My Mission

I have been asked more than once “Why did you become a therapist?”. Most therapist’s response to this question is along the lines of “I like helping people.” More accurately I really had the desire to understand how people think. I have a true belief that thought patterns and experiences greatly play a part in who we are today.

I have over 14 years of experience working in the counseling profession. During this time I have had the pleasure of working with a variety of professionals who are renowned therapists and psychiatrists, artists, academics, and nurse practitioners. My core motivation when empowering others, is to assist them in achieving a fulfilling, authentic, and connected life. I believe in being an agent for social change and creating paths for others to find their happiness. My experience includes working with children, adolescents and adults. The therapeutic approaches that I have found to yield the greatest positive results, in my experience, are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Therapy and Meditative techniques. I have worked in a variety of disciplinary settings such as residential treatment centers, psychiatric hospitals, alternative schools, shelters, intensive in-home services, community based mental health clinics and a Mental Health Professional with Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services.


My formal education includes a Masters of Arts in Clinical/ Community Psychology from Norfolk State University. I in addition hold a Masters of Science in Mental Health Counseling from Walden University. I am a board certified Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor ( # LC7573) in the State of Maryland. I am a member of the National Board for Certified Counselor ( # 320920) as well as a member of the American Counseling Association. I am affiliated with TherapyDen and Therapy for Black Girls.
