“Healing yourself is generational wealth” -Charlamagne Tha God
While there are many different reasons for people to seek therapy, I believe that great therapy always begins in the context of a safe and supportive relationship. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process in which I use my skills and experience to help clients with whatever challenges or struggles they face. I support clients from a supportive, non-judgmental space honoring where they are and where they want to go.
My educational background includes Liberty University, BS in Psychology and the University of Southern California, Master of Social Work. I am a certified Anger Management Specialist and a Certified Facilitator of Parenting the Positive Discipline Way Group. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), I have learned from and worked alongside some of the most innovative and inspiring therapists gaining experience with various patient populations along the way.
My passions include collaborating with adolescents and adults around such issues as ADHD and executive functioning, stress management, trauma, anxiety, and mood disorders, with a broad goal of promoting emotional well-being and resiliency in the context of these particular issues.
In my personal life, I enjoy hiking, traveling, and reading. My faith is an important part of my foundation and has shaped the woman that I have become. As a woman of color, I believe that it is my duty to help to eradicate the stigma of therapy within the black and brown communities.
