"Change is the only constant in life." -Heraclitus

 Life can be difficult when we are trying to change our way of thinking or figuring out why we have various thoughts. This journey can be uncomfortable and seem impossible. Sometimes the process to adjust to new things or cope with trauma can be downright ugly. The beauty is that we are all capable of changing. The first step is realizing that you need help making changes. Congratulations, you are already heading in the right direction!

 If you are looking for someone to talk with who will be open, honest, and non-judgmental, then you are in the right place. As a licensed clinical social worker, I have experience providing psychotherapy to children, adults, couples, and families. My expertise includes depression, anxiety, trauma, improving self-esteem, crisis intervention, and behavioral health.

 My Master's degree in Social Work (Howard University) and Bachelor's degree in Psychology (University of Michigan) have guided me to always use a person-centered, strengths-based approach. Experience working in community mental health has given me the tools to work through many different situations. My goal is to assist you in becoming your best self so that you can achieve the quality of life you desire. Your journey through change begins at your first appointment.
