I believe one of the most powerful tools we have in life is our voice. When we are silenced and not allowed the opportunity to express ourselves it can result in depression and anxiety. Over time it will impair our self-efficacy and value. It is vital to have a safe space to express your thoughts and feelings without judgment. When individuals are in an empathetic atmosphere and feel honored there is room for true healing to take place. Some of my childhood experiences growing up in a small town in Mississippi did not always allow me the opportunity to be heard nor seen. My primary goal of being a therapist is to honor the voice of others and have them know I hear you and I see you.

As I began to thrive in the career of being a helping professional, I recognize that my history fuels my passions. My professional goal is to present a safe space where everyone’s voice matters, relationships can be developed, and healing can take place. I have a passion for women, children and youth who have experienced childhood trauma during their formative years. In doing the therapeutic work of healing, your future can look far different from your past. I have had the privilege of serving in various programs human services from Mississippi, Alabama, Maryland, and now the Hampton Roads area. My desire to see wholeness as a reality for others has sparked my career in the mental health field offering services to support mental health, foster care/adoption, substance abuse, domestic violence, and community outreach. I earned my undergraduate degree from the University of Alabama in Social Work and graduate degree in Mental Health Counseling from Capella University.

I completed clinical training with Western Tidewater Community Services Board, Colonial Behavioral Health and UMFS-United Methodist Family Services providing substance abuse treatment, outpatient counseling children/adults, adoption competency treatment children/families, and case management. My skills and training have fostered my ability to help families heal together, develop greater communication, and strengthen their relationships. I have honed in the skills to work with multiple populations to include children, adolescents, adults and family therapy. My therapeutic principles and interventions help individuals work through depression, anxiety, grief/loss, life transitions, stress, attachment in relationships and advocacy.

Healing is a journey and you no longer have to be silent or walk through the process alone. I invite you allow your voice to be heard and begin to do the work to being the very best you possible. There is more ahead of you than behind you and you are worth it.
