About me

I am licensed in Virginia with 10 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, motivation, self esteem, and confidence, & depression. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.
As a multicultural therapist, I possess fluency in both English and Twi. This allows me to effectively communicate with clients who speak Twi as their primary language. I understand the importance of cultural sensitivity and strives to create a safe and inclusive space where Twi-speaking clients can feel understood and respected. My ability to speak Twi facilitates a deeper connection with clients, enabling them to explore emotions, thoughts, and experiences more comfortably and authentically. Through this culturally tailored approach, I believe I can help clients navigate life’s challenges, work through emotional issues, and develop coping strategies within the context of their cultural background. My commitment to providing therapy in Twi language ensures that clients receive the support they need to achieve positive mental health outcomes while honoring their cultural identity and linguistic preferences.
As a therapist , I blend psychological principles with spiritual perspectives to provide a holistic approach to healing. My extensive training and experience enable me to address a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, grief, relationship challenges, and spiritual crises.

My passion for helping others stems from a deep-rooted commitment to understanding and integrating faith and spirituality into the counseling process. Regardless of your religious background or beliefs, I will honor your values and utilize them to tailor our therapeutic journey to your unique needs.
