It wasn’t always easy growing up or getting through my 20’s. I felt like the world was up against me and I couldn’t make any mistakes, especially as a young Black woman. I focused on trying to be “perfect” so that I could escape harsh judgment that I knew I’d receive anyways. Instead of experiencing triumph from my efforts, I ended up exhausted and burnt-out. I soon discovered how my past experiences affected me. Now, I guide others in discovering how parts of themselves and their past have led them to having similar experiences. I assist in showing clients that they are able to make mistakes in order to grow and gain life lessons.
In working with you, we would process current obstacles that have led you to feelings of unhappiness and discord with life. We would also process how the past has affected the present so that the future can be much better. Strategies and guidance are also provided so that you can have tools to use as we both work on elevating you to the life you want to live. While I mainly utilize EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), I also utilize CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), and Psychodynamic Therapy to assist clients in reaching their goals for therapy.
My hope is for you to feel safe and at peace in therapy to be yourself, without judgment. My aim is for you to have enhanced emotional intelligence, higher self-confidence, and for you to know your worth and accept yourself. I invite you to take the first step towards freedom of the mind by reaching out to me.
