About My Clients

You may also be blissfully happy and seeking pre-marital counseling with a future spouse, therapy is right for you too! Let me meet you where you are and guide you through learning tools and techniques to move beyond your presenting problems and into YOUR BEST LIFE!
My Background and Approach
Before we begin, I need to understand who you are. Our work will be individualized and based on your goals and values. While using systemic techniques, my person centered approach will underscore the work we do. I provide a safe space to process your areas of concern and navigate through your anxiety, depression, grief, and/or adjustment difficulties. In addition to individual, couples, and family counseling, I also specialize in reproductive health counseling. Every journey is different, however, the feelings that often accompany infertility and pregnancy loss include frustration, blame, feelings of inadequacy, guilt, judgment, shame, and bitterness. For those IVF Warriors, those who have experienced pregnancy loss, and those who are unsuccessfully trying to conceive, together we will process these experiences and the complex emotions that accompany them. Psychological evaluations for embryo donors and recipients as well as couple consultations for third party reproduction services.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
My clients are as diverse as my personal friend group. I believe in and work toward creating a fair and equitable society. I have participated in a variety of social justice and civil rights initiatives and demonstrations. I am a member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, the Collaborative Family Healthcare Association, and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. I have presented at a variety of conferences and symposiums. My areas of research include; reproductive health disparities, reproductive justice for Black women, infertility and mental health, the impact of chronic illness on couple and family relationships, Multiple Sclerosis and caregiver fatigue, and various issues impacting the LGBTQ+ community. I provide groups, workshops, and training in the areas of fertility/infertility counseling, diversity and inclusion in the workplace, cultural competency in healthcare, and mental health in the Black community.
