"This is Why I Do It"

I have struggled with limiting thoughts. I have felt marginalized and "not enough".

I have utilized therapy, coaching, natural healing, holistic and spiritual practices along my journey. I believe in a combination of wellness approaches and the necessity for wholeness and healing for the collective and the individual. 

My private practice was created out of the value to be visible for you with a grounded path in holistic wellness and living. I have a focused interest in cultivating the passions, gifts, and innate strengths within you and your community. 

​​

As a Black woman in America, I also want to acknowledge the deep and painful roots that many of us share and my dedication to adding to the visibility of Black wellness and mental health. 

​​​

As a Queer woman, it is important for me to hold space for others in the spirit of diverse sexuality, attraction, and connection. 

​​​

As a Creative woman, embedding elements of creativity, performance, art, and character embodying into healing, growth, and evolving is natural for me. 

As a Spiritual woman, with clairsentient and claircognizant abilities, I support your spiritual exploration and journey. 

I’ve gained coursework, exposure, and lived experience to many therapy modalities and alternative healing approaches.

I am a lifelong student. 


I believe in helping you bring your creativity, strengths, and talents forward in navigating tough and uncertain times. It is my belief that YOU are the expert of YOUR LIFE. I am here to guide, reflect, support, and encourage your self healing and evolving.​

​​​​​

I identify and have shared experiences within communities that are LGBTQ+, sex/body positive, and those within various relationship structures. 

​​​​

I continue to be creative with local and national film projects, TV, online streaming platforms and apps, and community/live events through dance, fitness/wellness, fashion/figure modeling, advocacy and human rights, and other forms of art for creative, healing, entertainment expressions and purpose. 

​​​​

I enjoy creative and leisure time with my wife, dog, and 2 cats and LOVE a good laugh, traveling, fitness and exercise, and all things art. 

Time in nature-moon & sun bathing, climbing trees & hiking trails, time in solitude, meditation, use of energy healing, bodywork, dance and music are important to me and a part of my personal wellness practice. 

​​​​

I am honored to be a part of your wellness journey.
