Life affects us all in a variety of ways, but it’s how we respond to those experiences that determine the type of person we are. Some of those experiences can be painful and traumatic. Truthfully, healing is painful as well, but what is most detrimental is holding on to that pain and trauma. Taking a step in your healing process takes courage. Being here on this page, shows that you’re taking that step towards internal peace and healing. Your experiences contribute to the layers of who you are, however, those layers don't have to become walls and they don't have to linger on in your everyday existence.
As a wife and mother, I developed a deep and distinctive strategies of displaying empathy. I'm passionate about working with individuals, couples, and families of diverse backgrounds and age groups.
In 2017, I earned a BA in Psychology with a minor in African American Studies. From there, I began working with Clients who’ve experienced trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, and various forms of abuse and neglect (sexual, physical, mental etc.). This motivated me to become a greater qualified ally to the mental health community. In 2022, I earned a MA of Counseling Education with a dual concentration in Clinical Mental Health and School Counseling. In alignment with providing a therapeutic environment, I use CBT, Person-centered, and Solution-focused approaches with my clients.
I look forward to collaborating with you to restore your peace and to learn the tools to heal in your own way, on your own time. You are the expert on your life and only you can commence your new journey.
