I believe everyone has the capacity for self-healing and change and that my role as a counselor is to support clients on their journey towards healing. I'm passionate about helping others through the daily challenges of life and trauma. As a black queer Liberian-American woman I draw from my personal cultural background to encourage clients to embrace and reconcile to their own as they heal.
More than anything, I am honored to hold space with you during this process of unlearning and unboxing maladaptive beliefs, behaviors, and coping mechanisms.
I enjoy working with folks of all ages and am skilled in addressing racial trauma, mood disorders, sexuality, career counseling, relationship issues, and life transitions. My approach to therapy is a blend of person centered humanism, existentialism, and womanism with a theoretical root in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Psychodynamic Therapy.
I graduated from Old Dominion University with a Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling and from UNC with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication Studies. In my free time, I enjoy (listening, playing, and dancing to) music, being in nature, and hanging out with my one-year-old niece.
