About My Clients

Is the child, teen or young adult in your life experiencing behavioral or mood problems? Are those problems the result of trauma, grief or other life changes? Challenges that affect relationships with family and friends and the ability to function should not be ignored. It can be overwhelming to try to help your child navigate difficult times but you don't have to do it alone. Let me teach your child the necessary coping skills to make it over life's inevitable hurdles.

My Background and Approach

I graduated with two BAs in Psychology and Music from Spelman College in Atlanta. I also have my MA in Counseling Psychology with a forensic concentration. I completed the majority of my training in play therapy with children traumatized by both community and domestic violence. I am also trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and grief work and have done extensive work with foster and adopted children. I have worked with juvenile offenders and victims of crime and believe that healing relationships can be powerful catalysts for change. I combine play, art, and narrative therapies with evidence based practices in a way that is tailored to each individual client. I will work with you and your child to determine the goals of therapy and will collaborate with your family to determine the best ways to achieve those goals. To find out if I am a good fit to help you and your family, call and schedule an assessment today.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in looking at things holistically and helping clients address their issues comprehensively. I want to help children and teens learn not to let the things that happen to them overpower their lives. "Ships don’t sink because of the water around them; ships sink because of the water that gets in them. Don’t let what’s happening around you get inside you and weigh you down." - unkown
