Sometimes you can only be guided down a path by someone who’s been in your shoes.

My Therapy Style

I have worked as a social worker for over a decade and, after years of supporting clients at various hospitals and nonprofits, am redirecting my talent and experience to where my passion truly resides: my own community. I directly relate to the first-hand struggles of Black women, and especially Black mothers, face every day. As a mother to 2 vibrant, empowered girls, I also understand how necessary it is to build ourselves up higher than the world could ever tear us down. Struggling with infertility for several years, I not only understand the needs of women on their journey to motherhood, I experienced it firsthand.

My guiding principle is to support my clients from a place of nuanced cultural understanding, and in doing so, I acknowledge that sometimes you can only be guided down a path by someone who’s been in your shoes.

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I believe we all have a superpower and once we discover it, it is our job it to give it away. I truly believe my superpower is listening. I found so much joy listening beyond words and then processing those discoveries together to engage in the healing journey.

What are your interests outside of work?

I am an avid travler often setting my sights on an international excursion that allows me to eat something outside of my norm and engage in a physical activity that I have never attempted. My last adventure led me to Costa Rica where I found myself jumping off a tower nearly 15 feet high in the middle of the rainforest.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

I make sun water every morning by setting a gallon jug out in the sun daily and allowing it to charge. If you have never tried it I encourage you to, it naturally sweetens your water and hydrates your cells in a profound way.

Do you have any pets?

I have a houseful of pets (all that I did not purchase by the way). My daughter is a lover of all animals. We are currently adapting to being guinea pig parents and boy let me tell you it is an adjustment.
