Meet Our Team

I approach therapy with the ideology that life is a culmination of interconnected parts. Feelings stem from experiences, experiences influence perceptions, and subsequently guide many of the decisions one makes in life.

 

When individuals experience stagnation or challenges, it may be connected to an array of life experiences. This may lead to a challenge with seeing beyond that which is. The subsequent result may serve as a breeding ground for emotional and physical pain, challenges in interpersonal relationships and unresolved grief. As a clinician, my goal is to assist clients with exploring these connections, dissecting their point of origin and collaborating with you to develop a viable strategy for resolve.

 

I obtained my Master of Social Work from The University of Michigan and received Bachelor of Social Work from Clark Atlanta University. During my 16 year career, a myriad of experiences have shaped my approach. From Program Development, to Adjunct Lecturer, Clinical Supervisor, Consultant & Clinician, I have a keen eye for assessing both individuals and systems.

Therapy can often feel like unfamiliar territory even when we know we need help. I provide a calm, safe, judgment-free zone. I meet the client where they are. I believe that what we think and feel can affect our everyday lives. In addition to that, our physical and spiritual wellbeing can also affect our mental health. I practiced psychotherapy in New York before relocating to Texas and I am currently licensed as a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) currently under clinical supervision and oversight in Texas.

I work with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, and past traumas. I’ve also worked with spouses of addicts who are learning to detach with love. I am also open to topics around gender identity and sexuality. My go-to modality for treatment is Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). 

Whether this is your first time in therapy or you’re familiar with the process, I’m here to take that leap of faith with you!
