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.

I am a firm believer that therapy is for anyone who desires to enhance their life in some capacity. Therapy is a process rooted in self-discovery and evolution. My approach to therapy is one that is person-centered, which involves meeting you wherever you are in your journey. I strive to create a space of warmth and trust where you feel safe opening up to me without fear of judgement. I will show up with compassion, acceptance, patience, and empathy. A culmination of education and training allow me to assist you on the path to self-discovery. I am currently an LMSW pursuing my LCSW under the supervision of Zahara Williams, LCSW-S.

I have experience with military veterans, as well as adults who experience anxiety, eating disorders, body dysmorphia, and issues pertaining to grief, boundaries, communication, self-esteem, and stress management. Our journey may include spending time exploring past/present experiences to understand how they have shaped your thoughts, emotions, & behaviors.

Starting this journey can feel overwhelming, or maybe even impossible. I will be here to walk with you through every step of the process. I look forward to connecting with you and learning your story!

As a therapist, I have learned that most progression comes when a client feels connected through the heartfelt conversations that take place within a session. The need to be heard, when no one else is listening, the need to be seen, when no one else is paying attention and the need to know that 'I am' important even when 'I' cannot see how important 'I am'.  Meeting a client where they are and focusing on their needs are always top priority in my practice.  I accomplish this by being honest, transparent, and creating a safe place to share deep inner thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
