You struggle to get out of the bed in the morning because you’ve wrestled with racing thoughts all night. Am I good enough? Will I ever amount to anything? What is God’s purpose for my life? Where is God in the midst of my anxiety? You feel overwhelmed just thinking of getting out of the bed and you’ve started to enjoy sleeping more than “doing” life.
If you do leave the house, you find it difficult to connect with people because you are afraid of rejection, judgement, and just feeling awkward. On top of that, you’re often fearful of your life and your safety just based on being a Black woman in America.
On top of all this you’re noticing that when you feel anxious, your heart beats faster than it should, you have difficulty breathing, your mind shuts off and you just freeze. You’ve even noticed that in your relationships with your friends, family, and even your partner, you have bursts of anger that are so not like you. You don’t even know where it comes from. You don’t understand why you’re crying all the time. You can’t even name what you’re feeling from moment to moment.
You’re ready to make a change. You’re ready to wake up and actually enjoy life. You want to experience joy, happiness, and feel confident to walk in your purpose. You want a healthier relationship with God, others, and especially yourself. You want to be able to identify and understand your emotions, why you have them, how to control them, not be controlled by them.
If you want to have a safe space to heal from childhood trauma and experience a deep understanding of how to love who you are, how God made you, and trust that you are far from a mistake, then we would be a great fit.
Let’s start your transformation today.
Historically, Black women are known to lack safe spaces for their unfiltered emotions and thoughts, with even their beauty being mocked, their hair treated with contempt. Their tears have been ignored, and their voices silenced through derision, mockery, and media-implicit stereotypes. I seek to create a space where Black women know that if they cry, their tears will not fall to the soil ignored. Rather, their tears will fall on fertile ground and we will grow them into something beautiful. This is what I desire for my clients: a safe space for their pain to be released so that they can experience healing and hope restored.
I have an eclectic approach to therapy, which means that I pull from a variety of approaches to best fit your needs. My primary modalities include Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), person-centered theory, psychodynamic theory, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and faith-based/spiritual approaches.
