I am a Michigan Native who now calls Tennessee home. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Fisk University, and a Masters of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from Trevecca Nazarene University. I am a pre-licensed professional holding a temporary license in Marriage in Family Therapy in the state of Tennessee. I am currently working under a licensed supervisor as a part of the process of obtaining permanent licensure.
My therapeutic approach can be described as solution-focused, client-centered, and emotion focused. I believe that most of the pain we carry around stems from different aspects of grief and loss. I believe that unacknowledged and unresolved pain can have adverse impacts on one's overall health. It can start to show up in our lives somatically, emotionally, spiritually, and relationally. It can even begin to affect our identity. I believe in creating a judgment-free and shame-free space where clients can safely acknowledge, explore, and heal emotional pain. I believe the relationship we have with ourselves shapes the way we show up in relationship with others. Healing emotional wounds ultimately creates a space to nurture and cultivate a loving and healthy relationship with our authentic selves, as well as with others.
In a society that equates busyness with success I think it is imperative to have a safe space to be still and check-in with ourselves. My role as a therapist is to create a space where you can show up at your best and your worst. Where I will combine my knowledge and training with my warmth and compassion to help you reconnect with your divine power.

Specializing in Individual Psychotherapy
Are you suffering from rumination, regrets, and living in the past? Are you constantly worrying or even obsessing about the future? Living in the past or the future causes you to miss out on the power or NOW and prevents you from living fully. I enjoy incorporating meditation and other mindfulness practices into treatment as a way to help. Clients anchor themselves in the present moment. Mindfulness is a powerful tool to help tolerate painful emotions, connect with our bodies, and pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without judgement.
Grief and Loss
A common misconception about grief is that it is only the result of death. However grief can occur in response to a loss of friendship, romantic relationship, marriage, familial relationship, or job/career, etc. Additionally, grief can also show up as a result of the loss of "toxic" relationships, and with the devastating realization that some one close to us may be incapable of showing up in ways we need them to. Grief can even show up for aspects of a former lifestyle that no longer serve us after significant growth. I am passionate about creating a space to sit with loss at any capacity
