My goal is for you to feel comfortable enough to allow yourself to be vulnerable while feeling safe, as that is where the healing process truly begins.

I primarily work with Black transitional aged youth, young adults and working professionals and couples struggling with life transitions, relationship issues, imposter syndrome, perfectionism, trauma, stress management, mood disturbances, anxiety, depression, and issues related to sexual health and wellness.
