About My Clients

I specialize in helping individuals and families who are experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, family conflict, lack of confidence, and life transitions. As a Level 1 Trained Gottman Couple’s Therapist, I help couples who are struggling with marital/premarital hardships and communication issues. I also have a passion for working with the African American community, the LGBTQ community, and the HIV/AIDS community.

My Background and Approach

I was born and raised in Memphis Tennessee. I completed my undergraduate degree in the Big Easy at Xavier University of Louisiana earning my B.S. in Psychology with a minor in Speech Pathology. After earning my bachelor’s degree, I earned my master’s degree from a COAMFTE-accredited program through the School of Medicine at The University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Since graduating, I have relocated to Orlando and am now looking to establish myself in the sunshine state. With each individual being different, I select my therapeutic model based on the client’s personality, wants, and needs from therapy. I am to assist in helping individuals care for themselves while providing a safe, yet impactful environment in which any person from any walk of life would feel welcomed. Together, we will focus on setting both short and long-term goals. I will provide you with a set of feasible tools that you will be able to utilize outside of therapy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

“What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality.” I am a firm believer that change begins from the inside-out. I aim to help people who are struggling to live in the here-and-now as well as assist in helping individuals care for themselves. I recognize that there is still an enormous stigma surrounding seeking therapy, which is why I commend you on helping me eliminate the stigmas and stereotypes that revolve around mental health.
