About My Clients

The individuals I serve tend to be adolescents, college students, young professionals, adults, and families that are experiencing challenges with depression, anxiety, trauma, and life transitions. I am LGBTQIA+ affirming and passionate about helping women of color navigate the many stressors in their lives. I also hold confidential and therapeutic space for therapists seeking their own individual counseling.

My Background and Approach

I graduated Virginia Commonwealth University with a Bachelors and Masters of Social Work in 2011 and 2017, respectively. I have 10 years of experience in the mental health field where I provided services in environments such as schools, psychosocial programming, community mental health, partial hospitalization, and outpatient therapy. I utilize a holistic, trauma-informed approach that focuses on treating the whole person; physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and socially. Specifically, I offer interventions based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, and crisis intervention. In my practice, my goals are to 1) educate you on what you may be experiencing, 2) help you shift your mindset, 3) encourage you to practice new habits, and 4) assist you with creating a healthy and whole life.
