Clinical Focus

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 12 years of counseling and teaching experience and over 15 years of working with nonprofits in the US and abroad. My clinical work specializes in supporting the African American community by and guiding professional women in the pursuit of life-work balance.  To that end, I specialize in supporting the professional African American woman navigating their complex desires to have a successful life and career balance. Embark on this transformative journey of self-discovery and growth with me as your counselor. Together, we will navigate the intricacies of your professional world, celebrate your achievements, and overcome challenges with confidence. Your success is not just a goal – it’s a journey we’ll embrace together. I also facilitate a closed women’s group for professional women under our Becoming a Better U brand.


I also enjoy supporting couples create a lasting foundation of friendship and support. In the intricate dance of love and partnership, building a solid foundation of friendship and unwavering support is paramount. I enjoy working with couples to create a lasting foundation and supporting the perinatal mental health needs of families. If you and your partner are seeking to enhance your bond, navigate challenges, and create a relationship that stands the test of time, I am here to guide you on this transformative journey. I use evidenced based practices to support clients such as being a Certified Grief Therapist, Perinatal Mental Health Certified, Gottman Method trained, CBT, Trauma-informed therapies and( perinatal mental health specialty).

Community Focus

I spent 2 years in the US Peace Corps serving as a Community Health Volunteer in Uganda. This experience solidified my cultural competence and continually informs my practice as a clinician, an educator, and social worker in all settings. I pursued a doctorate in health sciences to further my work as an African American women's health advocate with the H.E.R. Strength Initiative (Health for Everyone Restores Strength).  The mission of the H.E.R. Strength Initiative is to decrease health disparities for African American women in a way that incorporates patient rights education, technology, social support systems and transforming the mindset of the medical community that cares for them. 


As the Executive Director I support our practice by establishing strategic partnerships, ensuring fiscal management, ensuring ethical guidelines are followed and providing clinical supervision to provisionally licensed clinicians and interns.
