"My Counselor Said..."

Focus of the month....

JUNE 2021

Your body has a story to tell.

It holds the narratives of every thing that has occurred to you and your responses to it. 

It stores the memory of your joy, hurt, pain, and trauma. 

Each is distinct in how it settles within you. 

Maybe it is the tension in your shoulders. It could be the tilt of your chin down versus upright.

Pain that resonates in your belly or your back. 

If there are no medical diagnoses or injury, possibly these could be stuck feelings and emotions as injury in the body. 

Let's practice releasing it. 

Tell your story. Take a deep breath. Accept/acknowledge. Forgive/Apologize.

Breathe.

Repeat. 

"You don't drown by falling into the water. You drown by staying submerged in it."

I work primarily with adults with majority of my clients being BIPoC women.  I enjoy working with entrepreneurs, business and creative professionals. 

As a Black woman in America, I also want to acknowledge the deep and painful roots that many of us share. 


My approach to counseling is collaborative and eclectic. My goal includes helping you understand how your challenges or “missteps” in life are shaped by your concept of self, your past and present relationships, certain cultural and inter-generational values. I hold space for you each step of the way.
 
I focus on tailoring each session to your specific needs with trauma-informed care,  acknowledging that some behaviors and thoughts are guided by events which you might not have been prepared to experience. 

Sessions with me are compassionate, intuitive, thought-provoking,
and organic with a touch of humor.



My intentions are to guide you through life stressors/transitions, interpersonal relationships, mood management, emotion regulation, personal development, and purpose and passion exploration.

 I offer wholistic life counseling services that will nurture your spirit, help you overcome personal challenges, and allow you to achieve your individual life goals. I cater to each of my client’s personal needs in order to unlock their full potential.

Entertainment Professionals: Film, Stage, Music, Art, Sports professionals .....You may have to balance your talent/gifts & "regular" life.

Sometimes in the midst of embodying the roles of your profession and passion, life happens.

Maybe it is a feeling of being drained or uncertain and needing a space to vent, be heard, and gain clarity in your life. Sometimes it is vicarious traumas from the work you do (i.e. team stress or acting roles). Challenges to self image and confidence may affect your ability to show up authentically.  Your relationships change or old wounds become more apparent.

Lets connect and do the work to heal and center yourself.

Individual Psychotherapy and Counseling for Adults

Guidance & Inspiration

Life throws many surprises at us, and while we cannot predict the outcome of any situation, we can take control of how we respond to certain situations. With these sessions, you’ll take part in psycho-education to learn more about the signs and symptoms you’re experiencing and how to assert your power of choice, communication, and care in whatever life may throw at you. You may spend time unearthing past experiences, addressing present issues, and looking forward to what is to become. 

The work you will do focuses on building self-esteem and self-concept, increasing tools/skills/resources to cope, and decreasing disruptive actions & thought patterns while fostering creativity, self-love, personal insight and emotional intellect. 


DISCREET and CONFIDENTIAL space for those in high profile positions & distance Tele-health counseling sessions to save on time and travel. I offer therapeutic space and time for you to express and evolve so you can get back to doing what you love from a healthy, more grounded space that works for you.  Flexible sessions time during the week daytime hours.
