About Me

Need a safe space to talk and process? Let's chat!

I believe that we are who we are because of our relationships and interactions with others. To further understand our own identity, actions, feelings, and beliefs, we must first understand how our initial ideals about life were formed, whether that be through our family of origin, past relationships, trauma, and/or societal influences. As a therapist, I like to process past experiences to see how they are affecting our current experiences; then, I like to help create a new, empowering narrative to help better our future choices.

To begin my narrative, I earned my master’s degree in marriage and family therapy from Drexel University. I have been a practicing therapist for over 5 years.
Because I am trained as a marriage and family therapist, I specialize in incorporating a systemic perspective when working with individuals, couples, and families. I like to use cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) interventions and incorporate self-empowerment and self-advocacy by using narrative therapy. Through these lenses, I have helped people who are struggling to cope with anxiety, depression, life transitions, and family dynamic shifts.

If you are feeling disempowered by your current experience and would like to have a safe space to process your perspective, I am here to listen and help empower you to re-author your life experience!

I love that I was able to find a Black therapist on this app. It made me feel a lot more comfortable and she's amazing. She really understands and helps me get to the core of the problem and helps me name it so that we can work on things to fix it. Even after I start seeing someone who can diagnose me, I would like to keep our weekly sessions.
