The fact of the matter is…you may not be experiencing a major crisis right now. You may be far from hitting “rock-bottom.” You may have simply come to the realization that friends and family may be emotionally unavailable, emotionally unstable, or lack the skills to support vulnerable aspects of your life for various reasons, and you want help.
The good news is that the Black community is slowly making positive strides to reduce the stigma associated with therapy and dispelling the myth that therapy is for folks with “real” mental health issues. Well, I commend you for deciding to engage in therapy; it’s a highly recommended form of self-care.
As an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist and National Certified Counselor, I am honored to support individuals and couples during various stages of life. Whether you are experiencing challenges related to anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, self-esteem, ineffective communication, grief/loss, codependence or relationships, I may be of assistance.
I am also passionate about working with recently engaged or soon-to-be married couples. I am a certified Prepare/Enrich facilitator. Prepare/Enrich is a wonderful tool that allows you and your partner to complete a thorough assessment, which provides a personalized snapshot of your relationship and is used to guide sessions.
My goal as a therapist is to help individuals and couples clarify the type of lives they want to live, recognize strengths, identify obstacles, discover realistic solutions, and devise a plan to reach established goals. Our collaborative relationship will increase your overall self-awareness, which is necessary to heal and grow. I provide encouragement, motivation, and tools to assist with achieving the personal and relational goals you set out to accomplish.
