About My Clients

Are you struggling with constant self-doubt, regret, or overwhelming worry? Rest assured, you're not alone in this. Your thoughts DO NOT define you and your worth is undeniable. Do you struggle with setting boundaries or communicating your feelings to others. Worry not, we will work to build your confidence through resetting negative thought patterns that cause negative self-talk. In sessions, you will feel more connected to the person you want to be.

My Background and Approach

In my therapy sessions, I'm not just a listener – I'm an educator, equipping you with a deeper understanding of your symptoms and empowering you with relaxation and coping skills. Together, we'll harness the power of Cognitive Behavioral Techniques to tackle life's most stressful moments. Fret not; I have provided therapy in clients’ homes for most of my career. I enjoy finding alternative and creative ways to engage others through games, videos and music while engaging in good old fashion talk therapy. I get it, I struggled with constant worry my young adult life. I aim for my clients to feel safe, comfortable, and understood in sessions. Taking that first step towards help may be intimidating, but on the other side of fear lies joy and peace. Don't hesitate – take the leap and book a session or consultation today.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe everyone has the ability to change and grow. I believe therapy can be a transformative process that teaches you the tools to love yourself. These tools last a lifetime and are invaluable. As for me personally, I am a mixed-race woman of color with a background living in the inner city as well as in the rural parts of Connecticut and I understand the struggles and joys of both environments. I am a big foodie; I love to cook new innovative foods and bake. It is my coping skill in stressful times. I get it, I struggled with constant worry my young adult life. I aim for my clients to feel safe, comfortable, and understood in sessions. My practice is called MY THERAPY because I believe your session is a space for you. You are driving the bus to your life, and I am simply your navigator in the passenger seat, just tell me where you want to go, and I will help you get there.
