About My Clients

I love working with women who may appear to have it all together on the outside yet struggle internally with feelings sadness or depression, overwhelmed with stress or anxiety, dealing with past trauma, feeling challenged by difficult relationships, unsure of your purpose in life, or simply feeling like something is holding you back from living your best life, I'd love to talk with you. I work with women of all races with a focus on Black women/women of color.

My Background and Approach

I am drawn to Control Mastery theory, a psycho-therapeutic treatment grounded in the later works of Sigmund Freud, is based on the premise that negative beliefs about one's self, formed via traumatic childhood experiences, are at the root of a person's mental health concerns. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy , Dialectal Behavioral Therapy techniques as well as meditation and mindfulness exercises are also approaches I also find helpful in supporting each individual in finding the right tools for their self care.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Black Women and Women of Color have unique experiences in the workplace and in our day-to-day lives. While I can't pretend to know all the nuances or cultural gender/ intersections: I know what it's like be a professional Black woman trying to make a way out of no way in a world that is not always affirming. You have a right to be happy and whole.
