About My Clients

Are you constantly having to prove your worth as a professional black woman at work? Do you find yourself feeling insecure and as a result, thinking negatively about yourself? Climbing the ladder of success can be hard when trying to navigate racism and microaggressions in the workplace. The struggle is real and dehabilitating. I help you navigate your life and career without using substances to cope with depression and/or anxiety when experiencing microaggressions in the workplace.

My Background and Approach

I'm a loving and perceptive therapist who works collaboratively with my clients to identify tools that are needed to build a career and live a life worth living! I listen quietly and attentively, remembering details to tell truths that need to be spoken. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), National Certified Counselor (NCC) and Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CAADC). I am also endorsed by the state of Pennsylvania to provide clinical supervision! I have worked in substance abuse treatment centers (residential and outpatient) as a Clinical Director and therapist. I have a Doctorate in Higher Education with 15 years of experience as an educator in higher education. I continue to teach and create courses. I am a mental health public speaker and have spoken on Stress Management, Psychological Trauma, Targeted Self-Care, Setting Boundaries, Workplace Burnout, Microaggressions and more. I am a self-published author of "It's Time to Talk About Trauma."

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Life First Therapy is a safe space where Black women can go to therapy without fear of being judged for being themselves!
