About Me

As a single mom of color, I have witnessed the extreme societal pressure placed on mothers to choose between their career or their children; leaving little room to even provide attention to their own self care. This ignited a passion within me to use my skills to support women to navigate through the chaos. My goal is to work with those women who may need help coping through these very real everyday stressors. Not a mom? That's ok! I can also empathize with the pressure placed on women of color in the workplace to work so much harder than their male counterparts. Its my hope to create a safe space for you to explore these feelings.

It can be challenging at times for women to have access to a therapist who can empathize with their experiences. Through a strengths based approach, I would love to share my personal experience with being a woman of color, a mom, a Christian, as well as a goal oriented professional in non-profit leadership and mental health.
Through this journey, I want you to find a sense of fulfillment, purpose, and self worth and I would be honored to take that walk with you. Our sessions will not be for me to "social work" you, but for you to unload some of the pressure and burden to make the ride a bit easier. No matter what it feels like, you got this... you can do this!

Shaquala is an amazing counselor. This past month speaking with her has been so healing and freeing. She taught me many new nuggets of wisdom that I will take with me as I continue this journey of motherhood. In addition to that, she gave me the encouragement and support I needed as a new mom. I know God has used her and will continue using her to speak truth and love into the lives of so many people, women, and new moms, like me. She is truly special and her Christlike heart and compassion shined through during every counseling session.

Shaquala is a great listener, advisor and trusted confidant. She’s helping me navigate a very stressful time in my life and has been instrumental in giving me confidence and perspective.

So far I am enjoying my experience and plan on continuing which is not something I actually thought I would do. Only 2 sessions in but excited for the future!
