Thank you for your interest in Strength Redefyned, where your needs are the priority - there’s strength in vulnerability and giving yourself grace. I provide inidividual counseling with a focus on prioritizing self care, stress management, and treatment of anxiety and depression. I also offer a specialty in couples/marriage counseling.
In addition, I offer a small Self-Care and Self-Compassion Group experience for my clients to explore what self-care means (emotionally, financially, physically, relationally, professionally, etc.) and how to prioritize, understand and implement it for you. Now offerring a small Self-Care group for fellow providers as well!
Often, driven and highly motivated Black/Brown professionals experience anxiety and high levels of stress that can present as feeling anxious, over-tired, nervous, difficulty concentrating, as well as other commonly overlooked symptoms. The demands of your career and personal life can create fatigue, whether physical and/or emotional. As a successful Black professional, I understand the challenges that come with being the one who is typically leading and helping others – “the strong friend”.
I am passionate about working with Black professional women to identify and define their strengths and goals, as well as to “redefyne” the narrative of strength. There is strength in intentional vulnerability, so let’s defy the belief that strength is not found in openness and improve your quality of life through self-care and stress management!
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and have been a mental health clinician for 9 years, and a helping professional for over 14 years. I obtained my Bachelor’s degrees in Social Work & Psychology in 2006 from The North Carolina Central University and went on to obtain my Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work in 2009 from the University of Pennsylvania. My background includes Counseling/Clinical Social Work domestically and internationally (United Kingdom) and work with the Military population.
My goal is to use my skills, training, and experience to provide a safe space for you to be heard and receive support during your stressful times. With me, you don’t need to have it all together, you only need to give me the opportunity to support you. With an emphasis on providing a unique experience of a space that will be yours and prioritize you, I look forward to meeting you!
