Over the past 20 years, I've had the honor of serving vulnerable people whose voices are often unheard as a Florida child welfare case manager, advocate for sex-trafficked survivors, and nonprofit leader. I’ve now received my Masters in Social Work from the University of South Florida and continue to bring healing to my community one therapy session at a time.
I am passionate about creating space for people to be themselves and share without judgment. So I’ll make space for you to process the stress of life transitions, grief, relationship issues, feelings of anxiety or depression, and all the things!
Personally, I honor how valuable spirituality and faith can be when it comes to healing. If you lean on your spirituality and would like to incorporate that into our clinical sessions, I am very open to doing so. However, I understand many people are also impacted by faith based trauma experiences. I'd love to help you unpack that hurt! There is no judgment here, and I welcome all!
Finally, I long to see communities of color heal from racial trauma and break free from unhealthy traditions. I see you and recognize your intersecting perspectives and experiences as a Black, Indigenous, or Person of Color. Let’s process the pain to discover the healing and recovery our souls and bodies so desperately need.
