepared to create a balanced future.
