“There is a tendency to underestimate how intensely distressing and disabling loss usually is and for how long the distress, and often the disablement, commonly lasts…There is a tendency to suppose that a normal healthy person can and should get over a bereavement not only fairly rapidly but also completely. But, loss of a loved person is one of the most intensely painful experiences any human being can suffer.” – John Bowlby, Loss, Sadness, and Depression
I provide compassionate and culturally responsive online and in-office grief therapy for Maryland African Americans in states of distress in response to the death of a loved one days, weeks, months, or years after the loss. I also support individuals struggling with anticipatory grief. My structured and integrative approach to grief and bereavement therapy is informed by my studies of: (1) trauma, grief and bereavement, (2) my own experience with traumatic loss, and, (3) my religious, spiritual, and, holistic wellness studies and practices. Therapy with me includes humanistic, somatic, nature-based, expressive arts, emotion-focused, cognitive and behavioral interventions, and healing interventions rooted within the Black Church religious tradition.
My practice is boutique. This allows me to give clients more attention than is typically found in traditional once a week therapy and/or agency settings. Working outside the constraints of various insurance panels also allows me to offer a highly personalized therapeutic experience.

I am glad that you found me, and would be honored to accompany you through your difficult season.
To My Fellow Therapists: In addition to offering individual grief therapy across the state of Maryland, I am pleased to assist licensed therapists across the United States who are interested in and/or preparing to work with a bereaved African American client. As your one-on-one and group clinical consultant, I will help you to adopt and personalize my structured, titrated, and integrative African American grief therapy practice. If you are interested in working with me in this capacity, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at email@example.com. I look forward to hearing from, and, helping you. ☀️
