“The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases.” – Carl Jung
Very often we think there is a rule book to life and how we should live it when it actually varies from person to person. There are many things that cause stress, from daily life tasks to traumatic events. This stress can lead to anxiety, depression, and many other mental diagnoses. Navigating life can be an overwhelming task, but luckily things like therapy can make it a little easier to figure out what works for you. I believe therapy is a great resource for you to develop your personal “toolbox” full of coping skills and techniques to assist you in navigating your life.
My psychotherapy treatment is based on person-centered, mindfulness, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approaches. I focus on the mind/body connection, so along with traditional talk therapy, I also provide yoga, breath-work and meditation services. I primarily work with black people who deal with the side effects of intergenerational trauma & systematic racism. This includes black people that are transition-age youth, college students, young adults, and professionals who struggle with high-functioning anxiety or depression, imposter syndrome, work/life balance, OCD, relationship/dating issues, major life transitions, grief and trauma. I also work with a variety of individuals from diverse backgrounds including minorities, people with disabilities and the LGBTQ community. I enjoy helping my clients create healthy boundaries in their life and develop a personal self-care routine. It is my goal to help others figure out how to live their best lives; making mental health relatable and obtainable.
I am a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor, Licensed Professional Counselor Intern and 200-hour Registered Yoga teacher. I graduated with my masters from the University of North Texas and received my bachelors degree from Arkansas State University. I’ve been passionate about mental health and wellness since I was a young child, but the death of my late father whom died by suicide in 2011 really pushed me to pursue my passions fully. In my free time, I enjoy advocating for mental health and suicide, providing psychotherapy to the community, and practicing yoga.
