Since I was a young girl, I was always curious and interested in why people are and/or became who they were. I was always curious about people’s behaviors and mindsets, especially one of my younger brothers who was diagnosed with a mental health disorder at a young age. Being apart of the Black/ African american community in the late 1990s and early 2000s, mental health was not really known or talked about as much as it is today, so I took it upon myself to learn more and educate myself so I could also educate my family, friends, fellow community, as well as other minority groups not only on mental health but also the importance of mental health and how our mental health could affect our physical health and/or vise versa. I have been in the behavioral health field for 9 years and love it! I received a double Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology and Criminal Justice in 2015 from The Tennessee State University and in 2019, I received my Masters of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lipscomb University.
As a therapist, I love to walk alongside you during your self discovery journey of becoming your true authentic self. And on this journey of well being, one will learn the importance of self love, self care, boundary setting, effective communication, problem solving, emotional regulation, and displaying your true authentic self in order to be “happy” in this world. And first things first, you MUST start with your mind, body, and spirit and I will like to assist you in every goal you set for yourself in a holistic way.
I love to work with all populations of all ages but my passion is working with minorities of all ages. My therapeutic approach/ therapeutic techniques that I gravitate more towards are person centered, reality therapy, choice theory, Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), anger management, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, herbalism, aromatherapy, and creative arts.
If you are ready to take control of your life, let’s start this journey together and vibe out. You are a lotus baby, you came out of the mud!
