About My Clients

You may feel like you don't know who you are or where you're going. Possibly feeling like you can't figure out what you want to do, what you're good at. Maybe you are feeling pushed to do or be something else? You could be struggling to put these pieces together, leaving you feeling lost or like you're stuck in the mud. You could even be starting to feel alone, down or so hurt it feels like you're slowly withering away. You can get through this and put the pieces in your life back together.

My Background and Approach

As part of the LGBTQIA+ community and minority population, I know it's difficult to speak up or stand up for ourselves to get through the hurdles and expected standards of behaviors. I am committed to fully understanding each person's needs by connecting mind, spirit and body to get back to the root of who we are. The past 10 years I've studied and learned about the history of my roots, a unique blend of Cherokee Indian and African heritage, I found that my bloodline has a history of Kemetic Reiki Healing. As I learned more about how my family lineage practiced healing through nature medicines, plant oils, and energy work, not only did my spirituality and faith in holistic healing deepen, it inspired me to become certified in Usui Reiki. I have found that Reiki strengthens the mind and body's ability to heal emotional wounds. I blend Reiki Energy Healing with the traditional therapy process to help identify and heal the different needs or areas where we are struggling or blocked.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I became a therapist because I know what it is like to feel alone with problems, and how painful it is to not have the support, guidance or resources needed. I know that when trust is broken or privacy is betrayed how important it is to have support that is open, warm and sincere. I have learned that every issue deserves to be heard and respected. No problem, thought or feeling is too small. I am dedicated to helping people find a way to quiet the inner voice that says “I can’t succeed”, or holds people back from knowing or doing what makes their heart skip and feel overjoyed. I believe that everyone has a sparkling gem inside that will lead us to who we are. Your struggles, thoughts, and feelings matter. I believe we can learn how to find the resources we need to figure things out. I am here to support you in putting the pieces back together and help guide you to create the unique and magical life you were meant to live.
