About me

***Text Only***

If you struggle with trusting your inner voice, making decisions or engaging in negative self-talk and self-criticism, I can help you!

Your inner critic may ramp up when you work in toxic environments and have dysfunctional family problems and complicated relationships. Also, race, gender, culture, and other marginalized identities can increase your negative thought patterns, leading to self-sabotage, imposter syndrome and social anxiety.

I want to help you find a place of inner calm and confidence.

So, who am I?

I am an African-American CIS gender woman, licensed clinical social worker, and integrative psychotherapist with over 25 years of professional work experience.

My approach is integrative and culturally attuned, incorporating mind/body-based therapies. However, I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

I am grateful you are taking action toward a more fulfilling and happier life. Let's get started!

{Please Note: I offer EARLY morning and LATE evening slots for busy students and professionals using the text/messaging feature ONLY. ~ You may want to consider another therapist if you prefer to be on video or telephone}.
