Description of Counselor/Practice

Therapy is a vehicle of exploration of your higher self. Clients are encouraged to assess their overall functioning across the life domains to identify their healing/wellness opportunities. Trauma exposures are often stored in the body and can manifest in maladaptive ways such as low self-esteem, shame, anger, interpersonal conflict, impulsivity, stagnation, anxiety, depression, and demoralization. Accordingly, I approach therapy from a collaborative perspective encouraging clients to discover their medicine by honoring their truth and intrinsic value. Breath work is our most powerful tool for self-transformation. It is an internal skill that clients can develop and rely on. I combine classic models such as cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, and solution-focused therapy with wholistic practices such as mindfulness, yoga, and artistic expression. I have provided in-home therapy to child welfare involved families, provided therapy to adults with chronic and acute illness in the oncology setting, and served as a crisis clinician. As an African American therapist, I prioritize treating racial trauma, strengthening community, and cultivating wellness.
