About My Clients

It is my goal to provide a solution-focused and person-centered partnership based on safety and acceptance. I provide virtual counseling with evening and weekend appointment availability. I'm interested in helping women not only look strong but feeling internally strong. Providing healing and a sense of empowerment as you strive to live life to its fullest potential. This is the real flex.

My Background and Approach

I am a black therapist who concentrates on lived experiences of black women. My practice is Blackcentric, meaing it is safe space for those from the African Diapora. 5% of psychologist are black, as such, while I treat all ethnic groups, it is important to understand that I approach all therapetuic modalities from female global majority perspective. In this space one can heal without censoring thoughts regarding racism. I enjoy working with high goal oriented women with high stress, anxiety and likely experienced childhood T(t)rauma. My clients are women who are pulled together (on the outside) with strong personalities and utilize assertive language, but also suffer with anxiety, depression, resentment, and a critical voice judgement.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

“What inspires me as a clinician, coach and educator is witnessing how safe space can allow black women to release the weight off their shoulders. The greatest impact on your mental health with a counselor is building trust. You can’t build trust if you don’t feel heard and seen. Without trust you languish in your sessions with minimal emotional change. I believe that in the right community, Black woman can feel supported as they journey into the uncharted waters of life. I know my purpose is to create these intentional spaces, where all things are possible.
